Bad Date Great Story Storytelling Comedy Show Turns 21!

Media Contact: Emi & Jessie at BadDateGreatStory@gmail.com

We are pleased to announce that on Saturday, March 19th 2016 at 5pm, New York’s Bad Date Great Story show will have its twenty-first performance. We’re legal baby!

Going on six years of celebrating bad dates with NYC’s funniest people in downtown Manhattan, BDGS will perform at its current home the famous The Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street— New York’s oldest rock club.

Being that heartbreak and crappy dates are older than time—the venue couldn’t be more fitting!

Past performers range from the SNL’s hilarious Sasheer Zamata… to performers we’ve loved for years like the endearing Mara Wilson… and epic comedians who are grabbing headlines nationwide on Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing like Late Night with Seth Meyers writer Aparna Nancherla and Broad City writer Naomi Ekperigin—As well as literary darlings, like National Book Award winner of Redeployment writer Phil Klay. We are so lucky for these next five to hit the BDGS stage:

Join five stellar talents:

Charlotte Glasser The Moth legend and LGBT events supercreator

Francesca Hogi, Two time Survivor contestant, love expert regularly featured on Today show with Kathie Lee & Hoda

Sean Wilkinson Comedy festival God, fake beauty pageant winner

Dru Johnston, Writer for Slate, MTV, last seen on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Petey DeAbreu, Taking over the NYC comedy scene…

 

The event will be in typical BDGS fashion be bursting with slap bracelets, candy and oh so juicy stories….

 

Tickets are $7, but please email us if you are press (or we forgot we owe you money) and we’ll leave tickets in your name at the door!

One year later… Remember the time when you met a girl at Olive Tree and then you planned one year later to go out on a date and DID NOT REMEMBER A FREAKING THING ABOUT HER because obviously you were at Olive Tree and high?

If so, this is your story. If not, You MUST hear Kevin’s rules for dating.

You know how it is. You meet the person of your dreams, they used to be a drug addict, you make plans to change your life around for them and then this happens. Oh, and it’s hilarious because it’s told by Bustle’s very own clever as ever writer Gaby Moss…

#TBT to our last Bad Date Great Story show!

When MOTH winner Brian Kennedy moved to Minneapolis post-college, he was excited to meet a man who could show him the ropes. Phil seemed like the perfect guy to do so–until their “tour” of Minneapolis took an unexpected turn.

Next show is at The Bitter End on Oct 3rd! Hope to see you there!
