Gregg Eisenberg Comedy Reading

April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

Sit or Get Off the Cushion! An Evening of Stand-Up Philosophy

George Burns once said: “A comedian just makes you laugh, while a humorist makes you laugh and think.” And tonight, longtime Boulder County humorist Gregg Eisenberg will make you do all three! Osho similarly said: “The only things in life you should take seriously are the jokes.” Because, like Zen koans of the old masters, the right humor can shed light on the human mind itself. Eisenberg will share original “laughorisms” from his best-selling book “Letting Go Is All We Have to Hold Onto: Mind-Altering Jokes” – and stories that shaped his unique approach to comedic inquiry. “When I want to know what I think about something, I try to write a joke about it.”

*There will be a short reception after the show.*

His best-selling book Letting Go is All We Have to Hold Onto is available for purchase at the Museum store.

“In the bathroom reader category, it’s a definite #2.”

“A show about impermanence that will last forever.”

”For people in no shape for the human condition.”

“A revolutionary approach to maintaining the status quo.”

Gregg Eisenberg Bio: Geographer, musician, and long-time resident of Boulder County, Gregg Eisenberg performs a one-man, multi-media science-comedy show called Even the Earth is Bipolar at planetariums, performs music with The Louisvillains, does a live spoken-word/jazz show accompanied by some of Colorado’s most talented musicians called Homage to the Thief, and is returning to the Museum of Boulder for the 5th time, presenting his “mind-altering” jokes. Read more about him in this front-page feature-story in the Boulder Daily Camera. “We live vicariously, so you don’t have to.”
