Mouth to Mouth Open Mic

We know- we can’t believe it’s time for another one of our lavishly funny Open Mics! This month we are delighted to host talented singer/songwriter Chris Grace as well as sassy documentarian ManSee Kong. Chris’s seductive vocals will knock you flat and ManSee Kong’s sharp chops will glue you to your seat. Our favorites and yours, comedienne Jen Kwok and novelist Ed Lin will be MC’ing and pumping you up! Booze, books and you; our perfect Friday night!

Chris Grace is a familiar face on Cold Soda, The Faculty, Starkey & Grace, Hello, and Baby Wants Candy. He’s a contributor for College Humor and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. In days of yore, he was a founding member of the PIT house teams Boldfaced LIAR and Fancy Dragon and went to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

ManSee Kong: Currently an MFA Film Candidate at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, ManSee Kong is best known for her documentary, Here to Stay, which portrays the effects of Manhattan Chinatown’s gentrification through the lens of tenants awaiting the results of an anti-eviction lawsuit. Mansee aims to create films that expose the struggles and beauty of underrepresented communities as well as the inspirational commitment of organizers fighting for justice.
