Caveat (Host organization for MED NYC)

Streamed live – March 15, 2020

While Caveat is closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19 we’ll be livestreaming shows! To kick it off: the doctors will be doing a COVID-19 livestream Q&A: answering questions, telling stories from the ER, and giving you the info you need as this situation gets crazy!

Medicine is expensive. Insurance is a disaster. Stigma, discrimination, and social exclusion prevent folks from getting the care they need. And to top it all off, the human body is just plain horrifying!!

Andres Mallipudi and Darien Sutton know these facts better than anyone. As real-life ER doctors, they work with patients every day whose access to treatment is limited by cost-cutters, middlemen, and a culture in denial about the physical and emotional vulnerabilities we all share. They also present with symptoms of chronic oversharing—a malady for which leading researchers suggest there is no cure.

Thankfully for us, they’ve agreed to weave their gnarliest and funniest professional stories into comedy gold in Doctors Without Boundaries.


Going crazy yet? Craving information, but starting to feel desperate to receive it in a non-depressing way? Worried about the state of art and intelligent discussion in the time of social distancing? We got you.

Beginning this week, your favorite nerdy basement bar will host livestreams 5 nights a week with extra-special online editions of our shows. Medical advice without any bullsh*t! Wrestlemania-style debates over different scientific principles (where you can chime in)! Political science with that ever-needed dash of showmanship! If it’s smart and it’s weird and it’s entertaining, you know we’re gonna give it to you.

It’s a weird time and it may only get weirder. Hopefully some good old fashioned intelligent nightlife can help get you through it – right from the safety of your home.

And if you’d like to contribute to the artists and keeping the venue alive, here’s a link where you can do that! We’ll split whatever comes in between making sure Caveat stays functioning and the artists on stage.

Wash your hands and keep calm: Caveat is here to keep our community comforted and our creators working.
