B.J. Novak in “Fifty First Jokes” January 6

The Office’s B.J. Novak appears live in “Fifty First Jokes” at the Zephyr Theatre in West Hollywood this Thursday, January 6.

“Fifty of LA’s best comedians will tell the first new jokes they have written for the new year! Five years ago, Claudia Cogan, John F. O’Donnell and Jiwon Lee came up with the idea for Fifty First Jokes, and the show played to a sold out crowd in New York City. The popular annual NYC comedy tradition is back again this year with shows in both New York and LA.”

B.J. Novak on ‘Conan’

The Office’s B.J. Novak visited ‘Conan’ last night and chatted about “Night of Too Many Stars,” George Clooney, Baker Smurf, and the origin of the joke “why is 6 afraid of 7?”

I always thought celebs had to write down the credit card information, too!
