Every third Thursday of the month, Daniel Guzman brings together authors, bloggers, comedians, and performers to share fiction and nonfiction tales involving everyday objects and the secrets they reveal about us. From the sublime to the surprising, each show is as diverse and tempting as the contents of a lost and found box.
George Flanagan is a musician who dabbles in the comedy world. While his band El Jezel has been playing their blend of post-rock/shoegaze at clubs around the city for over ten years now, he only began hosting and booking a monthly stand up show in 2010. For three years this packed show (Spit Take Friday at Fort Useless) in Bushwick has featured some of NYC’s best new comics. He also hosts and co-produces Guilty Pleasures, a variety and burlesque show at The Secret Theater in Long Island City. Lately his favorite color has been baby blue.
