THE BITCH SEAT

The Bitch Seat: Therapy for your misspent youth.

In this interview-style, live talk show, host Lyssa Mandel invites guests to present poignant/painful creations from their adolescence on stage (poetry, drawings, songs, sketches, videos…Wicca boxes…) and follows with engaging questions that cut to the heart of how all our teenage pain is the same. And it’s funny. Think of it as Judy Blume meets Dr. Phil. Raucous laughter and redemption ensue. Bar in the theater to chase down the pubescent demons.

This month’s guests:
Jo Firestone
Tom Cowell (Village Voice)

Past shows have included:
Moody high school travel journaling from comedian BROOKE VAN POPPELEN (MTV’s Hack My Life)
Broadway-worthy Bar Mitzvah footage from comedian SETH HERZOG (the new Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon)
An original song about kangaroos from the summer camp days of comedian MYQ KAPLAN (Conan, Letterman, Last Comic Standing finalist)
The epic sticker collection of comedian APARNA NANCHERLA (Totally Biased, Conan)
Dawson’s Creek/N*Sync mashup fan fiction from writer GABY DUNN (New York Times Magazine, Salon, Slate, Buzzfeed)
