Reading Roulette: Literary Karaoke with a Twist

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Test your literary and comedic mettle in this game of literary chance. Participants will read randomly selected passages—in equally random voices (think Hamlet as Sonny and Cher or 50 Shades of Grey as Donald Trump)—and then hear from an American Idol-style panel of judges. Whether you stay in the audience (coward!), join the fun, or sign up a friend, you’re in for a night of hilarity and humiliation. $5-10 sliding scale
