From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy ConradSet List is back from sold-out shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, and a regular run in London. Top comics are given a never-before-seen “set list”of strange and outrageous topics the second they walk onstage, and perform seamlessly as if its the act they normally do, while the audience follows their list on the projection screen. Complete comedy in the moment.

Featuring the never-before-seen set lists of Kumail NanjianiNate BargatzeGreg FitzsimmonsEmily HellerAndy HaynesAndy PetersNeal Brennan, plus a secret special guest. Hosted by Troy Conrad.

What is Harmontown? It’s awesome. It’s unique. It’s one of a kind. It’s something only Dan Harmon (creator of Community and Rick and Morty) and Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) can do. It’s a different show every time and it’s every week. Lucky us! Playing Dungeons and Dragons? It’s happened. Dan Harmon freestyle rapping? Yup, that too. Calling Chevy Chase from stage? Happened…more than once. A celebrity guest? Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs among others have all stopped in. Getting super personal with an intimate audience? Always.

  2. Good blog post. A few things i would like to make contributions about is that personal computer memory needs to be purchased if your computer is unable to cope with what you do along with it. One can deploy two random access memory boards of 1GB each, in particular, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should always check the car maker’s documentation for one’s PC to ensure what type of storage it can take.

A majority of these protective gear are generally model precise since they are made to fit perfectly over the natural housing. You can buy these directly from owner, or from third party places if they are for your laptop computer, however not every laptop will have a cover on the market.

    I have seen a lot of useful factors on your web site about pcs. However, I have got the judgment that lap tops are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a good choice if you often do things that require a lot of power, such as video croping and editing. But for world-wide-web surfing, microsoft word processing, and a lot other common computer work they are perfectly, provided you do not mind small screen size. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
