New York City is the home of the most talented people on Earth, as we know! Caveat presents a fantastic show named “Why Your Train is F*cked: A love/hate show about the history of the MTA”.
Yes! Every day there is something new happening in New York City, and it pretty hard to keep track of it all! We always enjoy what Caveat has going on and they’ve got a pretty loyal audience coming back for more and more!
But, who are these guys? As they explain:
“CAVEAT is New York’s newest speakeasy stage for playful, intelligent nightlife. Join us for drinks and go home smarter.”
“Our core creative team includes a recovering theoretical physicist, a renegade museum tour guide, and a one-time Moth StorySlam champion. That love for science and unconventional storytelling is at the heart of Caveat’s booking philosophy: we regularly host comedy, science talks, storytelling, concerts, trivia competitions, live recorded podcasts, and special events that defy description… you’ll have to come experience them for yourself!”
The tickets for their shows range from $10 – $20, and you’ll be sure to go home with a huge bunch of new knowledge to share!
Their cabaret-style tables are pretty awesome and they sit up to 120 guests, and be ready for a full house!
The best explanation they give for what to expect, décor-wise, is “Harvard Club meets CBGB“!
OBS: CBGB is a former rock club in the East Village, that all famous bands played back in the 70’s and 80’s. Today the place is the home for John Varvatos’ store. But, lucky us, they still preserved the original walls with stickers, flyers, pictures with autographs…
You know when your train is f*cked – this is the show that tells you WHY.
Get on board for a deep dive into the history of the MTA. Whether you love it, hate it, or want to compose more informed rage-tweets about it during your next 20 minute delay – they’ve got you covered.
Your hosts Meg Pierson (TEDx, Alchemy Comedy) and Justin Williams (City College, SirusXM), along with a mysterious anonymous ghostwriter, will conduct the show through the twists and turns of history.
They’ll reveal unbelievable stories, subway life-hacks, and truly upsetting details about our subway system.
Episode 1: Bedlam on Wheels – MTA Origins
For their first show, they’re going WAY back, to the dirty 1830’s.
They’ll track the shady sh*t going down in NYC politics that kept a 19th century Elon Musk from making a subway happen. Also, get real about the pros and cons of horse-drawn mass transit. And, learn all about the mysterious Subway Microbe that New Yorkers worried would kill them all.
Tickets: $15 in advance, $18 at the door
Note: This is a mixed seated and standing venue. Arrive early for the best seats in the house!

If you’re wondering where to eat before the show, you might want to enjoy another “behind the scenes” spot just a few blocks from Caveat.
Kuma Inn is hidden behind a weird, tiny door on Ludlow Street and serves a super traditional Thai menu!
