The holiday of Purim is full of sheroes! We’re hosting a night of comedy celebrating women and roasting cancelled men—from within the story of Purim to pop culture.

We’re going to “boo” toxic masculinity with New York’s best comedians including Kelly Bachman, Orli Matlow, Jess Salomon, Anna Roisman, Julia Shiplett, and our returning Ha“MAN” of the evening, Josh Gondleman. More comedians to come.

Join us for a Megillah (the story of Purim) reading before the show at 6 pm, and a Purim party with hamentashen and drinks after the laughs. It's traditional to dress in costume on Purim, so feel free to come dressed up! Check out a breakdown of our evening below.

  • Megillah Reading: 6 pm
  • Comedy Show: 7 pm
  • Purim Party: 8:30 pm

All proceeds go towards funding Housing Works' mission to fight AIDS and homelessness in New York City.

This program is offsite at Housing Works Bookstore & Café. $20 per ticket online with one drink on us! ($25 at the door)
