Seriously Entertaining

“A literary mixtape [with] perfect flow and variety.”
— The New York Times, March 2016

House of SpeakEasy’s flagship program, “Seriously Entertaining,” is an acclaimed series of literary cabarets where authors take the stage to riff and ruminate informally, dinner-theater-style, on the evening’s theme. Since our debut show in 2014, House of SpeakEasy has been proud to feature a diverse range of authors and performers, from Pulitzer Prize–winning journalists to acclaimed novelists and poets, as well as comedians, musicians, and emerging writers.

To purchase copies of performing authors’ books, visit our storefront.

We look forward to returning to our home at Joe’s Pub with our partners at The Public Theater early next year. Until then, you can watch past shows on our YouTube channel, via livestream, and through our podcast. You can also follow us on Instagram where we will be sharing many of our favorite past stories throughout the fall.
