This show was so good that after this show a bunch of Sloan Kettering administrators asked for my autograph. We delighted them and probably the audience with dreadful facts about CANCER. Did you know that the doctors that invented chemotherapy tried to poison their young patients with anything they could think of including mustard gas? Did you want to know? Sachi Ezura and John Reynolds yummed our yucks, too.
Madelyn Freed and Blythe Roberson host.

Join comedian and New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake and guest co-hosts as they talk to the funniest and most interesting people around about what messed up things go through their heads at night. We’ll poke around looking for deeper meaning behind that dream where you’re still in high school somehow even though you know you graduated years ago and oh god, you’ve been blowing off first period all semester – and then Emily will present each guest with artwork based on their worst nightmare, suitable for framing or ritual burning!

Book Club is a comedy variety show where hosts Colin Stokes and Blythe Roberson (The New Yorker, The Onion), along with some of NYC’s best comedians, read the books so you don’t have to. Held monthly at Union Hall.
Book Club decides to take it easy for once, so we read a children’s book: Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Diary. Discussion topics include: how rich is Nancy? Is Ned actually hot? And why the hell is everyone so mean to Bess?
With: Jen Spyra, Nore Davis, Joe Zimmerman, Rebecca O’Neal and your lovely hosts Colin Stokes and Blythe Roberson
Live sound and recording by Harry Scott. Produced and edited by Shannon Manning.
Recorded live January 27, 2018 at Union Hall.

This month we’re psychologists. And you have to pay us $225/hr to be told that you’ll swim faster if you tell yourself you’re terrific. So pony up, kiddo. Kings and queens of Brooklyn Mitra Jouhari, Alex Watt, and Zach Zimmerman floor us with giggling.
Hosted by Blythe Roberson, Madelyn Freed
