LIVE COMEDY SPECIAL TAPING 
THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 8PM
FLOP HOUSE COMEDY CLUB, BROOKLYN


WHO: Laura Merli, NYC-based standup, actress, and writer with over 2 million likes on TikTok, is recording her debut comedy special in front of a live audience at the Flop House Comedy Club.

WHAT: After cutting her teeth for 8 years in the indie comedy scene, Laura Merli is ready to record her first comedy special! Laura specializes in set-up/punch-line jokes, and one-liners rather than storytelling. Merli admires and is influenced by Mitch Hedberg and Maria Bamford. This style lets her cover A LOT of ground: drugs, sex, family/childhood, her ADHD/autism, and her dog. While the jokes emanate from a wide array of departure points, the humor centers around the awkwardness and absurdity of being alive. People describe Merli’s voice as deadpan but she promises she is being very expressive! 

WHERE: Flop House Comedy Club- 362 Grand Street Brooklyn, NY 11211

WHEN: April 18, 2024 at 8pm
