Comedy fans, add the third Tuesday of every month to your schedule.

A new monthly show is coming to Union Hall, hosted by Gabe Delahaye, of the pop culture website Videogum.

“All my friends are comedians and they all have shows of their own, and I got jealous,” said Delahaye, who launches the Mr. Coconuts Comedy Show on May 24 at the Park Slope bar.

At his inaugural show, Delahaye will be joined by Jenny Slate, former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and host of “Big Terrific” at Cameo Gallery in Williamsburg; Joe Mande, the man behind the blog, Look at this F–ing Hipster; and Larry Murphy, a regular on the Adult Swim show “Delocated.”

Now, as for that name?

“It was the second stupidest thing I could think of,” said Delahaye.

Mr. Coconuts Comedy Show at Union Hall [702 Union St. near Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400], May 24 at 8 pm. Tickets $5. For info, visit www.unionhallny.com.
