Julie Klausner: Medleys & Other New Variants (in LA)

There are two things we know about human beings to be true. First that is in our nature to crave variety, as found in medleys both musical and vegetable. And second, that we, as a curious species, are conditioned to ask questions. Such as: did you know Elvis Presley was a huge Monty Python fan? Is it true that Kate Bush wrote a Silence of the Lambs musical? (No, but wouldn’t it be neat to hear a song from it if she had?) Do you miss Stephen Sondheim and Michael Nesmith, and would you like to hear their songs again, sung surprisingly well by a comedian with a podcast who created an iconic TV show? Or are you just sick of staying in your home without an extraordinary reason to go out again? Julie Klausner (Difficult People, other stuff) is back for three nights only to regale you with clever medleys (clevleys?), original songs, and old favorites in her iconic rock ’n roll comedy extravaganza. The banter will be sharp and the music will be loud: come to the cabaret.

Writer and Actress Julie Klausner’s Home Has Dessert-Themed Wallpaper, Her Cat’s Name in Neon, and More

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission. If you haven’t watched “Difficult People” on Hulu, stop reading this tour and go watch an episode or 28. Its cancellation after only three short seasons is one of the greatest travesties of modern entertainment history, in my humble opinion. I’m not sure if anything has made me laugh half as hard since I binged the entire series as soon as it premiered. Actress, podcaster, and writer Julie Klausner created, wrote, and starred in “Difficult People,” which alone makes her a favorite to me. But she’s a prolific creative person: She wrote the book, “I Don’t Care About Your Band,” and acted in shows like “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” “Fosse/Verdon,” “Big Mouth,” and more. And in an age where every comedian seems to have finally decided to wade into podcasting, Julie’s a veteran, having started podcasting way back in 2011. Most recently, Julie co-hosts a podcast called “Double Threat” with Tom Scharpling. And of course, the woman writes really smart, really funny stuff. (Her Twitter feed is gold, by the way.) “I spend my workdays writing all kinds of things, including screenplays and essays and pitches and scripts, and, of course, angry letters to corporations that discontinue my favorite cereals,” she reports.
