Standup dramedian R. Eric Thomas is bringing his smash hit, one-man rom-com, Always the Bridesmaid, back to the stage. Thomas, known for hosting acclaimed storytelling series The Moth and for previous sell-out runs like Will You Accept This Friend Request?, gives his take on dating disasters, love, and the notion of marriage in an age and state where gay people can actually get married now. Delving into the religious and individual views on marriage and what it means to the gay community, Thomas’s show will make you think, yes, but most importantly it’ll make you LOL.

The Philadelphia performer’s show was so well-received at GayFest 2012 and 2014 that Thomas revamped it with all-new material, including the recent Pennsylvania marriage equality vote. Now it returns for two nights only to L’Etage October 7th and 12th. The October 7th show is a double-header with The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret, while the October 12th show bookends Philadelphia’s OutFest in a celebration of National Coming Out Day.

Thomas has been gracious enough to send us three pairs of tickets to the October 12th show to give out to G Philly readers. Here’s how to win: The two readers to email with the subject line “I Heart Eric!” will win tickets to the Sunday, October 12th show at 7:30 p.m.

UPDATE [10/3/2014, 12:24 p.m.]: This contest has closed, but you can still snag tickets to the October 7th and 12th shows here.
