Pickett’s Upstairs and Stand Up NY Join Forces for Dinner and a Show
Pickett’s is excited to announce that our friends from Manhattan’s legendary Stand Up NY comedy club will be hosting a show at Pickett’s Upstairs on Thursday, March 3. Stand Up New York, one of the country’s premier comedy clubs, is known for giving a stage to emerging stars like Chris Rock and Amy Schumer and continues to be a breeding ground of up-and-coming comedic talent. A rollicking show, plus a three-course meal (and glass of vino) from Chef Rich Krug, all in our beautiful new upstairs dining room, is $95 per person. Dinner will start at 7, with the show to follow. It’s going to be an awesome evening and we hope you’ll join us!
A sneak peek at the line-up:
Ashley Austin Morris will host the show. In addition to being “house host” at Stand Up NY, She’s a regular performer at Gotham Comedy Club, West Side Comedy and Dangerfield’s. You may also recognize her from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife and Ugly Betty.
Jeff Arcuri has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Laughs! on Fox, SiriusXM, and a plethora of comedy festivals around the country. Jeff works as a regular at Zanies Comedy Clubs as well as The Laugh Factory and in clubs and colleges across the US.
Our headliner is Gianmarco Soresi, who made his television debut on CBS’s Blue Bloods playing Tom Selleck’s waiter, a role he prepared for by actually becoming a waiter for 12 years. Gianmarco won Amazon’s Comics Watching Comics Season 8, and also earned 1st place at the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival, Devil’s Cup Comedy Festival, Empire State Comedy Festival and Last Comic Standing at Mohegan Sun. His standup has been featured on Comedy Central, Real Housewives of New York, PBS’s Stories from the Stage and George Takei Presents. Look for him in the upcoming Billy Crystal/Tiffany Haddish movie “Here Today.”
