The Stand NYC Summer Pop-Up Series expands to Brooklyn as we present Fat Baby @ The Kniting Factory!

Fat Baby is the best live comedy show in New York City for a reason; it's the most fun. It's a show people are excited to watch that comedians are excited to perform on. Mix-in a satirical game show and a weird, fun musical performance by up and coming talent and you get a comedy experience second to none. Fat Baby combines the respective genres creating a fun, interactive Standup show with a fresh twist. Fat Baby is a wild, unpredictable thrill for both the audience and the comics!

Glamorous, impossibly prolific and aggressively funny, Molly Austin stands at the vanguard of a new generation of female stand-up superheroes. For this special showcase, the TruTV darling assembles an Avengers-level lineup of her fiercest buddies to join her on stage—Christi Chiello, Sydnee Washington and Marie Faustin. Until they start manufacturing action figures of these all-stars, you’re going to have to see them live—and you better believe they’ll be in their prime for this epic night.
