Each month at the legendary Joe’s Pub, Sofija Stefanovic welcomes some of her favorite people for a celebration of immigration. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more!
Please join us for our next show on Wednesday, December 12th - our special guests will be announced shortly.
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.
Advance ticket price: $20
Door price: $25
WHO ARE OUR GUESTS?
People with immigrant backgrounds (new to America or born here). In our current political climate, we think sharing immigrant stories is important.
Some of our past guests have included comedian Aparna Nancherla (talking about her immigrant mother’s attempts to make Aparna less shy), Call Me by Your Name author André Aciman (talking about being an alien, on the brink of two cultures), domestic worker and activist Christine Lewis (reading a piece about New York’s nannying culture), violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins (playing pieces from Broadway’s Fiddler on the Roof), Julio Torres of Saturday Night Live (talking about his hilarious experiences at the Salvadoran Consulate), tech icon Anil Dash (listing notable advice of his immigrant parents), and The New Yorker’s art editor Françoise Mouly (reflecting on her first experience at an American airport.)
