From the House of Speakeasy website:
Seriously Entertaining, New York’s premier literary cabaret series showcasing writers and their passions, is an intellectual roller-coaster of a show. The Wall Street Journal calls it “Think-y entertainment for New York’s book-loving crowd,” The New York Times says it’s “a literary mixtape [with] perfect flow and variety,” and CBS Local News adds: “You have never seen a cabaret quite like this…. The lineup includes some of the most brilliant minds in the literary and artistic worlds.”
Seriously Entertaining packs a big punch, regularly hosting talent such as Eve Ensler, Margo Jefferson, John Guare, Jason Reynolds, PJ O'Rourke, Loudon Wainwright III, Steven Pinker, Kevin Young, and Damian Barr. The show asks each writer to riff on a given theme for ten minutes only. Whether the result leaves you howling with laughter or sorrow, it will be an evening you’re sure to remember.
Seriously Entertaining is the flagship show of House of SpeakEasy, a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to connecting writers and audiences in innovative and sustaining ways – in classrooms through our SpeakTogether writing workshops, in the community with our book truck, and at Joe’s Pub.
