For his latest hilariously awesome video, NYC comedian Mark Malkoff decided to give out free cab rides to New Yorkers for 14 hours. He spent the day driving around NYC picking people up and dropping them off when they Tweeted or Facebook messaged him for rides. At the end of 14 hours, Mark had racked up a $486.10 tab, had travelled 60.2 miles with New York cab driver Sean Kean, and had a ton of amazing video footage to show for his work.
Mark said,”With the current state of the economy, I was excited to be able to offer this free gift to my fellow New Yorkers.” And he didn’t only offer rides—he offered tons of fun along the way! Mark told me via email that, “Along the way we did fun stuff that’s never been done in a cab before including filling the entire cab with popcorn and plastering Tony Danza’s face all over the cab.”
Mark gave free rides from 7:30 AM until 9:30 PM in both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Check out the video below, which was posted to Mark’s My Damn Channel and then let us know what you think about the14-hour cab-stravaganza!
