Join us as we welcome Jena Friedman, comedian, writer, director, and author of the new book Not Funny: Essays on Life, Comedy, Culture, Etcetera from Atria Books. 

In the words of Emmy Award-winning comedian, actor, and author Samantha Bee, "Jena Friedman is brilliant at mining the darkness for a joke you'd never dare say, that makes you jealous you didn't think of it yourself. I am here for every word of this hilarious and much needed book.”
