"Some like it hot."
"We're getting hot, hot, hot."
"It's not so much the heat as the humidity!"
Hot is a pretty flexible word in English. Do we mean temperature, spicy, sexy, or stolen? Turns out, yes - we mean all those things. This month's Pulp Non-Fiction will feature 4 performers, from 4 countries, each with a story on a different version of hot. As the temperatures dip outside, we will be turning up with heat inside.
Pulp Non-Fiction, World-Wide Comedy's on-going series of true stories told in a funny way turns up the heat on December 12, at Proza. Doors open at 7:30 and show time is 8:00 pm.
