Mustache parties are back
If there was a high-school reunion for class clowns, it would be the All Sketch Comedy Festival.
If laughter is the best medicine, then three days of crazy antics by comedians from Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento is the Red Cross.
The San Francisco-based group Things We Made displays a ton of videos on their Web site, and their antics would have a normal person committed. But that’s the draw: These aren’t normal people. They’re comedians. They’re mad, and are going to make you mad with laughter. Or hopefully.
March is also the month of the ’stache—facial hair traditionally reserved for 14-year-old boys showing off peach fuzz, middle-aged creeps stuck in 1984 or the manliest of men (read: Tom Selleck).
When Brad Pitt’s ’stache graced the cover of Rolling Stone in December, you knew it would be making a comeback.
And now it has: Anthony’s Barbershop in Midtown is hoping to start a hairy-lip revolution with Mustache March, complete with prizes for Best Overall Mustache, People’s Choice, and the Dirtylip Award, for those poor fellows who can’t grow one.
It’s time: revolución del bigote!
