#HelpLiza: A Benefit Show For Comedian Liza Dye
When: Thursday, March 27, 8pm
Where: Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street
What: New York City comedian Liza Dye is in pretty good spirits considering she was hit by a subway in February, and remains in the hospital due to her injuries, and has no health insurance. Maybe it’s because she has comedian friends nice enough to put together this benefit to help with her medical expenses — 100% of the proceeds from the show will go to directly to her hospital bills. Can’t make the show? Make a donation online.
How much: $15, available in advance

When: Thursday, March 27, 9pm
Where: Brooklyn Colony, 274 4th Avenue
What: You know you’ve got a song in your heart just aching to get out, perhaps with a little liquid confidence (and a couple bites from the late night menu might not hurt, either).
How much: Free!

Two-Book Minimum
When: Friday, March 28, 9:30pm
Where: Community Bookstore, 143 7th Avenue
What: Writer-comedians  Dan Wilbur and Ross Hyzer host Sean Donnelly, Aparna Nancherla, Giulia Rozzi, and Josh Gondelman for a night of stand-up, stories, and a few drunken ramblings about books.
How much: Free!

Electronics Recycling
When: Saturday, March 29, 10mm-4pm
