This Sunday, September 7th, Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco plays venue
to another performance of Give Me Fiction,
the prose reading series hosted by comedian and writer Ivan Hernandez. The first Sunday
of every month, some of the finest minds in comedy, literature, and the arts
converge to present pieces based on a theme.
This month the theme is Technology,
and reading their work will be Sarah
Griffin, Wonder Dave, Maggie Tokuda-Hall, Kelly Anneken, Damon Blake, and Boing Boing's own Jason Weisberger. Performers on GMF have been
featured on The Rumpus, SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and
more. Each edition of the show is recorded for eventual release so this is your
chance to achieve digital audio immortality, way before the singularity hits.
You can buy tickets on Eventbrite, RSVP on Facebook, follow GMF on Twitter, and check out the podcast on Soundcloud.
