David Martin has performed comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre for many years now -- some might argue too many and he wouldn't disagree with those people. But he also hopes (fervently) to be performing there for many years to come.
For the past twelve years, he has hosted and produced Nights of Our Lives, the second oldest storytelling show in New York. The show has featured such performers as John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Rob Riggle, Bobby Moynihan, Chris Gethard, Chelsea Peretti, John Flynn, Adam Pally, Curtis Gwinn, Anthony Atamanuik, and Adam Wade. David is uncertain about how he could even be associated with the likes of such talented people.
This month our storytellers get all hot and bothered as they share with you tales of their most passionate nights. And boy does it get steamy. From a critical exegesis of Scorsese's The Last Passion of Christ to a bittersweet reminiscence of freshman love gone awry, our performers are going to get you and a loved one (or perhaps a complete stranger) very very lucky tonight.
We here at Nights of Our Lives are a passionate crew. Really we are. Our curfew is now 11:30pm! Not on school nights of course. We’ve also had crushes on boys who grew up to be famous tv stars and we’ve even managed to pick up a girl at a bar, once. Has your pulse stopped pounding?? Tune in this month to hear these and other barely safe for kindergarten tales of passion!
Somehow we’ve been telling stories for fifteen years now. Don’t ask us where the time went, we don’t know. But for our fifteenth anniversary we’ve gathered a trio of our favorite storytellers and we asked them to tell their favorite stories. Watch out for dead fish, aspiring models, and high school boners. You’ve been warned. Most importantly, thank you for listening all these years. Here’s to fifteen more.
We don’t love snow but we do love love. At least that’s what we claim during our round-table discussion. We hope, you love this month’s show, since our theme is, well, love. We explore love in all its facets: near death experiences, Humvees, and “the one who got away.” Here’s looking at you, kid.
Did you ever achieve sports glory? Me neither. So live vicariously through our performers this month as they regale us with such past triumphs as getting promoted to assistant bat boy, coaching a losing youth volleyball team, and pooping in a McDonald’s bag to get back at a crosstown rival. We only find the classiest storytellers for you!
It’s the holiday season and that can mean only one thing: yours truly complaining about snow and joy. And also presents. Presents are always good. Our storytellers end the year by sharing stories of their Best Presents: whether it be a mother’s kick in the pants, a family car, or a Cabbage Patch Doll named Debbie. We all hope you have a wonderful holiday season! See you next year!
We discuss all things Thanksgiving food in this month’s show, with yours truly—the host—decreeing that mashed potatoes should never ever be made with their skins on. Upon this I shall not waver. And with that we wish everyone a safe and healthy Thanksgiving!
