This is a past event.

Jane Borden 

When: Fri., Nov. 4, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $10



Some people are funnier on paper than in real life, but with Jane Borden it's a toss-up. In her best-selling I Totally Meant to Do That, she created a memorable chronicle of her transition from cloistered Southern debutante to would-be New York hipster, making fans of such high-flying wits as Gary Shteyngart and Amy Poehler and earning comparisons to another sharply funny North Carolinian writer, David Sedaris. She's also a seasoned actor and improviser, having spent years with Upright Citizens Brigade before moving on to a stand-up career, where her infectious bemusement has made her a familiar presence at comedy festivals far and wide. She's written for SNL and is an accomplished travel writer, too. Whatever the setting, Borden's humor derives from a genuine curiosity about the world, not merely the impulse to make people laugh. Get closer on Saturday, when she'll conduct a workshop. —David Klein
