A night of laughs with Josh Gondelman


Join The Cardigan Connection and (401)j for a night of laughs with Emmy Award-winning stand-up comedian and all around nice guy Josh Gondelman, as we celebrate his new book “Nice Try: Stories of Best Intentions and Mixed Results.” 

In this collection of hilarious and poignant essays (including his acclaimed New York Times piece “What if I Bombed at My Own Wedding?”), Josh celebrates a life of good intentions – and mixed results. His true tales of romantic calamities, professional misfortunes and eventual triumphs reinforce the notion: we get out of the world what we put into it. Whether he’s adopting a dog from a suspicious stranger, mitigating a disastrous road trip, or trying MDMA for the first (and only) time, Josh only wants the best for everyone – even as his attempts to do the right thing occasionally implode.

Tickets include a personalized copy of the book, the show, and a drink. The event takes place on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Askew Bistro & Entertainment Venue, 150 Chestnut St., Providence.
