The storytelling and comedy scene in New York City is a source of endless creativity. Not quite under the radar, it’s bubbling up on small storytelling stages and in feisty comedy venues, primarily located in the far reaches of Manhattan and beyond. Join us as we bring to the Members’ Room a delightful roster of storytellers and comic actors with fresh, funny observations of our life and times, including Michael Arkin, Carmen Maria Machado, Nancy McCabe Kelly, Bruce Jarchow, Dorothea Benton Frank, Matthew Mercier, and Sarah Fearon.

Uptown at Night presents live storytelling and comedy on the Upper East Side. It is a collaboration of Sydney LeBlanc, a writer, and Mickey Murray, a producer. Ms. Murray began her career in TV, working with the Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett shows. Ms. LeBlanc frequently reads her humorous short stories at Live from the Library.
