Who knows better than writers what it’s like to suffer from heartbreak? Tonight, Blaise Allysen Kearsley, creator and producer of Happy Ending’s free monthly series of shared life lessons, hosts a slew of talented and funny writers who will share just how they learned It’s Not Me, It’s You (Or Maybe It’s Me). Those performing are Sam Lipsyte, author of the hilarious and highly acclaimed novel The Ask, which just happens to feature a lovelorn loser as its protagonist; Andrea Rosen, comic actress and writer seen on VH1 and at the UCB Theatre with Variety Shac; Elissa Bassist, writer and editor of The Rumpus column Funny Women; and Jim O’Grady, WNYC radio reporter and award-winning storyteller. Go to feel better about your love life and laugh with those who’ve profited from their own misery.
