Gallery: 50 First Jokes at 92Y Tribeca

Once again, I had the pleasure to shoot 50 First Jokes, brainchild of Claudia Cogen, John F. O’Donnell and Jiwon Li (she is not currently performing stand-up). The concept is that the 50+ performers tell the first joke that they have written in the new year. Since this happens only a few days in there is little time for the comics to come up with something. This is a favorite of mine as I see both old-timers and new-comers begin their process of working with new material – some of these first jokes will no doubt grow into great ones.
