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.

You can check out Jawnee Conroy at the UCB Theatre in “Bro’in Out,” which was featured on Comedy Central’s “Comedians of Comedy” with Brian Posehn and Patton Oswalt. You can also catch him alongside the Sopranos’ granny-lovin’ psychopath Paulie in a Denny’s ad, where a trembling Conroy points out a waiter who “served him a fake breakfast” in a fictional police lineup organized by Paulie plays a humorously unconvincing cop.
