Host Sofija Stefanovic welcomes some of her favorite outsiders for a celebration of immigration! 

Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions.

This May uncensored on our stage, we bring you:

Mansoor Basha (storyteller)
Wo Chan (poet and drag performer)
Ana Fabrega (actress and comedian)
Masha Gessen (National Book Award winner for The Future is History)
Aatish Taseer (journalist and author of The Way Things Were)
…with music from Amalia Watty

In a multicultural world that harbors some strong anti-immigration feelings, being a newcomer can be uncomfortable, hilarious, and weird. But it also makes for some great stories.

Come for the stories, leave with some feelings – and enjoy drinks, laughs and cries in between.
