He also wrote on Mind of Mencia and produced and wrote on rapper Pitbull’s La Esquina. Treviño landed in the Nielsen Top 20, with his 1st Showtime comedy special, Grandpa Joe’s Son.

You’ll relate to Moore’s live-swiping, laugh at her reactions, and find inspiration in her ridiculous, random emoji-filled messages to would-be suitors. Whether you’re single or married, the show is a hilarious, sex positive look at all the ways we fumble to connect in a city full of people. Moore also retains a deft touch for kindness and empathy, while still finding the boundless humor in modern dating. It’s also a great show to attend with a date, Tinder or otherwise. If you’ve ever been single before, you need to see this show

Show: Ask Me Another

Venue: The Bell House
Location:
149 7th Street Brooklyn

Time: 7:30pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar… No, it’s not the start of a joke. It’s the essence of Ask Me Another, a rambunctious hour that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host  Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician  Jonathan Coulton.

For an hour, listeners can play along as Eisenberg puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, audience members and special mystery guests, who then takes a turn in the contestant’s chair facing trivia games written especially for him or her. What you’ll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend’s house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes.

Ask Me Another is recorded live at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY.

Ask Me Another is a co-production of NPR and WNYC
