American Comedian Visits Russia, Hijinks Ensue

Audrey Murray is a writer and comedian with a bit of an obsession with Russia.  Not in a mess-with-elections kind of way, mind you. 

But she did spend some time exploring the former republics of the Soviet Union, and got way more adventure than she bargained for. 

Audrey tells the story in her book Open Mic Night in Moscow.  She visits the exchange to explain the topics of kidnappers, garbage bags of money, and wild times in Tajikistan.
