Did you know that vampires don't show up in photos? Well, last night's Pep Talk! Day-after-Halloween Bootacular wasn't really a comedy show; it was a test to see which of our friends are vampires. We're happy to announce that our friend group continues to be 100% vampire-free. Congratulations! These pictures by Jessica Xie are proof.
[vampire voice] Good evening guys and ghouls,
Pep Talk is back (from the dead!!) with a SPOOOOKY (belated) Halloween edition. We're coming straight from the aisles of Duane Reade's Day-After-Halloween sale and will have lots of VERY REASONABLY PRICED TREATS to share with you, our lovely audience/coven.
ALSO, we've got some creepy-crawly comedy! This month's KILLER (oooh! Killer! Scary!) lineup features:...
Sam & Bill
SEE YOU THERE! BOO!
- Ghost Kelsey and Goblin Reed
September's show is but a distant memory, but it lives on in our hearts (and our hard drives, thanks to these pix). Big thanks to Conner Ozer, Brandon Scott Wolf, Molly Brenner, and Steven Markow for hanging out with us on a Saturday night! Mark your Day Runner® Planner for the next show: Wednesday 11/1 @ 7pm! https://thepit-nyc.com/event/2017-11-01-pep-talk
PEP TALK! asks New York's bravest comedians to leave their comfort zones and to bring the audience with them. We've seen a comic make money like a stripper, heard confessions about working for Bill O'Rielly, and learned (from a song!) how to scam your Tinder date for free Burger King.
**This month's show features**
Brandon Scott Wolf (Weekend Update)...
Ana Fabrega (The Chris Gethard Show)
Steven Markow (The New Yorker)
Molly Brenner (Physically Bold)
And your hosts, Reed Kavner (the C train) and Kelsey Solywoda (Dunkin' Donuts)

Wow! The premiere edition of PEP TALK! was great! We learned about The Lizzie McGuire Movie, shitting while wearing a leash, and scamming your Tinder dates for free Burger King. But most importantly, we learned about ourselves. It was a journey and this is our scrapbook. Pretty pics by Jenny Regan & Jessica Xie
