About Approval Junkie
Best known as a regular on NPR's news-based panel show "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" and as a contributor to “CBS Sunday Morning,” comedian Faith Salie released "Approval Junkie: Adventures in Caring Too Much" in 2017. The Emmy-winning media personality returns to her home city to present a brand new one-woman memoir based on the daring compilation of essays, bringing her laugh-out-loud, often tender recollections of the turbulent emotional waters of adolescence and adulthood to the stage for a strictly limited run.
With irreverent humor and charm, Salie regales the audience with tales of a life spent searching for validation. Whether its the pressure of a perfect GPA or undergoing an exorcism in an attempt to save her crumbling marriage and the subsequent struggle to pick the perfect outfit for the divorce, the gifted performer gives the audience an authentic, no-holds-barred look into her very relatable journey to self-acceptance, learning that the only person she ever truly needs to impress is herself.
