I love this crowd

David Byrne brings an intimate experience to passersby with a series of one-liner jokes by famed Catskill comedians such as Henny Youngman, Mort Sahl, and Alan King. The witticisms, interspersed with laughter and applause, will sound episodically from speakers within the Winter Garden's palm trees. Drawn to the trees by the faint sounds of birds, listeners will partake in a hilarious, classic and globally influential New York tradition.
