Ophira Eisenberg (NPR’s Ask Me Another) and Emily Flake (The New Yorker) present: SH!T SHOW

June 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| $8
ShitShow4

After three sold out shows, Ophira Eisenberg and Emily Flake have decided to make SH!T SHOW a “thing”. Returning on Friday, June 9th to Union Hall in Brooklyn, SH!T SHOW promises a night of comedy that comes from vulnerability, high risk choices, and the utter absurdity of being a parent.

Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg (NPR’s Ask Me Another) and Emily Flake (The New Yorker), SH!T SHOW features comedians Adira Amram (Funny or Die), Kat Burdick (‘Let’s Say You’re Right’ @ Creek, The Moth GrandSLAM Champion), Ben Schwartz (New Yorker Cartoonist), Abby Sher (author, and new book: All the Ways the World Can End)…plus maybe more, or maybe less if someone’s asshole kid gets sick…

Some comedians are unwise enough to breed – and on this night, they will mine the fallout of that decision on stage. None of the children of the performers are likely to be present, which is a good thing, because they’re probably gonna say really mean things about them.

Tickets are available for purchase at unionhallny.com.
