Knitting Factory - Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY
The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre presents, in a benefit performance for the Henry Miller Memorial Library: Big Sur Brooklyn Bridge, an evening of storytelling and improvisation celebrating the life and work of Henry Miller by some of New York City’s funniest performers.
First, renowned storytellers and UCBT regulars will share their stories of censorship, sex, obscenity and more. Featuring Chris Gethard (IFC, The Chris Gethard Show), Adam Wade (The Moth), Dave Martin (Nights of Our Lives) and more.
Then, some of the top improvisers in New York City will present a fully improvised set of long-form comedy based on stories from guest monologuist Sara Schaefer (MTV’s Nikki & Sara Live). It will be fast, it might be dirty, and it will definitely be stream-of-consciousness. Henry Miller would approve.
