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.

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

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.

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!)
