August 9: TONY Phoney

There's only one word to describe this Thursday's Liar at Time Out New York Lounge: Five dollar admission. I mean three words.

Our first show at TONY Lounge will be guest hosted by the incomparable and inscrutable Ophira Eisenberg while I join three other storytellers trying to put one over on you. Please come listen, drink, seek truth and win a t-shirt.

Thursday, August 9 @ 10:00pm
340 West 50th Street (bet 8th & 9th Aves) $5.
