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, "surprisingly moving" by Kirkus, and named one of NPR's Best Books of 2015. After two sold-out engagements last year, Oliver returns to Joe's Pub for a yearlong residency and a glass of pink wine, debuting brand-new stories as well as sharing old favorites.
