If you’re a fan of smart, independent comedians you may recognize the name Tell Your Friends! – a program started six years ago in a bar basement in New York’s Lower East Side. Presented and hosted by Liam McEnearney, Tell Your Friends! billed itself as a ‘workout comedy night’ for alternative hipster comics on the rise, and featured sets open to the public every Tuesday night. The Tell Your Friends! comedy night led to an independent film as well – Tell Your Friends – the Concert Film! which premiered at the SXSW festival in 2011. In the film, Liam McEnearney showed stage performances from the comedy night, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with comedians performing regularly for the show.
If you didn’t get a chance to see the film, the trailer is below. And the bad news is, if you never made it to the Tell Your Friends! comedy night, chances are slim that you'll get there, because it's ending in June. But on a positive note, McEnearney is presenting an annual event, the Spring Fling, at the Bell House in Brooklyn! The Bell House, located in the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn, has some indie street cred as well. While it's not a bar crawl destination, it is a great venue for events - music and comedy included. Alcohol is available at two separate bars, and every seat in the house has an unobstructed view of the ginormous stage. Which is good news, because the Spring Fling has a great lineup! Comedians featured at the Spring Fling will include Christian Finnegan, featured on VH1's Best Week Ever, Janeane Garfalo, Kristen Schaal (30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers), Mr. McEnearney himself, and musical guest Hand Job Academy.
