I'm at Joe's Pub tonight for Heeb Storytelling: Live Comics Edition!

See you at Joe's Pub tonight! I've been there many times over the years for performances so it's a bit surreal to be gracing their stage. Giant thanks to Jeff Newelt and Seth Kushner for including me in this fabulous event. And I will not be racing through it like I was at In The Flesh. Life is SOOOO much easier when it's not your event, and also this event was a pick by Flavorpill and Time Out New York so I'm sure will be crowded. My last event of 2011, featuring me reading the part of, um, me, from my CulturePOP profile by Seth Kushner.

And if you haven't seen it yet, do check out the CulturePOP profile of Reggie Watts. Rakesh Satyal called me a "character" at In The Flesh (as a compliment), and I was very flattered. I'm writing a column about sex and social media and assumptions, being guilty of making the same ones I abhor when people make about me, so it's an interesting word. Not sure what it means, and lately, I've been feeling, well, like a sad character. But tonight will be fun and sparkly!

The profile features part of my story "Vegas Treat" from Best Bondage Erotica 2011 which I treated (I had to do it) you all to last week.

Heeb Storytelling: Live Comics Edition a night of irreverent entertainment—graphic novel-style—curated by Heeb’s comics editor Jeff Newelt.
