The Blackout Diaries 

When: July 15 and Fridays. Continues through Aug. 5 2011
Price: $10
Comedian Sean Flannery says he's come perilously close to getting himself killed no less than ten times. Even more astonishing than the number of near-misses, however, are the circumstances surrounding them. There was the day his car careened off one highway ramp and deposited him, miraculously, on another. And the episode where he and his friend nearly burned themselves alive trying to steal the bulb out of a street light. These adventures and more were recounted last year in Never Been To Paris, Flannery's one-man show chronicling the crazy life he’s inadvertently led. Now he aims to fill in any gaps with The Blackout Diaries. The evening starts with him and his three guests--C.J. Sullivan, Prescott Tolk, and another comic who can't be named for legal reasons (really)--sharing their true tales. Flannery will reprise some of Paris, Sullivan will talk about being a professional poker player, Tolk will discuss his mob-connected accountant, and the anonymous one--well, who knows? Then Flannery will moderate an audience Q&A. It's a comedy show starring the audience as well as the comics. Should be a perfect vehicle for Flannery's jovial, candid sensibilities. --Steve Heisler
