‘Screw Everyone’ — with pen firmly in hand

BOK_ScrewEveryone_0409

Ophira Eisenberg is a stand-up comedian, writer and host of NPR’s new weekly trivia show, “Ask Me Another.” But she is also quite the expert in sleeping around. Or was, until she met “the one.”  Hoping from one futon to another? Just practice. As she puts it, “I think it’s my large sample size and many experiences that led me to the right guy.”

What does NPR think about one of their employees writing a book about sleeping around?
I’m certain almost every one at NPR has had sex so they are okay with it. Almost everyone.


Your story has a happy ending (nice marriage to a nice man) but do you have any regrets from your “wild” years?

Nope— in hindsight I’m glad let myself go for it, and I think it’s my large sample size and many experiences that led me to the right guy. I think everyone looks back and wishes they could have treated themselves or a situation a bit better. I couldn’t always laugh at myself then. Thank god I can laugh at myself now.

Why are so many comedians so terrible in the sack? Not that I’m asking from experience or anything.
Of course —  it’s a friend of a friend who wants to know right?! I’m a comedian and from what I’ve heard, I’m pretty decent — at least from the comment cards I’ve received.
But if I had to take a guess, it’s because they’re going for the laugh. My advice is that if you don’t like what’s going in the sack, feel free to heckle.

If there is one thing the Ophira of now could tell 20-year-old Ophira, what would it be?
Stop worrying so much! There will always be another beer and another boyfriend in your future.
