Aziz's NYC favorites

"My friend Hannibal Buress hosts [Comedy at KFBK] on Sundays at the Knitting Factory (361 Metropolitan Ave at Havemeyer St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 347-529-6696,; Sun 9pm; free). Comedy Cellar (117 MacDougal St between Bleecker and W 3rd Sts; 212-254-3480, is a good club. I dropped in to work on new material the other night, and Seinfeld and Chris Rock dropped in too."

"I sometimes volunteer at 826NYC (372 Fifth Ave between 5th and 6th Sts, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-499-9884, and help kids with math. It's fun to just hang out with them."

"If you like suits, there's a place called Mr. Ned (137 Fifth Ave between 20th and 21st Sts; 212-924-5042, They do custom clothes, and it's not super expensive—it's not $100 or anything, but you can get a [bespoke] suit. Also, Baby Armani has some cool stuff, if you're a baby and you're reading this issue."

"I went to the Cattelan exhibit at the Guggenheim (1071 Fifth Ave at 89th St; 212-423-3500, with everything hanging from the ceiling, and it was a great."
