MONDAY, April 30th
CBS/NYC Presents: Liam McEneaney's "Writings with Music"
at Mo Pitkin's
34 Ave. A
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:
ERIC DRYSDALE, a comedian/writer who won five Emmys for his work on "The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart," co-authored the NY Times bestseller "America: The Book," and is currently on the writing staff of the hit Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," on which he can regularly be seen as "Bobby, the Stage Manager."
BOB POWERS, the creator of the wildly popular website girlsarepretty.com. His book, "Happy Cruelty Day," was recently published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press, and was called "crass, witty, snarky, and unbelievably funny" by the Library Journal. Along with Todd Levin, he is the curator/host of How to Kick People, a reading show that was featured at the 2006 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
JANICE ERLBAUM, is the author of "Girlbomb, A Halfway Homeless Memoir," published by Random House/Villard. The NY Times called it a "a smart, engaging book," and the NY Post gave it four stars, and the New York Public Library called it one of 2006's "25 Books to Remember."
And featuring the music of EVAN SILVERMAN'S JAZZHOLE.
EVAN SILVERMAN has played music around the world (including two tours of England) and extensively throughout the United States, covering 40 states. He has also opened for acts like Echo and the Bunnymen, No Doubt, and Bob Dylan.
