    A Virtual Happy Hour with Sam Irby

    Actor & Writer

    Long before social distancing was a nationwide dictum, writer Sam Irby made it her mission. In this virtual happy hour, Irby will sit down to talk through life in quarantine, using Irby’s new book Wow, No Thank You, as a jumping off point. In a wide-ranging discussion covering everything from the mutinies of the body to what it means to live with a fair amount of panic largely indoors, Irby will unpack the anxieties of our current moment and explore how humor works as a salve above all others.
