On March 5th, 826NYC will celebrate 10 years of tutoring and creative writing workshops for the children of New York City, some of whom might go on to become president, an investigative reporter, or a doctor who is very good at creative writing! To mark the occasion we’re putting on a show at Town Hall in New York called One-On-One that will feature conversations between paired artists: WNYC’s Kurt Andersen and documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, British ex-pat comedian John Oliver and Time Magazine’s Coolest Person of 2013 (this is true) Questlove, New York Times journalist Anand Giridharadas and Russian LGBT activist and journalist Masha Gessen, author Jon Ronson and Irish actor Chris O’Dowd, Fred Armisen and the Audience, hosted by Sarah Vowell and I, along with music by Robyn Hitchcock. All proceeds support 826NYC’s free writing and literacy programs. Get tickets by clicking on the following words — I am a good person who wants to help kids while enjoying a wonderful, unique show.
Also, you can use the discount code of 826NYC for 25% off regular tickets. There are also VIP tickets available for $250, which include great seats and a post-show meet-and-greet. If you get the $250 tickets, feel free to come up to me at the meet-and-greet, give me a hug, and then whisper, “You’re welcome.” I think that’s fair.
