Pitch! - Playgirl Magazine. Featuring: Gregory Nalbone, David Crabb, Karl Marxxx, Nathan Phillips and Daniel Nardicio

Pitch! is a live storytelling event with a twist. Four fearless storytellers: Gregory Nalbone (Metropolitan Room, Laurie Beechman Theater, Duplex), David Crabb (Ask Me, The Moth, U.C.B.), Karl Marxxx (Int. Drag King Extravaganza, Smithsonian Hirshorn Museum Afterhours) and Nathan Phillips (Dealing With My Feelings, Sex You (I'm Gonna), NPR) perform in front of an audience while simultaneously pitching to a publishing industry heavyweight! Our guest editor Daniel Nardicio (Vice President of Marketing, Playgirl Magazine) will share his feedback and maybe even a possible yes or no on the spot! Willing audience members are also invited to submit a sexy pitch!
Your hosts Greg Walloch and Mark Allen keep it lively and irreverent! Will the performers have what it takes? Will you have what it takes? Witness amazing stories, insightful editorial commentary, and the intense process of being a writer more closely than you've ever imagined. It's time for your big break. What are you waiting for? "Pitch!"
