Parlour Car ~ July 27th, 2017 ~ Final Show at Bar DeVille

Last Parlour Car
Alas, tonight brings us the final Parlour Car at Bar DeVille.  To say that it’s been an extraordinary four and a half years would be an egregious understatement.  We cannot begin to express our profound gratitude to the entire staff of Bar DeVille, all the comedians, and the consistently amazing audiences who came to hang and, of course, brought best friends.  Every person that liked a show, told a pal or performed a set helped mold Parlour Car into a truly special thing, so to all of you we say thank you, thank you, thank you for helping co-create such a wonderful weekly party of friends.  We’re committed to finding a new home for ol’ P.Car, so stay tuned for fun-cool-hot-slick details.  But for tonight, let’s all hang at Bar DeVille one last time and have a goddamned hoot.  We’ve invited a whole bunch of our favorite comedian pals to come do sets, and things will likely get real silly.  So come hang.  Let’s have a time.  We love you.  And oh, do bring some best friends.
9pm. Free. Bar DeVille.
