Stefon's Guide To NYC's Hottest Clubs Gets Illustrated

by Chelsea Burcz · February 23, 2012

    For years now, Saturday Night Live's beloved character of Stefon, played by Bill Hader, has been a fan favorite. The giggly, bashful club kid can usually be found on Weekend Update describing to Seth Meyers the hottest (and most hilariously ridiculous) nightclubs in NYC. Spiltsider has curated a selection of illustrated versions of the local haunts of Stefon, paired with transcripts of how he describes these places. Check out a few of our favorite below!

    "New York’s hottest club is Wesh. Nine-year-old Tokyo pimp Ichiaku Guru is back with an all-new hot spot that answers the question What?!? This place has everything: trance, stilts, throw-up music, an albino that looks like Susan Powder, Teddy Graham people...It’s the thing, like when a guy has stumpy arms, but with the belly."

    "New York’s hottest club is Slash. This place has everything: glass, steam, bear traps, and just when you think the fun is over, knock knock who’s there? It’s Black George Washington! All that, and a party room filled with human bathmats...It’s that thing like when midgets have dreadlocks and they lay faced down on the floor."

    'New York’s hottest club is Taste. Nightlife designer Tranny Griffith is back with an all-new club that answers the question Huh?!? Don’t look for a bouncer – there isn’t one. Instead the door’s guarded by ten jacked homeless guys in old-fashioned bathing suits. And inside it's just sick: ice sculptures, winos, Germufs – German smurfs – a Teddy Ruxin wearing mascara, an old lady wearing Kid 'N Play hair, and none other than DJ Baby Bok Choy...He’s a giant 300-pound Chinese baby who wears tinted aviator glasses and he spins records with his little ravioli hands.'

    '"If you're ordinary or love salt, I've got just the spot for you. New York's hottest holiday club is BAAAAAAA-BAANAM. Opened and condemned in 1904, this seasonal psycho ward is the creation of Hanukkah cartoon character Menorah the Explorer, and this place has everything: Kiwis, Spud Webb, Clio Awards, some guy's mom, plus a special showing of the African holiday classic A Fish Called Kwanza. Look who just walked in — it’s a lady who works at CVS, but do not bother her because she is on break. And all the proceeds go to charity — flaccid outreach group Doctors Without Boners."
