Venue was very nice, but having to purchase 2 drinks (or food) each made the ticket pricey. A little hard to find-Woodfield is a big place.

Greg Behrendt, the headliner, was great! His warm up was not too good and the MC was hot and cold. Service was great. Food.... Okay...might want to eat before instead of there. I would definitely go again.

Description

Comedian Greg Behrendt is the co-author of the best-seller about relationships He’s Just Not That Into You. Co-authored with Sex and the City story editor Liz Tuccillo, the book became the publishing phenomenon of the year after its release in September 2004. The book shot to the No. 1 slot on the best-seller lists worldwide, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Oprah Winfrey devoted two shows to Greg and the book’s simple, but powerful message. Behrendt also made numerous television appearances. After a fierce bidding war, New Line Cinema acquired the film rights to He’s Just Not That Into You with the co-authors penning the script.

In 2005, Behrendt, with his wife and co-author Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt, released a follow-up relationship book through Broadway Books/Random House. Offering straight talk, tough love and hilarious (yet useful) tips on how to survive and get over breakups, the book, titled It’s Called a Break-Up Because It’s Broken, immediately jumped to the top of the book charts again. The book climbed the best-seller lists, including the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

Performing his first stand-up sets in his early 20s, Behrendt spent the first six years of his comedy career thinking of stand-up as his side gig as he slugged it out in a series of doomed alternative rock bands. He made the decision to quit his band (after they fired him) and devote his full-time efforts to becoming a successful comic. Within a year, Greg had filmed his highly praised HBO special, Mantastic, a hilarious look at gender stereotypes and what it really takes to be a man. Behrendt was a consultant for three consecutive seasons on HBO’s Sex and the City in which he brought his original male point-of-view to the writing staff.

He was named by Variety in 2001 as one of the “10 Comics to Watch.”
