I’m gonna use this space to say that Sara Barron is a delight. She’s written a new book, which you can hear her read from at the next REAL CHARACTERS on April 9 at 7pm at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo.
(The sentence diagram for that last sentence is just a curlycue pointing towards an English teacher shaking her head.)
Upcoming REAL CHARACTERS guest Teddy Wayne writes regularly for McSweeneys and The New Yorker’s Shouts & Murmurs. Here’s one of his most recent pieces titled The Heterosexual Agenda. Enjoy!
Oh, and also come see Teddy read at the next REAL CHARACTERS on April 9 at 7pm at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo.
Upcoming REAL CHARACTERS guest Aaron Wolfe recently co-wrote the short film Record/Play which went on to Sundance, scores of festivals, The New York Times Indie Online Film Fest, and was short-listed for an Oscar nomination. Now, it’s being developed as a feature-length film for Focus Features. C’mon, that’s
pretty super impressive.
See Aaron tell a story April 9 at 7pm at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo.
Here’s upcoming REAL CHARACTERS guest Julia Wiedeman telling a terrific story at RISK! We’re very excited to have her at our next show on April 9 at 7pm at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo.
You should come. I mean, c’mon, you know you should come to this show, right?
Listen, if you are a fan of REAL CHARACTERS (and of course you are; it’s the best), you should check out a terrific humor/debate series called Uptown Showdown at Symphony Space on the Upper West Side. It has featured a ton of past REAL CHARACTERS performers, including in this next one on Tuesday debating the topic Are We Getting Dumber or Smarter? This isn’t like a sponsored post or anything. I just like the folks behind this show a lot.
If you missed Mike Albo’s excerpt from his stage show, The Junket, at our December Real Characters, you are in luck. It has been extended at Dixon Place. Honestly, multiple audience members came up after our show at Cornelia Street Cafe asking where they could see more of Mike. The New Yorker seems to be a fan, too.
