Blaria Live! Birthday Spectacular!
Sep 28, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $15
Comedians Phoebe Robinson & Jessica Williams host this monthly stand up show based on the popular blog of the same name and the show features the best comics from all over the country.
Jessica then became a “comedic animal.” She was funny, but intense and domineering. She was only blood- thirsty for the giggles and laughter of others. To fill her insatiable appetite, Jessica threw herself into the intense and cut-throat world of improv and sketch comedy. She frantically performed in shows with “ComedySportz: The College Team” and at the “Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre”. A lot of people died laughing.
When not working in television, Ms. Robinson is a writer for Glamour.com and contributes to The New York Times, bitch magazine, xoJane.com, VH1.com, Refinery 29.com, Decider.com,VanityFair.com, and TheDailyBeast.com. Her blog Blaria (aka Black Daria), which is rapidly approaching 150,000 views, has been featured on The Huffington Post, and has launched a podcast as well as a monthly stand up show at UCB East that she co-hosts with The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams and it has consistently sold out since its inception nearly a year ago.
She recently just finished opening for The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac and Broad City on their comedy tours and is currently a staff writer on Fuse’s upcoming daily late night pop culture talk show.
