An Evening of Humorous Readings is a monthly show of literary humorists reading their most literary humor! We feature short humor pieces, like the kind you find on McSweeney’s or Shouts and Murmurs, read aloud by the people who wrote them. An Evening of Humorous Readings has featured writers from Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Onion, and more.
