Some of the funniest writers in New York are getting together to let you know about the nights of their lives – those nights that stand out a cut above the rest, that left behind stories so full of hilarity and wonder that they’re worth sharing. This month is all about coming clean about past transgressions, which makes for a whole lot of funny.
Hosted by David Martin
This month’s theme: “Coming Clean”
David Martin began studying at the UCB in the fall of 2001.

He has been a member of Police Chief Rumble, Trillion, Grenade vs. Washing Machine, and he currently can be seen performing with Arsenal. He recently had a book published by Simon and Schuster entitled Officespeak, a comedic look at office culture. It might just be the funniest book ever written.
