TONIGHT Transit Stories is BACK with new sketches!

Millions of people take public transportation to different places every day. Unfortunately, the most popular destination is Crazytown. Transit Stories is the sketch show you’ve experienced during that hellish commute home, while taking that plane across country or that time you just wanted to ride your bike to get some exercise, but were suddenly sucked into the middle of a real life BMX Bandits scenario sans Nicole Kidman. 

Written and produced by Michelle Francesca Thomas

ComedyBarNYC is coming soon!  

Here are some pictures of the construction that’s been underway!

The ComedyBarNYC made it through Hurricane Sandy and is hopefully set to open November 2012!

It will be a comedy oasis - a bar, coffee shop, comedy community center for all comedians before and after shows and classes right in the heart of midtown.  Come relax with other like-minded comedy folks!

Dear PITizens and PIT Show Producers:

We’re canceling all programming for tonight (TUES, OCT 30).

Check The PIT web site for future scheduling, but the rule of thumb is this: If the MTA is shut down, we’ll be closed.

thanks
