Writer/performer Isaac Oliver's debut collection of essays, Intimacy Idiot, was hailed as "hilarious and unsparing" by New York Magazine, "transcendent" by Entertainment Weekly, and named one of NPR's Best Books of 2015. He returns to Los Angeles for one night only to read all-new stories and humor pieces — seated, of course — developed during his sold-out residencies at New York's Joe's Pub.
"A rare talent who manages to deftly combine raunchiness, intelligence, hilarity, and heart." —The New Yorker
"Brilliant and hilarious and surprisingly, shockingly at times, intimate. You'll want to have dinner with him and maybe want to slightly protect him from the world and himself." —Nathan Lane, The New York Times
“If David Sedaris and Fran Lebowitz had a baby who wrote about subways, theater patrons and blow jobs, he might be a lot like Isaac Oliver." —Time Out New York
