These comedians are feeling cocky!

A group of 50 comics will whip out their best dick jokes this month to raise cash for a gun control group, at a show with a name we cannot spell out in this newspaper. The comedian behind “C---- Against Glocks,” happening at Littlefield on March 28, said that he wanted to make use of an abundant resource that might otherwise go to waste.

“I don’t know why, but I tend to write a disproportionate amount of dick jokes,” said Matt Koff. “I want to use my dick jokes to help the world. I mean, they aren’t doing anything — like my dick itself. It’s just sitting there.”

Koff, who also writes for “The Daily Show,” sees the show as a way to stand firm for an important issue without being preachy.

“I wanted to do something that helps the problems without being sanctimoni­ous,” said Koff. “I wanted to do something helpful and stupid.”

Koff initially planned to include just 30 comedians, but the show’s producer, Cassie Grimaldi, convinced him to make the phallic show bigger and longer. There was some stiff competition, said Koff — every jokester in the city has a least one penile punchline on tap.

“If you’re looking for a comedian who has a dick joke and hates guns — that’s every comedian in New York,” he said.

So he and Grimaldi just chose their favorite comedians to join the “penises against pistols” event, while trying to be sure to have a diverse lineup.

“We were careful not to just have male comedians,” he said. “We want to have the female perspective on the dick.”

The list of “wangs against weapons” performers includes Janelle James, Josh Gondelman, Jo Firestone, and comedy music duo Reformed Whores, along with 45 others. Each comedian will get a minute or two to tell their schlong-centric routine.

All of the proceeds from “phalluses against firearms” ticket sales will go to Everytown for Gun Safety, a lobbying group for universal background checks.

“I’ve donated to them before,” said Koff. “They seem like a very direct, simple advocate for gun safety.”

“C---- Against Glocks” at Littlefield (635 Sackett St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, March 28 at 8 pm. $15 ($12 in advance).

Reasonable discourse

Benny from Sunset Park says:
I will boycott this comedian clown who uses political unrest to sell a few extra tickets for himself.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

Planes, cars, etc have been used in mass murders and I don't see anyone trying to ban them.

Get to the root of the problem with people and stop wasting our energy attacking legitimate gun rights for responsible people.

Homey from Crooklyn says:
One of the requisites to be a comedian nowadays
is to be a virtue signalling SJW assclown
