Have you been suffering from some post-holiday depression? Do you miss those days of having an excuse, besides loneliness, for being drunk and surrounded by friends? YOU ARE IN LUCK.
On February 6, at 8pm (7pm if you’re a VIP. Are you a VIP?), Blogologues is hosting “Behind The Scenes: Blogologues Benefit”, a fundraiser celebrating new media, the arts and women in comedy. The night includes cocktails, performances and presentations (bros, we got the awesome Trevor Owens, CEO of Lean Startup Machine, and Lauren Kaelin, creator ofBenjamemes). The event will be hosted at Classic Kids Photography (1182 Lexington Avenue), where all of our promo photos are taken!
You can purchase the wild General Admission Ticket for $35 (includes cocktails, mingling and dancing with the Blogologues team) or you can be a straight baller and purchase the VIP Premium Ticket for $75 (includes previous, plus early entrance at 7pm, champagne toast and a private Blogologues performance).
LET’S GET OUR CLASSY ON, AMIRITE?
We can sniff your untapped (or maybe, tapped) comedic potential from several subway stops away and we are beckoning you to brace us with your funny.
“Uh, what?”, you ask.
Sit back playa and let me tell you.
At READ THE INTERNET OUT LOUD: Open Mic Night, you can read that break-up text you’re dying to share with New York City or that OKCupid message that’s an goddamn POEM or that Craigslist post you “stumbled on”. You can do characters while you read it or you just be a pimp and straight up read it.
You don’t have to stay the whole time and, hell, you don’t even have to participate. But you pay whether or not you participate, and you get a free shot if you participate, so work that out.
Learn more and buy your tickets at READ THE INTERNET OUT LOUD: Open Mic Night.
See you in a few.
2013 is nearly over and— like every other year— you are feeling shitty for not achieving most things (if any thing at all) that you began the year intending to achieve. LOL Y U NO LEARN ALREADY?
You did not lose weight; you probably gained some.
You did not get that promotion; you are probably unemployed.
You did not get a girl/boyfriend; you probably spent every night drinking whiskey and rewatching Love Actually.
BUT do you know what will make you feel like less of a sweaty crust-ball?
This might be the greatest thing to ever happen to you. You are welcome.
In case you cannot relate to this post and have made great leaps in your life this year, why don’t you stop being that jerk that everyone wants to punch and do something for someone else (AKA Blogologues) and donate. Thanks.
To all those cave-people who are only able read the bold words in an article: YOU DONATE TO BLOGOLOGUES. YOU GET TAX WRITE-OFF. EVERYBODY HAPPY.
