Beth Lisick and Michael Ian Black

Join us for an entertaining evening with Beth Lisick and Michael Ian Black, two contemporary authors who use humor to examine the pitfalls and foibles that mark all our lives.

Whether touring with the spoken word ensemble Sister Spit, performing sketch comedy, or writing, Beth Lisick is expert at shining (often harsh) light onto the nooks and crannies of her own personal history. In her latest book, Yokohama Threeway: And Other Small Shames, she examines the minor embarrassments of her life with wry humor and her signature sharp-tongued style.

Fellow comedian and memoirist Michael Ian Black (author of You're Not Doing It Right), joins Beth to talk about the process—and the occasional terrors—of turning real-life stories into writing.
