PROMOTIONAL EVENT DESCRIPTION Spit Take Comedy Series: Erin Markey and Emily Bate

Erin Markey has “laser-beam eyes, a hair-raising singing voice, and an intense, almost predatory sexuality” (The New Yorker). Markey is a “magnetic diva” (New York Times), one of Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People (Brooklyn Magazine), and they* want to tell you some stories. Comprised of Markey’s signature story-driven stand-up and scored by sensual homemade pop, Markey presents an intimate musical conversation between what Markey thinks they can’t have and how she’d have it if she could. Along with bandmate Emily Bate, they sacrifice their lives to transform personal humiliations into naked feminist hope. *Like so many people, Markey uses language to both affirm and expand her sense of self. She currently prefers to use both “she/her” and “they/their” pronouns.
