SEPTEMBER 26, 7pm
Philip blue owl Hooser Presents
Eat Their Words
$5-15 at the door

Ironic toward the iconic, "Eat Their Words" returns to the Fishtank Performance Studio after summer vacation with a fresh new set of stale celebrity books to read from, and all for laughs.

"It's like adult story time -- and sometimes very adult, "says series curator Philip blue owl Hooser. "Some very talented and funny performers gather to read from literary heavyweights like Suzanne Somers, Marilu Henner, and Keith Richards. We will also premiere a selection from a very special collective autobiography which is not just beyond belief, it is Beyonce belief."

The books are brought to life by a revolving cast of some of the area's best comedic performers, including Bess Wallerstein, Mel Neet, Pete Bakely, Gail Bronfman Bunch, and Samantha Silveira.
