I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving with family & friends and are now getting into the holiday spirit by decorating trees and reading Dickens! I am busy preparing for my shows at Venue Theatre and The Strand Bookstore which are just days away. I have also been creating some very special holiday items that are available for a limited time only at my shows and at StandUpLibrarianDesigns.com. Why hang a store-bought Christmas stocking when you can have a personalized book stocking to encourage reading!
I hope all of you will have a chance to come to one of the shows because it is truly a celebration for me and I am going all out. I started performing stand-up comedy in NYC back in 2002 so to return and perform my all-literary comedy act at The Strand Bookstore is such an honor. Plus to perform in my hometown for the first time in ten years is pretty cool too. Nothing makes me prouder than writing jokes that hopefully people enjoy but more importantly encourages them to read!
The show info is below…hope to see you there!
STAND-UP LIBRARIAN MEREDITH MYERS
“So a comedian walks into a library and decides to work there…”
You’ve seen stand-up, but not like this! Comedian/Librarian Meredith Myers will perform an hour of hilarious literary entertainment for all ages as she riffs on pop culture icons, authors, story time, and books, books, books. A combination of Pippi Longstocking and Sandra Bernhard with the style of Carrie Bradshaw, Myers entertains while educates about the importance of literacy and libraries as she addresses Melvil Dewey and the Dewey Decimal System, honors Edgar Allan Poe in a rock n’ roll musical parody, and dances on a book cart in a delicious holiday-inspired musical number all in literary costumes she sews herself! There will most certainly be no shushing at this show!
