One Night in Heaven
with Maeve Higgins

Featuring Special Guests Elna Baker, Mehran Khaghani,  Dr. Nan Wise, and Michelle Wolf

Tuesday, December 15  | 7:30 pm

“A sly Irish lass…an international favorite…bright, awkward and full of jittery little whimsies.” – Time Out New York

"Higgins is rarer than a blessing of unicorns...she is original and relatively calm, her observations are pithy, her wit delicate, her persona oddly alluring and deftly honest." - The Irish Times

From Cork via Harlem comes Maeve Higgins, star of page and stage, with an all-new variety show featuring an eclectic and invigorating clutch of guests. Only the wisest voices, freshest thinkers, funniest moments, and best stories will make it past her gates into One Night in Heaven.

Bursting onto the New York comedy scene this year with shows across the city and appearances on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and National Geographic’s Startalk, Higgins is the most exciting comedy voice to emerge from Ireland in a generation. She has just been named a 2015 Woman of Influence by The Irish Voice newspaper for her comedy work as well as her writing—Higgins is author of the critically acclaimed essay collection We Have a Good Time, Don’t We?

One Night in Heaven features a different theme each month—October sees us savoring comedy and lore around food, November pinches our cheeks as we pinch our pennies and get down to real-talk about money, and December sees love rule the day…and night. Special guests will be announced.

In October 2009, Penguin Books published her book The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance which chronicles her experience as a young, single Mormon living in New York City.

 

Mehran Khaghani is a standup comedian, emcee, actor, event producer, upstart, social advocate, serial yeller, trouble-maker, love-spreader, line-pusher and brain to be reckoned with who is currently living in the Boston area. Remarkably gay and of Iranian descent, Mehran has a well earned reputation as a performer who can make any event a raucous, joyous, memorable success.

 

Nan Wise is a licensed psychotherapist, certified sex therapist, board certified clinical hypnotherapist, and certified relationship specialist with three decades of experience. Her research has attempted to address gaps in the scientific literature regarding the neural basis of human sexuality, and has as a result, garnered international attention.
