See Dave Attell or D.L. Hughley… for FREE

Dave Attell and D.L. Hughley are each taping HBO specials at the Lincoln Theater next weekend- Attell on Friday, June 1 and Hughley on Sunday, June 3rd. The production company is looking for audience members for both, and the tickets are FREE. The catch is, you have to win the ticket lottery to get them. How do you enter the ticket lottery? I’m so glad you asked, because I’ve got the scoop.

Also, if you managed to read this far, you should probably know that SOMETIMES, when a big comedy name is doing a taping, the comedian will do an unannounced “warm-up” show at a local comedy club a night or two before the taping, usually as a surprise after a local headliner. Sometimes. Not always. But it’s a great reason to check out the local talent when the big names are going to be in town. Just sayin’.
