Monday, November 22: Sex Ed!

I’m proud to announce the funny and talented lineup for Show and Tell on Monday, November 22 at Union Hall in Park Slope, Brooklyn (doors at 7:30– it’s the early show). They are seasoned and spicy veterans of the New York stage, all. (Me, not so much, unless we’re talking karaoke.)
For $5 you get 5 stories, each bolstered by its own helpful visuals. Territory covered under the night’s “Sex Ed” theme will include one young lady’s explorations in perversity, late-blooming first experiences, general deviance, and pervs. (Despite the theme, you can probably expect minimum sexiness from the stories, and as for my own reading, expect a high level of OMG WTF.)
Here’s the evening’s lineup of storytellers and readers:

    It sounds really interesting and fun!

    How can I participate?

    I am neither seasoned nor spicy – more like pickled.
