Comedians’ Power Hour, Huron Club at SoHo Playhouse, 15 Vandam St, 9pm

Comedians’ Power Hour is a touring comedy show that pits two comedians in head-to-head competition telling jokes and taking shots of beer on an inebriated journey to be crowned Power Hour Champion. Comics will trade off doing two-minute sets of stand-up all while taking 2oz. shots of beer between each set. As the hour goes on, hosts throw out challenges that play into the comics’ intoxication levels like doing two minutes of another comics’ material or giving a drunken Best Man Speech. This month’s Comedians Power Hour features a duel between Jenn Wehrung and Kristin Seltman. Free.
