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.

This episode is WHAT HAPPENED by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Listen and laugh with us, or Blythe sobbing while reading this book on a plane will be all for naught!

We had some sizzling possibly political comedy by:
Dylan Marron (Conversations With People Who Hate Me)
Halcyon Person (Nickelodeon)
Steven Markow (New Yorker, Turner Masters Memory Hospital)
Catherine Cohen as Hillary

According to the Pulitzer website, anyone can nominate anything for a Pulitzer Prize, and Pulitzer Surprises takes advantage of that horrible idea. Eliza Cossio (The Daily Show) and Caroline Schaper (Full Frontal, Letterman) have their favorite comedians perform their submission for a Pulitzer. Then they interview a real-life Pulitzer Prize winner who has actually done something good. At the end of the show the audience will cast their vote on who deserves a Pulitzer, and then it will really be submitted for a Pulitzer Prize. That winner walks away a “Pulitzer Prize Entrant.” Show taped monthly at Union Hall and now CAVEAT.

This month Eliza Cossio and Caroline Schaper welcome hopefuls Roy Wood Jr., Conner O’Malley, Catherine Cohen, Carmen Christopher, and interview Dan Fagin about his real-life Pulitzer for Tom’s River.

We don’t mean to spook you but someday Blythe is going to die. What is going to happen to her? We will tell you in excruciating detail and Madelyn’s not going to like it. Luckily, Madelyn’s mom didn’t ever give her permission to die so she can’t. They talk to Order of the Good Death member, author, and alive ghost Bess Lovejoy. We got some cool ass witches on the docket scamming us with tricks, Jo Firestone, Josh Gondelman, and Friends Who Folk. (Bowen Yang’s motivational dance to fend off rigor mortis was unfortunately too hot to share!)

Hosted by Blythe Roberson, Madelyn Freed
