This weekend we were lucky enough to take part in comedian Chris Gethard’s super secret show. For those that don’t know him, Chris is a comic genius and part of the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. He’s been part of the Conan O’Brien Show, plays a super fan on ESPN, and starred in a one man show simply titled Darryl Strawberry. Anyway, for the past few months he’s been running his own talk show at UCB, which we sadly keep missing because it starts at midnight in Manhattan. NYC is not train-friendly for us Jersey folks. This week he decided to treat his fans to a one-off secret show in his tiny apartment in Queens. Chris Twittered the news and the event sold out in minutes. Not one to let his fans down, Chris crammed upwards of 60 people into his living room and shocked everyone by bringing in Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers as the special guest. Like I said, people—comedic gold. I got to take the still production shots in the back of the cramped room. Thank goodness I brought a wide angle lens, because there wasn’t room to breathe. I was only able to shoot during moments of laughter so as not to peeve the video crew. Luckily there was plenty of laughs. If you ever get a chance to see Chris Gethard live, do it. His shows are a blast and regularly sell out. You won’t regret it.
Here are a few shots from Saturday’s show.
