Real Characters at McNally Jackson

Real Characters is a monthly storytelling and performance show that combines some of New York’s best storytellers with its funniest, most innovative comedians and writers. So, some of it’s true, some of it feels more than true, and most of it is mostly funny. Past performers include writers, journalists, actors, stand-ups and 1950s housewives, who have appeared on the Moth Mainstage, This American Life, BBC’s The World, HBO’s Funny or Die and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Joining us in January:

  • Larry Doyle (The Simpsons, The New Yorker, author of I Love you Beth Cooper and Deliriously Happy: and Other Bad Thoughts)
  • Ophira Eisenberg (Moth StorySLAM host)
  • Jillian Lauren (author of Pretty and Some Girls)
  • Frank Lesser (writer for The Colbert Report, author of Sad Monsters)
  • Starlee Kine (This American Life)
