Paranoia Man In A Rat Fink Room opened in tandem with the 13th annual New York Comedy Festival, which takes place annually during the first week of November at venues throughout New York City. As part of a special week-long preview, Caroline Hirsch, founder and owner of the New York Comedy Festival and Carolines on Broadway, curated comedic programming inside the installation, bringing to the space a functioning nightclub and entertainment venue complete with live stand-up performances.
Live Preview Performances: Each night, several comedians from the NYCF performed a stand-up routine within the installation. The events started with a preview of the installation, followed at 7:30 by stand-up performances.
