CAT & NAT: #MOMTRUTHS LIVE @ Au-Rene Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Oct 21 @ 7:00 pm

Hilarious best friends Cat and Nat created a massive online community of moms by sharing their ultra-real and just a bit R-rated dispatches from the mom trenches. From what not to eat a few days postpartum (chicken wings) to the most effective ways to avoid post-partum sex, Cat & Nat’s newest book, Mom Truths is everything no one will tell you about having kids.

In tandem with their book release, Cat and Nat are hitting the road to tell never-before-told stories about the stress, guilt, joy, and laundry (oh the laundry!) of being a mom. Join them as they shine a witty light on some of the hardest topics in motherhood, all while celebrating this amazing community of women who come from all walks of life but are united in the idea that we’re all just doing the best we can.

What to expect at each show:

  • A live viewing of a #MOMTRUTHS podcast recording (Cat & Nat will dive deeper into a hilarious excerpt from the book – unique to each tour city).
  • Brutal honesty about motherhood – we get into all the mom confessions that no one ever talks about
  • Shenanigans (we can’t really define what this is, you just have to be there to find out)
  • New friends. Come alone, or come with 20 other people, but we guarantee you’ll walk away with a community of women who have your back through the everyday gong show that is our life.

BILL ENGVALL @ Au-Rene Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Oct 24 @ 8:00 pm

The thing that makes any entertainer successful is the ability to connect with an audience. It’s this quality of sharing the humor in everyday situations that has made Bill Engvall one of the top comedians today – and one of the busiest. A Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, Engvall is best known for being part of the enormously successful Blue Collar Comedy tour and concert films. His first solo album, Here’s Your Sign, is certified platinum and held the #1 position on the Billboard Comedy Chart for 15 straight weeks. It went on to peak at #5 on Billboard’s Current Country Album Chart and reached the Top 50 on Billboard’s Top 200. He went on to win Best Comedy Album at the NARM convention in ’97. His second album Dorkfish was certified gold and had the honor of being ranked #1 on Billboard’s Comedy Chart. All of his following releases debuted at #1 including 15° Off Cool and Aged and Confused. Known for his clean-cut humor and ‘common man’ approach, audiences can expect a night of laughter that’s fun for whole family.

AN EVENING WITH DAVID SEDARIS @ Parker Playhouse
Dec 3 @ 7:30 pm

Join best-selling author and NPR contributor, David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A, and a book signing. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. David Sedaris returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso. Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality.  Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny-it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris’s power of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future. If you love David Sedaris’s cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting into at his live readings.  You’d be wrong. To see him read his own work on stage allows his autobiographical narrative to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout the evening. Don’t miss this event!
