Guest host Jane Curtin presents stories of drinking, parties and what comes after drunken parties. Michael Gerber and Jonathan Schwarz's “What We Talk About When We Talk About Doughnuts” is a riff on a famous Raymond Carver tale; it's performed by Joey Slotnick. Early New Yorker humorist Corey Ford tells us just what can go wrong at “The Office Party,” performed by Jordan Klepper. And a wry tale of boozy suburbia, “The Sorrows of Gin,” by John Cheever, is performed by Kathleen Chalfant.
