Wednesday Dec 19, 2012 7:00pm-10:00pm in New York
You want to miss lots of stuff this holiday season, but you don't want to miss this.

Comedy, a really awful terrible gift for everyone who comes, a two minute shitty holiday story contest, and many more surprises, some of them pleasant.

5-10 bucks sliding scale, we'll put up a link for advance tickets really soon.

Kelli Dunham
Kelli Dunham ( is everyone's favorite ex-nun genderqueer nerd comic. Kelli was one of Velvet Park Magazine’s 25 Significant Queer Women of 2011 and was named to the 2012 Campus Pride Hotlist. Kelli was also given the The Fresh Fruit Festival Award for Distinction in stand-up comedy, although Kelli has never before or since been called distinguished. Kelli is the author of four books of humorous non-fiction, including two children’s books being used by Sonlight conservative home schooling association in their science curriculum. Her fifth book, Freak of Nurture, a collection is humorous essays is being released by Topside Press in Spring 2013.

Kelli was recently the expert on “What Is Normal” in the teenybopper periodical Twist, on a page facing a full color poster of Justin Beiber. There isn't even a ironic statement to match that, it's just strangely true.
