Isaac Oliver's blog, hewholaughs.com, goes live in this hilarious, bawdy, and surprisingly poignant evening of stories and scenes. Ingeniously meshing the worlds of blogging and live theater, He Who Laughs: Live is a fun and fast-paced evening of tales from the blog. Issac brings to life a series of hilarious, bawdy and surprisingly poignant New York moments, celebrity crushes, scenes from casual sex, peeks behind a box office window and run-ins with a seductively anthropomorphized corporate coffee chain.
Deemed "a monstrous new talent" by New York Magazine, Isaac Oliver's plays include Electra in a One-Piece, Eddie Goshen is Dead, Long Dirty Jokes, and Slim, Dancing Joy. His poetry has been published in The Full Spectrum: A New Generation of Writing About Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Other Identities, a Knopf anthology. His blog, He Who Laughs, or The Complete Idiot's Guide to Intimacy, can be read at www.hewholaughs.com.
