For Immediate Release


ST. PETERSBURG, FL (November 13, 2012) – “So a comedian walks into a library and decides to work there…”  St. Petersburg native Meredith Myers, also known as The Stand-Up Librarian, brings her all-literary comedy show to Venue Theatre on November 30th and December 1st.  Show times are 8pm and ticket prices only $15.

You’ve seen stand-up, but not like this!  Myers will perform an hour of literary entertainment for all ages as she riffs on pop culture icons, authors, story time, and books, books, books.  A combination of Pippi Longstocking and Sandra Bernhard with the wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw, Myers entertains while educates about the importance of literacy and libraries as she addresses Melvil Dewey and the Dewey Decimal System, honors Edgar Allan Poe in a rock n’ roll musical parody, and dances on a book cart to Madonna, all in literary costumes she sews herself.  There will most certainly be no shushing at this show!

Myers has a Masters degree in Library and Information Sciences from the University of South Florida and has been performing stand-up comedy across the country since 2002 after checking out a comedy book from her local library.  She wrote, produced and starred in her one-woman show Like a Publicist off-off Broadway in 2003, which received rave reviews and was based on her years working in public relations for celebrities including Hugh Jackman and Jeremy Renner to Diana Krall and Whitney Houston.  Binding her experiences in comedy and libraries, Meredith created www.StandUpLibrarian.com in June of 2010 to educate and entertain people about the importance of libraries and literacy.  In 2012, she launched www.StandUpLibrarianDesigns.com so she would have something literary fabulous to wear!  She currently lives in St. Petersburg and performs at library and book events across the country.
