Selected Shorts, the acclaimed short story series broadcast nationally on public radio, has released a 3-disc set of witty short fiction entitled Even More Laughs. Recorded live from Symphony Space in New York City, the Selected Shorts program pairs celebrated authors with prominent actors reading their work, and the CD collections draw from some of the most memorable performances.
The Even More Laughs collection includes performances by Stephen Colbert, Alec Baldwin, Robert Sean Leonard, Parker Posey, Christine Baranski, and more. It features writers such as Pulitzer Prize winner Philip Roth, T.C. Boyle, Saki, and Miranda July. Most of the stories aired on public radio during the weekly broadcasted Selected Shorts, but Alec Baldwin’s reading of Julia Slavin’s Covered was considered too risqué for the airwaves, and therefore makes its nationwide debut on this CD. Even More Laughs is the first time that these stories have been released as a collection.
Even More Laughs is the follow-up to the hugely popular Just for Laughs, another CD from the Selected Shorts library. Other titles include Timeless Classics, A Touch of Magic, Whodunit?, For Better or Worse, American Classics, and many others.
Selected Shorts is an award-winning, one-hour radio program featuring readings of classic and new short fiction, recorded live at New York’s Symphony Space and on tour around the country. Each week on public radio stations nationwide, great actors from stage, screen, and television bring short stories to life. One of the most popular series on the airwaves, this unique show is hosted by Isaiah Sheffer and produced for radio by Symphony Space and WNYC New York Public Radio, and distributed by PRI. Selected Shorts is broadcast on 143 public radio stations nationwide for 300,000 listeners weekly. The podcast has over 300,000 iTunes subscribers.
