(CANCELED) Not Naudies Party


Hosted by Johnny Heller, Melissa Exelberth, and Jeffrey Kafer.

We LOVE the Audies and think everyone should go to celebrate their fellow narrators and our business!

But we also know that not everyone can go for whatever reason.

If that’s you, then join us in celebrating that none of us were nominated! And since this becomes the defacto After-party, you get to share the air with the people who WERE nominated. How cool is that?

This is the event that many say is the best time during the week of APAC. We don’t know why. We don’t provide booze or food. We just provide a place. And maybe that’s the appeal. No pressure, no schmooze environment. Just fun award-less people.

So join us for one more round of merriment before we all fly out and go back to the land of things are not nearly as expensive as they are in NY. Except for me, because I live in LA.

And finally, Buy a shirt! All profits from the sale of OFFICIAL NAUDIES SWAG will benefit the Hispanic Federation and their efforts to aid our fellow Americans of Puerto Rico in the name and memory of our beloved Katy Kellgren.


A message from Johnny Heller:

The history of this event is long and storied, and you should chat with me to hear it all. Jeffry Kafer, Melissa Exelberth and I started it way back when. It really should be renamed because now the Audies are in March and this event has nothing to do with the awards ceremony at all. Still – it’s a great big party at Connolly’s on 45th. It starts around 7pm and ends when the bar closes at 4am…although I’ve never lasted that long. Dress is casual, and they have food and drinks and it’s a really fine time. (And I want to add something – I get nothing for this. Not a dime. I heard some scuttlebutt about that so I want to be clear – I just found the spot and because we fill it up every year, we get it for free and no money comes my way – but Connolly’s does buy me a round now and again.)
