The Cocky Asians Comedy Tour - Washington DC!

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.

    It was definitely a unique show - different from typical comedians as most of the audience can relate (being Asian or familiar with its culture). Kudos to Peter for organizing it and getting us reserved seats...so VIP style! : )

    Hi all

    I'm thinking of reserving a table at cost, at the park. If i can get at least 15 people to go in it with me, it would be about 15 $ each drink included. Let me know ifyou are game :)

    I'll try to get feedback on the venueto let you know if they crank the A/C. I will designate our rows with ribbons or be have some one escort you to your seats;)

    Weather.com says "showers ending by midday. Highs in the low 60s and lows in the low 40s." 30% chance of precipitation. So we should be good! : )

    March 10, 2011

  • Pete A

    Just added map of the location.

    If you're planning to drive there, here's one parking tool you could use:
    1) Go to http://washingtondc.bestparking...­
    2) Select Daily
    3) Select "By Address"
    4) Type in "701 Pennsylvania Ave NW" and hit Search
    5) Enter date/time for arrival/departure and hit "Calculate Rates"
    6) You may find reasonably priced garages within couple blocks. Move mouse pointer over location for popup of garage's info (address, operating hours, etc.)

    I work directly with the group sponsoring the event. I have left a message to assist you Pete. If I dont get a call by COB, I will call him.

    March 3, 2011

  • Pete A

    Rebecca, I'm assuming he'll get back to me on a specific section day before or last minute. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Ty you everyone I appreciatethis turn out!! You guys rock!

    March 3, 2011

  • Rebecca

    Did he say what section? I can hold the sign 6-6:30 you want help. First time going to a comedy show! Exciting!

    March 3, 2011

  • Pete A

    Rebecca & Kia, I exchanged FB messages with one of the coordinators and he said seats are 1st come, 1st served. He also said he can try to space off a section if I let him know how many people I'm expecting to bring. I'll tell him 30 for now and update him again few days earlier.

    March 3, 2011

  • Rebecca

    Good to know - thanks! I just e-mailed the host - maybe I'll get a response.

    March 2, 2011

  • Kia Yun

    My ticket doesn't have a specific seat listed. I'm guessing it's first come, first pick.

    March 2, 2011

  • Rebecca

    Does anyone know if there are assigned seating? It wouldn't be fun sitting by myself.
