Just a few days ago we hosted a live comedy event in New York City’s Javitz center during BookCon 2015. It was a terrific show featuring comedians that have ties to the literary world. Either recently penning books of their own or have one on the horizon. So, at the end of the day Saturday a few hundred literary fans gathered in room A123 where Sara Benincasa hosted an evening of comedy. There was stand-up, there was some Q&A, and there were lots of laughs. Robert Kelly, John Leguizamo, Judah Friedlander, and Lizz Winstead all entertained an incredibly responsive crowd making references to books, authors, and pop culture moments that they might not’ve landed in a traditional comedy club. But when you tell jokes to a bunch of literary fans, the game gets elevated. If you missed the evening don’t worry, we taped a podcast with some of the comedians that’s due out later. And as always, we have some pictures.
