The Ivy is thrilled to welcome Catherine Cohen for a reading and conversation about her new book, God I Feel Modern Tonight: Poems from a Gal About Town. Catherine will be in conversation with Blythe Roberson, author of How to Date Men When You Hate Men. This event will take place on Zoom-- we recommend stopping by Bird in Hand to pick up a bottle of your favorite wine for a cozy evening in.
About the book: Catherine Cohen, the one-woman stand-up chanteuse who has electrified the downtown NYC comedy scene in her white go-go boots, has been posting poignant, unfiltered poems on social media since before Instagram was a thing. A self-proclaimed self-obsessed millennial on the prowl with her beaded bag, she ponders guys who call you "dude" after sex, English-major dreams, true love during the pandemic, and other weighty matters in these captivating short lyrics. "I wish I were smart instead of on my phone," Cohen confides; "heartbreak, / when it comes, and it will come / is always new." A Dorothy Parker for our time, a Starbucks philosophe with no primary-care doctor, this poet and rising megastar is a welcome new breed of everywoman--a larger-than-life best friend, who will say all the outrageous things we think but never say out loud ourselves.
Catherine Cohen, a native of Houston, Texas, is a comedy sensation who has a residency at Joe's Pub and hosts a weekly show at Club Cumming in NYC; she also cohosts the popular podcast about dating, boys, and sex, Seek Treatment. She has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, and The Village Voice, and was named Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. Her many film and TV credits include a role in Michael Showalter's The Lovebirds and Season 3 of High Maintenance on HBO. Follow her while you're young @catccohen on Instagram.
