UPDATE #4: Hate to break it out to you guys, but event coordinators said they can't section off seats exclusively for us afterall. As an alternative, I'll have an usher/greeter there with a headband on. That way, you can at least see who else is from our group. See you tonight, guys.
UPDATE #3: Thanks for saying so in your RSVP comments if you bought tix. For those who didn't yet, you got grace period until 3pm Friday to say so until I reconfirm final head count to the event staff. Otherwise, sitting next to us can't be guaranteed. Looking forward to seeing you guys there.
UPDATE #2b: "Just Announced! AFTERPARTIES are happening both nights - Hang out with the Comedians, party and get your groove on. Free Admission if you buy tickets to the Comedy Show. FRIDAY @ Josephine's and SATURDAY @ The PARK. Details coming soon!! Thanks to Jimmy and Julie!"
UPDATE #2a: Guys, help me out here. Coordinators need final head count by Friday morning of those who already paid so they can reserve the right number of seats for us. If done so, say something like "Ticket bought" or "[this #] of tickets bought". For those who already said so, thanks. If any of you is planning to go to the Friday one, also mention that since they need final head count for that by Thursday morning. Help them to help you. Thanks.
UPDATE #1: I raised the guest limit to 5. Let me know if you're confidently planning to bring more than that many guests. Also, we're making this a joint event with the other Meetup group "NOVA Korean Language Exchange".
Are you ready to laugh? I SAID ARE YOU READY TO LAUGH? Hurry and get your ticket online for $15 at http://cockyasianscomedydc.eventbrite.com/ or $20 at the door. If this tour sold out before, don't be surprised if same goes here for DC. More details here on Facebook.
