Weekend Agenda

Events to catch this weekend, 11/9 to 11/12.


Do you believe in magic?   

1. There’s a new zany comedy night in town, and it begins Thursday night at Joe’s Pub. The first Champagne Jerry’s Clubhouse hosted by Neal Medlyn (aka Champagne Jerry), is jam packed with talent including Bridgett Everett, actor Cole Escola, and comedian Janelle James.

2. And this Sunday concludes the annual New York Comedy Festival. This weekend see a taping of the podcast How Did This Get Made at Town Hall, Nick Offerman at the Beacon Theater, a taping of 2 Dope Queens at the Bell House, Kurt Braunohler and Friends at Littlefield and much more. Discover something new!

3. This weekend the Museum of the Moving Image celebrates the Indian independent film landscape with their India Kaleidoscope film festival.

4. And through November 16 DOC NYC tells us true stories through documentary storytelling at Cinepolis, SVA Theater, and the IFC Center.

5. Performer, poet, and storyteller Edgar Oliver's New York Trilogy runs through November 18 at Axis Theatre Company. This weekend’s monologue is 2014’s "In the Park," about a stroll in Prospect Park and meandering thoughts of loves past.

6. While the comic double bill of "Marcel" and "The Art of Laughter" at Theater for a New Audience first makes you laugh with slapstick, then dissects the reasons we find things humorous (it's lighter than it sounds).

7. On Sunday at St. Mark’s Church Downtown Music Productions presents Women at Work, a classical music program of women composers, including Parisian prodigy Lili Boulanger and English composer and actress Madeleine Dring.

8. And over at Christie’s Rockefeller Center showroom is probably the only opportunity you’ll have to see Leonardo Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi, one of only 20 paintings made by the polymath, before it crosses the auction block on November 15.

9. The salve for chilly weather is a candle-lit mentalist show and dinner at the McKittrick Hotel. " At the Illusionist’s Table" features magic man Scott Silven in an intimate dinner party weaving illusion, childhood memories, and whiskey. Shows run through January 14, but tickets are going fast.

10. And this Saturday salute all who serve and have served at the Veterans Day Parade, beginning at 11:15 a.m., north from Fifth Avenue and 26th street. This year’s Grand Marshal is U.S. Air Force veteran Buzz Aldrin, which is out of this world. Get there early for the opening ceremony, and happy weekend!
