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.
Even though we’re locked down, we can still open up about summer days gone by. Our fearless host’s mom even stops by! Learn about David’s storied swimming career! Hear about Adam’s summer romance he can’t forget! Indulge Adam and David’s nostalgic ramblings about a show they did five years ago in Vermont! Stay safe and be well.
We all know we need to wash our hands these days, but we shouldn’t forget that we also need to wash our consciences from time to time. You listener shall play confessor to our sinful storytellers! Be warned! These are depraved tales of dead goldfish, onerous kennel duties, and impostor basketball players! You’ve been warned!
We doubt the theme of this month’s show has anything to do with what’s going on in the world but we don’t doubt that, at some point, we’ve all been sick. Let’s just hope it’s not right now. Join us in revisiting past maladies from a chopped off finger to a completely made-up little boy who has cancer! It’s all funny, we promise.
Oh how lucky we are. Especially when compared to the storytellers we rounded up for you this month. From having baby carrots lodged in their throats to being called “Barf” by their wrestling coach to playing pick-up basketball with a man decades older than they—our performers have experienced “luck” in all her wild and wooly permutations. And now you’ll be the lucky ones to hear their stories.
Would you accept a $100,00 to sleep with a total stranger? (Full disclosure: I absolutely would.) Would you stay in a relationship with someone who repeatedly kissed other people? Would you let an adult beat you in basketball (you’re a kid in this scenario)? Find out the answers to these questions and more (ok maybe not that much more) as we explore the theme of Cheating!
We all know that the true spirit of the holidays lies in the receiving not the giving of the presents. Listen with envy as our storytellers share their presents of love, a purloined television, and the clemency of a small time hood!
