Monday January 31 is the winter edition of GET LIT - The reading series that does the impossible and entertains the audience.
"That is impossible," you say. "Readings suck eggs! I?d rather stay at the office and read old annual reports than sit through another literary wank-fest."
Have no fear. GET LIT features NYC?s best underground performers, comic writers, and professional weirdos for a show that?s 100% wank-free. Unless there?s smut. Hey, you never know.
Monday, January 31, 8PM
Hosted by Jennifer DeMeritt
at The People?s Improv Theater (aka the PIT)
154 West 29th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues)
