The party has been supersized!

The weekly comedy show “Butterboy,” at Littlefield in Gownus, added a new after party last week called “Butterboy After Hours” at nearby bar Parklife. The stand-up show, hosted by comedians Aparna Nancherla, Maeve Higgins, and Jo Firestone, has developed a loyal following over the last year, and owners saw that the crowd wanted to keep the pawrty going after the last laugh. Their neighboring bar Parklife — which also offers food and hot drinks — seemed like the perfect solution, said a rep for the venues.

“We noticed comedians and fans enjoy hanging out after the show,” said Caitlin Gillette. “We wanted to introduce longtime Littlefield fans to our new space Parklife, and this seemed like a good fit.”

Parklife, just one block away, serves fresh tacos and burritos, and has a substantial outdoor area, which has recently been updated so that Butterboy visitors can keep warm.

“We’ve winterized part of the outdoor space with heaters to keep patrons cozy during the colder months,” said Gillette.

DJ Donwill, who provides music for “Butterboy,” will also spin tunes at the after party, and the weekly after party will feature food and drink specials.

“Butterboy” at Littlefield (635 Sackett St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, Mondays at 8 pm. $10 ($8 in advance).

“Butterboy After Hours” at Parklife (636 Degraw St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, Mondays; 10–11:30 pm. Free.
