Samantha Irby Joins Paper Machete Cocktail Hour on Wednesday
"The one and only SAMANTHA IRBY is headlining tomorrow night's Paper Machete Cocktail Hour at the Green Mill at 6:30.
She's a longtime Machete rock-star—from before our Green Mill days—but this is her first time back in the show in the past year and a half, and the first time since she's become a hotshit NY Times best-selling author. The cast is wonderful and the show should be a blast."
For those who may be unfamiliar with Wednesday night Paper Machete, it is described like this: "The Machete's newest weekly venture, the Paper Machete Cocktail Hour, is a free 90-minute, intermission-less live magazine on Wednesdays at 6:30. The Cocktail Hour will feature the same style and format as our flagship Saturday afternoon salon series, with the goal of putting even more of Chicago’s finest comics, writers and musicians in front of twice as many enthusiastic audiences."
In other words, Fun — Free — Fabulous!
The rest of the cast on Wednesday includes Erin Diamond, Nic Hart, Alex Kumin, Saurabh Pande, Julia Weiss, and Josh Zagoren, with music from Wes Perry.
The Green Mill is located at 4802 North Broadway.
