Catch Erin Gibson Oct 8 at BookPeople
SXSW alumni Erin Gibson will read and crack jokes at BookPeople on Monday, October 8, at 7:00 pm. She’s celebrating her new book “Feminasty,” which is her nickname on her podcast “Throwing Shade.” The Emmy-nominated Gibson also works on a Funny or Die web series and created the long-running “Gay of Thrones” TV show starring her real-life hair stylist, Jonathan Van Ness. Additionally, Gibson does a pretty mean Ivanka Trump impersonation.
Her collection of make-you-laugh-until-you-cry essays explores the insane things women put up with. Who can’t use a little humor with our well-deserved outrage?
Speaking of humor, learn more about SXSW Comedy 2019. With day time panels and event March 8–12 and nightly shows March 13–16, SXSW Comedy showcases rising stars, established greats, and surprise guests. All badges, Film and Music Wristbands are welcome to all SXSW Comedy events.
