Please join host Sofija Stefanovic as she welcomes some of her favorite people for a celebration of immigration!
Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions.
Uncensored on our stage, we bring you:
Rufat Agayev (comedian)
Hasan Agili (the only refugee admitted to the US from Libya in 2016)
George Civeris (comedian)
Mira Jacob (author of graphic memoir Good Talk)
Colm Toibin (award-winning writer, playwright, poet and journalist)
and music from violinist Maria Manousaki
