The Roast of Your 15 Year-Old Self
Some of NYC's funniest comedians come together for one night only to roast the one person everybody loves to hate: themselves at 15. With photos, old diary entries, and the occasional angst-filled musical number, The Roast Of Your 15 Year Old Self is a laugh riot guaranteed to make you feel better about all the embarrassing things you did as a teen.

David has produced and hosted events venues like Littlefield, The Bell House, Union Hall, Ace Hotel, The Duplex, and The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.
