Beth Lapides enjoys Greg Behrendt so much that she asked him to be her sidekick when she had her radio show. It wasn’t long before he spun off to his own “Mantastic” show and then as the New York Times bestselling author of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” One thing we love about Greg is that whatever he’s into, he’s very into. Clothes, cookies, women, his daughters, love, guitars. He was also just a guest on Oprah’s “Lifeclass.” Greg Behrendt is in Episode 1 of UnCab Amazon.
We don’t need to tell you how funny Cheri Oteri is. She’s recently begun to treat us to her stories at UnCabaret, yay!
Joseph Keckler was the Village Voice’s 2013 Best Downtown NY Performance Artist. He sings opera and is very funny. We are delighted to have him grace our stage with his mesmerizing deliciousness once more before he heads back East.
Also here from NY — yay pilot season! — is Bridey Elliott. Her lovely quirky funniness might have a bit to do with the fact that her dad is Chris Elliott. And her grandfather is Bob Elliott of Bob and Ray. This is her first UnCab and we are very much looking forward to it.
It seems like a long time since we’ve had a visit from our friend Greg Fitzsimmons, who’s been out on the road. We are glad to have him in L.A. for a minute because he goes all the way and then a little farther and that makes us laugh. Check him out on Episode 3 of UnCab Amazon.
The Strands just sent us this new picture of them on the stairs. I bet that’s because they intend their music to take you higher!
