Emergency room visits for being stoned, a near-drowning by an evil best friend, sex involving Sloppy Joes–these are a few of our favorite things we’ve heard at Funny Story, the monthly storytelling series we co-curate with comedian Tom Shillue. He’s out of town this month but has left us in very good hands tonight. Sean Donnelly, who regularly headlines at Caroline’s and Gotham, will be hosting, and joining us is the one and only Sara Schaefer of MTV’s Nikki & Sara Live, stand-up Nick Vatterott, and two special guests from Brooklyn Based, writer Jon Reiss and artist Steven Weinberg. An extra-special surprise guest might take mic, too, but you’ll have to make your way to Brooklyn Brewery to find out. Tickets cost $10 for all this entertainment, plus special guests, and a beer. Doors open at 8, the shenanagins begin at 8:30.
