Tonight I'll be hosting The Moth's StorySLAM at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe., where audience members sign up to tell five-minute stories in a delightful environment, with drinks and tomfoolery. Full details on how it all happens are here:
The Nuyorican is at 236 East 3rd Street, between Avenues B & C. Signup is at 7, the show starts at 7:30 and tickets are $6.
Tomorrow (Wednesday the 17th) I'll be performing at the outstanding series HOW TO KICK PEOPLE in an evening of reading, laughing, hurting and forgiving where I'll be joined by the incomparable Jonathan Ames and a cast of thousands. The provocative theme? "I AM NOT A MISTAKE!" HTKP happens at Under St. Marks at 94 St. Marks Street between 1st and A, the show begins at 8 and the tickets are only $7.
Finally, on Monday the 22nd I'll be in the Fez Reading Series, where this month is A Tribute to Philip Roth. Expect a great deal of sex, anxiety, death, anxiety and masturbation in the face of tremendous evil. My favorite highbrow burlesque artist and friend Julie Atlas Muz will end the evening with something unexpected and surprising. Fez is at 380 Lafayette Street at Great Jones, the show starts at 7:30 and tickets are $10 at the door.
