Producer Courtney Wheeler is psyched to bring the series back to Jersey City. "The human experience is rough but also hilarious," she said. "It's important for me to openly support female artists of color and all our complexities. Luckily enough, I live in a community that feels the same way."
In the past, That One Night has featured hilarious women of various backgrounds including Ritu Chandra, Grisel Cabrera and IFC's Samille Ganges (I Was an Asshole); Marcela Onyango, Whitney Chanel Clark and IFC's Amanda Levie (Desperate); Nihara Nichelle and Kara Lindsay (Proud).
That One (Effed Up) Night will be on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 8 pm at P.S. Wine Bar, located in the basement of Pet Shop Bar, 193 Newark Ave., Jersey City. Entry is FREE! For more information, see our Facebook event.
