Even Books: Tinah Feyman’s BEDPANTS

An upside of asking if women are funny is that when the question gets asked, it's usually accompanied by Tina Fey. Fey leveraged time on the Saturday Night Live newsdesk into a perfectly handcrafted TV show, then had the foresight to have her double run for US vice-president. Even Books are invoking the spirit of Fey, along with fellow comedian Sarah Silverman, for Tinah Feyman's BEDPANTS, their turn at the helm of Surry Hills Library's Late Night Library.

BEDPANTS partners Fey's book Bossypants with Silverman's Bedwetter, Silverman's naive persona serving as the appall-ee to the Fey persona's appall-ed. Over the course of the night's comic homage, you can get caricatured as anyone you can think of, provided they're either Silverman or Fey, and see more direct homage in the form of Tinah Feyman sketches and songs. A debate themed 'Women Are Not Funny' will pit the affirmative, unboxed former Chaser writer Kara Kidman, Nadine Cohen and Max Lavergne against the less compliant Shag, Tiny Stadiums star Nat Randall and the Chaser's Chris Taylor. Adjudicating will be Elmo Keep, a woman so in-demand that her work for fashionable blog the Awl is among her lesser-known stuff. Not least, homage to the revivified Alec Baldwin is promised — so, as Baldwin might beg you himself, don't come.

Bedpants is free, but you need to book a place on 8374 6230. Really.
