Jenny Slate going on book tour, preps ‘Stage Fright’ Netflix special
Jenny Slate has a busy fall. She’s got a Netflix special, titled Stage Fright, that will be out October 22 and that she describes as a “part stand-up, part documentary about my family, my fears, my heart, and a lot of other things that will make you laugh.” You can watch a very brief teaser for Stage Fright, below.
She’ll be facing her stage fright (which she’s discussed in the past) when she goes on a tour for her new book, Little Weirds, that’s out November 5. The November tour hits DC, NYC (Town Hall on 11/5), Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles and Boston. Tickets for the Town Hall show, which is part of the New York Comedy Festival, are on sale now and the rest of the tour goes on sale Friday, September 20 at 10 AM EST.
For more on Little Weirds, here’s Jenny’s synopsis:
Hello! I looked into my brain and found a book. Here it is. Inside you will find:
The smell of honeysuckle
A French-kissing rabbit
A haunted house
A vagina singing sad old songs
Young geraniums in an ancient castle
A dog who appears in dreams as a spiritual guide
Electromagnetic energy fields
The ghost of a sea captain
I hope you enjoy these little weirds.
All tour dates are listed below.
