Led by Rakesh Satyal (No One Can Pronounce My Name), master storyteller Gary Shteyngart and "5 Under 35" honoree Weike Wang come together to read Shteyngart's much-anticipated new novel, Lake Success and Wang's smash-hit debut, Chemistry. First you'll hear the author's story as written, then a comedian has five minutes to take the book's themes and run with them. The catch? Our two brave comics, Dulcé Sloan (The Daily Show) and Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing) haven't quite done their reading.
