Greg Mania is a writer, comedian, and award-winning screenwriter. He has been published all over the internet and in print at The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, O, The Oprah Magazine, PAPER, HuffPost, Out, BOMB, Electric Literature, and so much more. He is also the recipient of the Grand Prize of the Fourth Annual Stage 32 Comedy Writing Contest.
His debut memoir Born To Be Public chronicles what it’s like to be young and a hot mess living in New York City. While the book is hilarious, he also touches on serious subjects that brings the perfect balance to the memoir. Born To Be Public is big, fun, and gay.
Adam Vitcavage is joined by Greg Mania to talk about his memoir Born To Be Public. The two talk about the hustle it takes to write, mental health, and his parents reading his rather revealing book.
