WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — They've been making New Yorkers laugh for two decades, and now it's time for them to take a bow.
The "The No Name" variety and comedy group, which has been performing since 1994, is marking its 20th birthday on Feb. 26 with a star-studded performance at the United Palace of Cultural Arts at 4140 Broadway.
Among the performers scheduled to take the stage are Wyatt Cenac ("The Daily Show"), Christian Finnegan (VH1's "The Best Week Ever" and "Chappelle's Show"), Ophira Eisenberg (NPR and WNYC's "Ask Me Another"), Leighann Lord (HBO's "The Original Def Comedy All-Star Jam") Liam McEaneaney (Comedy Central's "All Star Blend"), and Michele Carlo (The Moth.)
"So, maybe you're thinking we have as good a lineup as you've ever seen @ No Name. So, maybe I casually mention that we just added Wyatt Cenac to that lineup. Got your tickets yet?" organizer and emcee Eric Vetter wrote on Facebook.
"So excited to bring this party up to the Heights. Where else can you spend $15 to see a comedy show in an 84 year old, 3000+ seat vaudeville/movie house, with a lineup full of folks you'd normally throw down at least 30-40 bucks just to walk in a joint and see individually?? AND then they make you buy two watered-down, overpriced drinks! We give YOU two bands. Party time."
Musical acts include The Summer Replacements and The New York City Brass Brothers.
The show kicks off at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15 online and $25 at the door.
