Jennie Egerdie presents Frog and Toad Are Doing Their Best
Featuring special guests Caitlin Kunkel, Carlos Greaves, and Felipe Torres Medina

Inspired by her timely, hit McSweeney’s pieces “Frog and Toad Are Self-Quarantined Friends” and “Frog and Toad Tentatively Go Outside After Months in Self-Quarantine,” writer and humorist Jennie Egerdie brings her wry, witty, loving satire of Arnold Lobel’s famous amphibian friends to Greenlight’s virtual stage. Through Frog and Toad, Egerdie points out the anxieties woven into our everyday existence over the past year and counting, from our well-meaning (but often-failed) attempts at self-care to our struggles to balance the gifts and burdens of technology. But despite their daily frustrations and existential concerns, they know that having a friend to share life’s burdens makes even the darkest days brighter. Egerdie is joined by friends and fellow multidisciplinary comedians Caitlin Kunkel, Carlos Greaves, and Felipe Torres Medina for a much-needed evening of commiseration, laughter, and celebration.
