Tips For Today: Steamboat Humor Series, Egg Creams + the PS 122 Spring Gala

MichaelIBCOVERweb.jpgSteamboat Humor Series with Michael Ian Black, Julie Klausner + More

Comedian Bob Powers hosts this monthly night of readings from humor writers, and tonight's installment sounds like it's going to be especially great. Michael Ian Black's reading from his new book, You're Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Death, Sex, and Other Humiliations, and Paper contributor Cintra Wilson, Julie Klausner, Guilia Rozzi, and Powers will read from Care to Make Love In That Gross Little Space Between Cars: The Believer Book of Advice. (Which we're currently reading and is, as-expected, super funny.)

Greenlight Books, 86 Fulton Street, Fort Greene, Brooklyn, (718) 246- 0200. 7:30 p.m. Free.
