Overview

Humorist and four-time Emmy award-winner Randy Cohen joins us to host his live podcast, an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.

Guests are drawn from a range of New York life including politicians, artists, thinkers, and academics. Past guests have included Paul Shaffer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maya Lin, Laurie Anderson, Andy Borowitz, A.O. Scott, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Julianne Moore.



THE APRIL 26 PERSON PLACE THING FEATURES:

Martin Hayes, Irish fiddle player, member of supergroup The Gloaming

Howard Wolfson, former Bloomberg Deputy Mayor, renowned national political strategist

This evening is presented as part of the 2018 Martin Hayes residency at Irish Arts Center.



“Richly entertaining…a talented satirist”
