Last night I attended the This American Life live taping at NYU, which was “beamed via satellite” to movie theaters across the country. I listen to TAL religiously, so seeing regular contributors Starlee Kine, Mike Birbiglia and Dan Savage (of Savage Love fame) in person was a true thrill. Oh, and Joss Whedon was there, too, singing – yes, singing – some of the DVD commentary for his fantastic Internet musical ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.’ Each act made me laugh hysterically, and I cried like a baby during Dan Savage’s devastatingly touching story about his mother.
If you’re a fan of This American Life, or if you’re a fan of having a good time, I highly recommend going to the encore presentation on May 7 at a theater near you.
