July 6th at 9pm it’s Guy Branum presents Talk Show: The Game Show!

Beloved comedian Guy Branum hosts the ultimate test of banter in a thrilling combination of America’s two least respected television formats. Three guests face off to prove who’s the best talk show guest by plugging, name-dropping, and anecdoteing their way to victory. With guests Diablo Cody (Young Adult, Jennifer’s Body), Sean Patton (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan) & Andy Haynes (Late Night with Jimmy FallonConan). And judges Eliza Skinner (Striking Fashion Police Writer Getting Work Anywhere She Can), Bryan Cook (Striking Fashion Police Writer Getting Work Anywhere He Can), and lead judge Casey Schreiner (Attack of the Show). As always, the keen score-keeping of Whitmer Thomas (Power Violence).

$8 in advance, $10 at the door.

July 7th at 8pm it’s Harmontown!

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 the upcoming 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. It’s Harmontown. It’s awesome. It’s unique. Don’t miss a single week.


July 8th at 8pm it’s Nerdist Open Mic!
