Dear Owen Wilson is a live comedy show hosted by Blair Socci. After a wildly successful, sold-out run in New York City, this is the show's Los Angeles debut. Based on a letter Blair wrote to Owen Wilson in 2007 after his suicide attempt telling him how much she loved him and appreciated him, the show will feature comedians reading a letters to the celebrities of their choice. They could write it from the perspective of their 13 year old selves connecting to Dave Matthews Band as their parents are getting a divorce, or maybe they just want to tell Madonna how hot she is. After, Blair will interview them about it. The show will also include stand-up, special guests, and other surprises. Come get to know comedians spilling their heart out in ways you've never seen before.

Isaac Oliver Sits Down - SOLD OUT

in the stage room:
Writer/performer Isaac Oliver's debut collection of essays, Intimacy Idiot, was hailed as "hilarious and unsparing" by New York Magazine, "transcendent" by Entertainment Weekly, and named one of NPR's Best Books of 2015. He returns to Los Angeles for one night only to read all-new stories and humor pieces — seated, of course — developed during his sold-out residencies at New York's Joe's Pub.

"A rare talent who manages to deftly combine raunchiness, intelligence, hilarity, and heart." —The New Yorker

"Brilliant and hilarious and surprisingly, shockingly at times, intimate. You'll want to have dinner with him and maybe want to slightly protect him from the world and himself." —Nathan Lane, The New York Times

“If David Sedaris and Fran Lebowitz had a baby who wrote about subways, theater patrons and blow jobs, he might be a lot like Isaac Oliver." —Time Out New York
