Jessi Klein

Saturday, February 25, 7:30 p.m.

Jessi Klein is the Emmy and Peabody award–winning head writer and executive producer of Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed series Inside Amy Schumer. Growing up gawkish and a late bloomer, Jessi Klein never identified with the conventional standards of modern femininity. Instead she viewed herself as a tomboy who found her voice through comedy. In her outrageously funny and unapologetically candid breakout book, You’ll Grow Out of It, Klein compiles a perceptive collection of confessional essays that offer readers a relatable glimpse into exactly what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
