Superb actors including Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock), Wyatt Cenac (Night Train) and Aya Cash (You're the Worst) read a hilarious assortment of comic fiction from a new collection of hidden gems from the spawning ground for Hollywood’s elite comedy writers and New Yorker humorists. With appearances by former staff writers Patricia Marx, Paul Simms, Kurt Andersen, Jonathan Adler, and more.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Actors subject to change.

Due to a scheduling conflict, Janeane Garofalo will not be able to perform at this event.
