UnCabaret is a place for comedy luminaries and their musical muses. We think of it as #sundaynightchurch. This Sunday October 23, join Beth Lapides and her friends….
Greg Behrendt is so freaking mantastic! Currently prepping a new show about a song, a cakebox and growing up on a strange trip to Japan. In the BG for GB… His work as a script consultant to the HBO sitcom Sex and the City paved the way for co-authoring of the New York Times bestseller He’s Just Not That into You. Which put him on Oprah! and into The Greg Behrendt Show and Greg Behrendt’s Wake Up Call. Greg has been part of UnCabaret since our days at LunaPark #family. In the best way.
