Our March edition of Funny Story returns to Brooklyn Brewery next Thursday, March 19 at 8pm and we’ve got an awesome lineup for you.

Alina Simone, author of Note to Self and contributor to publications like The New York Times, where she recently wrote about the hackers who took her mom’s PC hostage and how she had to pay to unlock her mom’s files by using a bitcoin ATM in Greenpoint—remember that story?—is going to be sharing another true tale on Thursday.

Writer, storyteller and comedian Heather Dockray—who recently wrote about the “mom and pop” BDSM dungeon in Park Slope—remember that story?! It was one of our most-read stories on the site ever—will be telling a story from her own life. I suspect it will be just as amazing.

Iris Explosion, sex educator, burlesque performer and woman with such a great name you should see her simply because of it, is also one of our storytellers, along with comedian Joey Callahan and Moth storyteller Robert Penty.

These talented performers will be sharing the stage at Brooklyn Brewery with Tom Shillue, the MC and mastermind of this storytelling series—one of the five best in New York City according to a reputable news source. We help curate the raconteurs for each edition, and if you haven’t been to Funny Story yet, Thursday’s the night to join us. Tickets are $10 and include a beer, just to get the fun started. The storytellers will take care of the rest.
