A Funny Thing: Ophira Eisenberg Scrapes the Bottom of the Sex Barrel


Our story this week: Fresh off bombing her stand up set, Ophira Eisenberg was desperate to turn a bad night into a good one. How to do it? By sleeping with the weird, sad headliner, of course. The guy “who’s entire wardrobe came from a t-shirt gun.” But how weird and sad can things get, really? Very. Things can get very weird and very sad. Mondays, am I right?

Ophira Eisenberg is a comedian and storyteller who hosts NPR’s Ask Me Another. She has a fantastic new book out this week, called Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy.
