We all fail—some of us more than others. So why not get some funny people together to talk about it? In this first-ever live edition of Lifehacker’s popular podcast “The Upgrade,” we’ll sit down with comedians Chris Gethard and Akilah Hughes, as well as Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings, co-hosts of Gimlet’s “The Nod,” about their notable and most hilarious failures. And we’ll play games, some of which may include drinking. If you’ve ever failed at anything, this is the show for you. And if you’ve never failed, we don’t want you there, you weirdo.
Front Bar opens at 4:30pm
Please note this event will be mixed seated/standing. Arrive early for best seat selection.https://www.thebellhouseny.com/event/1787334/

About Lose Well: "A laugh-out-loud, kick-in-the-pants self-help narrative for anyone who ever felt like they didn’t fit in or couldn’t catch a break—comedian and cult hero Chris Gethard shows us how to get over our fear of failure and start living life on our own terms."
