Michelle Wolf, crowned as one of “The Top 10 Funniest Women in NYC” by TimeOut New York, brings her unique comedy to The Bell House in Gowanus on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Wolf has quickly established herself as a major voice in the comedy world and is poised for a breakout year in 2018.

Currently, she is the host of her new weekly comedy-variety series The Break with Michelle Wolf, which streams on Netflix. Earlier this year, Wolf made headlines when she hosted the “most watched” White House Correspondent’s Dinner ever. In December 2017 Michelle’s first hour-long stand-up special Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady, premiered on HBO. The well-reviewed special, tackled a wide range of topics from her surprising thoughts on feminism, the environment and how nature is sexist to the mystery surrounding public bathrooms, why Hilary Clinton could not be a “nice lady” and more of life’s everyday absurdities.

Tickets $30

 

Prior to launching The Break, Wolf worked as an on-air contributor and writer for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and as a writing supervisor and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she also made her late-night television debut as a comic in July 2014. Michelle appeared regularly on the show in various bits and as the popular reccurring character she created, “Grown-Up Annie.”

Wolf also created and starred in two digital series, Now Hiring and Used People for Comedy Central and wrote for the 88th Academy Awards hosted by Chris Rock. Wolf was named to Vulture’s list of “50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015”. She was also named to Rolling Stone’s list of the 25 funniest people on Twitter right now (@michelleisawolf) and selected as one of the “New Faces of Comedy” for the 2014 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.

Wolf headlines comedy clubs and colleges all over the United States and has performed at a number of festivals including the Riot LA Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, Moontower, Bonnaroo, Just For Laughs Montreal, JFL 42 and the Dublin Comedy Festival. In 2016 she completed an incredibly successful first appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a sold out run of her debut hour-long stand-up show Michelle Wolf: So Brave. The critically acclaimed show, which earned her a nomination for the Best Newcomer Prize from the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, garnered numerous four-star reviews from top publications such as the Guardian, Herald and Scotsman.

 

In the Fall of 2008, a 1920's warehouse was converted into The Bell House. Called "a welcome oasis" by TimeOut, The Bell House is a magnificent two-room music and events venue located in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn.
