_Heeb_ Storytelling: Writer and Charles Barkley Muse, Jessi Klein

(video after the jump)

Heeb Storytelling had a very special holiday event at Joe’s Pub in New York City last month with seven-minute stories from Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling (Jackie’s Joke Hunt, The Howard Stern Show), Onion writer Aaron Kheifets, standup comedian DC Benny, writer Peter Hyman (The Reluctant Metrosexual), Tony-nominated playwright Lisa Kron (Well) and other clever interesting people.

Here’s a heartwarming tale from Saturday Night Live writer Jessi Klein about some of the men she’s loved over the years and her surprising current crush. If you haven’t seen Klein perform and she still somehow looks familiar, then perhaps you were watching SNL this weekend when host Charles Barkley called her sexy "in a Jewish way."
