CBS/NY PRESENTS: Liam McEneaney's "Writings (with Music)"
at Mo Pitkins' House of Satisfaction
34 Avenue A @ 3rd Street
8:00pm - $6.00
Every musician secretly wants to be a comedian. All comedians have a secret yearning to play music. On Monday night, these worlds collide in a music/comedy experiment, as some of New York's best comedy writers read pieces, creating a rhythm that a jazz band will use to create a live, improvised musical background.
LIAM McENEANEY, who has been seen on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and VH1's "Best Week Ever." He spent two seasons as a writer for Comedy Central's "Stand-Up Nation w/ Greg Giraldo."
And featuring readings from:
TODD HANSON, who is the head writer for the popular satirical weekly The Onion, and is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller "Our Dumb Century."
AMANDA MELSON, who wrote for the Comedy Central shows "Stand Up Nation w/ Greg Giraldo" and the upcoming (hopefully) "Adult Content w/ Greg Giraldo" She is also a contributing writer for Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update."
CHRIS REGAN, winner of five Emmys as a writer for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and co-author of the New York Times bestseller, "America (The Book)." His website, www.mythstory.net, will be published as a book in 2007.
WENDY SPERO, a comedian who has appeared on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend." Her one-woman show, "Who's Your Daddy?" was greeted by ecstatic reviews from The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York. She is also the author of the LA Times-bestselling book "Microthrills: True Stories from a Life of Small Highs."
With live musical accompaniment from EVAN SILVERMAN'S JAZZHOLE. EVAN SILVERMAN is a professional musician who has toured all over the US, Canada, and Europe, opening for bands like Echo and the Bunnymen. He recently completed his Masters in jazz music.
