Writer/performer Isaac Oliver's debut collection of essays, Intimacy Idiot, was named one of NPR's Best Books of 2015. After last year's sold-out residency, Oliver returns to Joe's Pub on Valentine's Eve for a fresh glass of pink wine, debuting brand-new stories as well as sharing old favorites — seated, of course.

"The rare author who reads his work in a nightclub ... I haven’t seen this style anywhere else, but it feels just right. It’s pleasing and freeing to be in his presence. You’re careening somewhere madly, and you trust that you’re going to like where you end up." —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
