How to Kick People is hiring. Must know excel. This month we're celebrating Q2 productivity, the Douglass account, March birthdays, revised sexual harassment policy, the art of the career-sabotaging "blind CC", and corporate right-sizing, with How to Kick People: Hawaiian Shirt Day.
It's something everyone can relate to. We all have jobs, and those of us who don't have jobs probably aren't going to spend the $8 they just earned selling blood just to watch a fun comedy reading show.
Join your middle-managers, Bob Powers & Todd Levin, and their independent consultants: David Rees (creator of the comic strip, Get Your War On); Chelsea Peretti (co-host of Variety Shac, and fresh from the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO); and Andy Borowitz. (creator of the Borowitz Report and contributor to Fired!, an anthology of tales about losing your career)
How To Kick People runs the last Wednesday of every month. It's a show for comedic storytellers and writers curated by Todd Levin and Bob Powers. Part reading series, part performance venue, each show is anchored by readings from Todd and Bob, and the lineup is chosen from New York's pool of authors, comedians, and performance artists.
