STAND-UP LIBRARIAN MEREDITH MYERS
BRINGS ALL-LITERARY COMEDY SHOW
TO THE STRAND DECEMBER 6TH
NEW YORK, NY (November 15, 2012) – “So a comedian walks into a library and decides to work there…” Comedian/Librarian Meredith Myers, also known as The Stand-Up Librarian, brings her all-literary comedy show to The Strand Book Store on December 6th. The event begins at 7pm and the purchase of a $10 Strand gift card is required to attend.
You’ve seen stand-up, but not like this! Myers will perform an hour of hilarious 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 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 Hugh Jackman and Jeremy Renner to Diana Krall and Whitney Houston. Binding her experiences in comedy and libraries, Meredith created StandUpLibrarian.com in June of 2010 to educate and entertain people about the importance of libraries and literacy. In 2012, she launched StandUpLibrarianDesigns.com so she would have something literary fabulous to wear! Her literary purses are carried by The Strand and are available for purchase at the show. Myers currently lives in St. Petersburg, FL and performs at library and book events across the country.
This event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at 828 Broadway at 12th Street. The purchase of a $10 Strand gift card is required to attend and may be used at any time, towards any purchase at the Strand.
