Around NYC Today (1/5) Twelfth Night, Jackknife Comedy


Astronaut Training: a Space Camp game show for lunatics, Caveat, 21 A Clinton St – LES, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Space exploration crash course meets 90’s Nickelodeon game show. Hosts Corinne Caputo (author of How To Success) and Loren Grush (Space Reporter at The Verge) will put real scientists and real comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training to see who will “win” a “trip to Mars.” The challenges simulate those actually done by astronauts-in-training, as if they were made by a gazillionaire with too much time on their hands. Only one flight crew can emerge. $10.
