Friends for Now

Sunday May 21 2017 • 2:00pm - 3:30pm ET
In-person event


Grab your kids and walk don’t run (because running is dangerous) to The Greene Space for an afternoon of thrills and laughs as two teams of friends battle it out in Friends for Now, a kid’s game show!

Comedian Jo Firestone leads contestants through a series of games that are creative, musical, fast-paced and wacky in this podcast pilot for WNYC Studios! The friends that win the first round then become foes and compete against each other in an all-holds-barred fight to the finish. 

Jo is joined by musical sidekick Tommy McNamara, sound effects artist extraordinaire Fred Newman, WNYC archivist Andy Lanset and The Judge (voiced by Avital Isaacs), who always gets the last word!

Friends for Now is fun for all ages from 6 to 64 (some games not appropriate for 65-year-olds without proper supervision)! 


→ Tickets also available for Sat, May 20
