How to describe Wendy Hammers? Well, for starters, she’s an actress (Curb your Enthusiasm) and stand up comic (Oprah), and live events producer. She is also one incredible gracious lady who makes everyone feel special. Several times a year, Wendy presents Tasty Words™, a spoken word salon she created, curates, and hosts (now in its fifteenth year), that features writers/actors/comedians/published authors telling hilarious, occasionally horrifying and always heart warming stories.
These are themed salons and since Valentine’s Day is coming up, this Saturday evening, February 13th, the theme is All You Need is Love. As Wendy puts it, “these are tasty love stories to fill your heart”. If you are in love, or want to be, or even completely over love, heartbroken, or annoyed that Hallmark made up this holiday, there will be something in this show for you. Each of the truly gifted performers on the bill brings a different and insightful take on the topic of love.
Like all the Tasty Words™ shows in the past, this is a fun, provocative and inspired evening, and features these super talented writers: Cindy Chupack, Emmy-winning writer/producer of shows including Modern Family, Sex and the City, and Everybody Loves Raymond and New York Times bestselling author of “The “Between Boyfriends Book” and “The Longest Date: Life as a Wife”; Tim Bagley (current cast member of TVLand’s ‘Teachers’) Playwright Michelle Kholos Brooks and screenwriter and horror author of “World War Z”, Max Brooks. Also on the program is Katherine Woodward Thomas, recently featured on The Today show with her New York Times bestselling book of “Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After”; Moth Grand Slam winner and author of ‘Please God Let it be Herpes’, animation screenwriter, Carlos Kotkin and last but definitely not least, newlyweds poet and memoirist Elya Braden and artist/writer/educator Jon Pearson.
Every show has a fantastic musical guest and for this one, it’s award winning singer/songwriter and Tasty Words fave, Eric Schwartz. And while you won’t want to miss this show live, especially since Tasty’s new home is the beautiful, 330 seat, state of the art Moss Theater, located on the campus of New Roads School at 3131 Olympic Blvd, Santa Monica CA 90404, Wendy is excited to announce that as of this year, Tasty Words™ is providing content for audible.com and many of our stories will be featured there as well.
