Rififi Closes

Rififi, the alternative comedy hotspot in the East Village had its final show last night, and I happened to be around to catch it after its closing was announced a mere 24 hours before, it seems. Very fun to see comedians and regulars converge for one last hurrah at the favorite hangout - even though it was only my second time there. Highlights included Eugene Mirman as John McCain and shouting requests to Jon Glaser, John Mulaney trying out some new jokes and a Star Wars Pez dispenser lip-sync to Les Miserables. Chewbacca's head partially detached.

It was great to maybe perhaps be a little part of something that might possibly go down as something somewhat big. Here's hoping another good indie room opens in NY.
