Ben Karlin Presents, Fountains of Wayne, UCBcomedy.com

by Klaus Kinski

Ben KarlinI just had a gander at the UCB NY schedule and got super-pumped by a recurring February show called Ben Karlin Presents: Things I’ve Learned From Women Who’ve Dumped Me…LIVE!. The show will happen once a week, has an ever-changing line-up of comedians and special guests, and will feature live music by FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE. From the site:

“Things I’ve Learned From Women Who’ve Dumped Me…LIVE!” is an hour-long comedy show on the subject of failed relationships and the shit we endure to make them work even when God himself tells us they won’t. Sprung from the book of the same name – an anthology of essays and short humor pieces by men, edited by Ben Karlin (The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart) – the live show will feature a blend of read and performed pieces from the book, stand-up comedy, live music, special guests and other material wrapped around the theme of relationships gone bad.

I think these shows will sell out very quickly (all shows are $5). Check out the schedule below, and click the dates to make rezzies.
