Phoebe Robinson @ Gramercy Theatre
Monday October 15: 8:00PM – 9:00PM
From New York Times bestselling author and star of 2 Dope Queens, Phoebe Robinson, comes a new, hilarious, and timely essay collection on gender, race, dating, and a world that seems to always be a self-starting Dumpster-fire.
Wouldn’t it be great if life came with an instruction manual? Of course, but like access to Michael B. Jordan’s house, none of us are getting any. Thankfully, Phoebe Robinson is ready to share everything she’s experienced in hopes that if you can laugh at her topsy-turvy life, you can laugh at your own.
Written in her trademark unfiltered and singularly witty style, Robinson’s latest essay collection is a call to arms. She tackles a wide range of topics, such as giving feminism a tough love talk in hopes it can become more intersectional; telling society’s beauty standards to kick rocks; and demanding that toxic masculinity close its mouth and legs (enough with the manspreading already!), and get out of the way so true progress can happen.
Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay is a candid perspective for a generation that has had the rug pulled out from under it too many times to count, as well as an intimate conversation with a new best friend. Phoebe will be joined in conversation by actor and comedian Vanessa Bayer!
Vanessa Bayer is an Emmy-nominated actress and comedian, known for her seven seasons on Saturday Night Live, as well as her roles in films such as Trainwreck, Office Christmas Party, and most recently, Netflix’s Ibiza.
