First Comes Love: Carnival Edition

  • The Bell House 149 7th Street Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)


Adult film scripts from Craigslist, acted out LIVE on stage by comedians and the like. In an (admittedly) drunken state, Brooklyn comedian Kyle Ayers placed an ad on Craigslist, claiming to be the CEO/Producer of a major adult film company. He asked for 3-4 page porn scripts from aspiring adult film writers. What he didn’t expect, was to get over 1,000 responses in one week, which he now has comedians and friends act out verbatim on stage, for better or for worse. More funny and absurd than sexual or weird, past guests include Ron Jeremy (yeah, that guy), Sasheer Zamata, Emily Heller, Dan St. Germain, Nick Vatterott, Matteo Lane, and more. The show has been featured in the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, RIOT LA, SF Sketchfest, and weird places all over this wonderfully lonely country.
