Soundbites Festival Featuring Sara Benincasa 

When: Sept. 8-10 2016



The second annual Soundbites Festival brings a variety of podcasts to the stage of DSI Comedy Theater September 8 through 11. The headliner is Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi's impertinent pop-culture show, Throwing Shade, a two-time People's Choice Podcast Award winner for best LGBT podcast, and local comedy fans are sure to turn out in droves for a Mr. Diplomat improv performance featuring Robert Sledge of Ben Folds Five. Another big draw among the individually ticketed shows is writer and comedian Sara Benincasa, whose books get blurbed by the likes of Patton Oswalt. Benincasa resolutely focuses on real life in topical, interview-based essays about the agoraphobic experience (Agorafabulous!: Dispatches from My Bedroom) and, in her new book, the working lives of creative people. Local artists with day jobs tell all on Friday night in this live version of Real Artists Have Day Jobs, hosted by Benincasa, who also teaches a memoir-publishing workshop on Saturday. —Brian Howe
