Do you have a few free hours tomorrow night and $8 to spare to help out fellow Brooklynites in need? If so, you should hit up the Geeking Out Hurricane Sandy Relief Show at Union Hall at 8PM. All ticket proceeds will be donated to the Brooklyn Community Foundation's Brooklyn Recovery Fund to aid those hit hardest during Hurricane Sandy.
For those who are unfamiliar, Geeking Out is a recurring comedy & storytelling show hosted by bespectacled comedy people Nate Fernald and FiPS' own Kerri Doherty that brings crazy-talented performers together for a night of shameless nerding out on the bands they love, the celebrities they obsess over and the video games that nearly wore their thumbs to stumps. Tomorrow night's line-up includes:
* Selena Coppock (Author of The New Rules For Blondes, College Humor)
* Abbi Crutchfield (VH1, MTV, Positively Awesome)
* Meg Ferrill (Morgan Spurlock's Failure Club, Chicago Women's Funny Festival)
* Leslie Goshko (Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion, Sideshow Goshko)
AND you can enter a raffle for a chance to win a signed copy of comedian Mike Birbiglia's New York Times best-selling book, Sleepwalk With Me (I've read it -- it's fantastic).
So come on out and have some drinks, listen to some hilarious and embarrassing stories (plus a few PowerPoint presentations replete with embarrassing childhood photos) and do lots of good while you're at it!
[Geeking Out is on Tuesday, 12/4 at Union Hall at 702 Union Street. Doors are at 8PM, $8]
