Media Contact: Emi & Jessie at We are pleased to announce that on Saturday, March 19th 2016 at 5pm, New York’s Bad Date Great Story show will have its twenty-first performance. We’re legal baby!

Going on six years of celebrating bad dates with NYC’s funniest people in downtown Manhattan, BDGS will perform at its current home the famous The Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street— New York’s oldest rock club.

Being that heartbreak and crappy dates are older than time—the venue couldn’t be more fitting!

Past performers range from the SNL’s hilarious Sasheer Zamata... to performers we’ve loved for years like the endearing Mara Wilson... and epic comedians who are grabbing headlines nationwide on Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing like Late Night with Seth Meyers writer Aparna Nancherla and Broad City writer Naomi Ekperigin—As well as literary darlings, like National Book Award winner of Redeployment writer Phil Klay. We are so lucky for these next five to hit the BDGS stage:
