JACKKNIFE COMEDY is a rad monthly stand up show in New York City, hosted and produced by two dummies from Iowa, Gideon Hambright and Patrick Hastie

The long-running JACKKNIFE COMEDY started in Brooklyn in 2014 and has been featured in dozens of comedy festivals all around the country, and a special Los Angeles show was done at the famed Meltdown Comics in 2017.

Lineups are subject to change, but will always be good.

His stage presence and person is as wild, wacky, and friendly as his jokes are. He’s the co-host and producer of Jackknife Comedy and House of Bricks. Gideon has been featured in the Charm City Comedy Festival, Hudson Valley Comedy Festival and the Cinder Block Comedy Festival.
