April 25th at 7pm – Enter Spider: Volume II!

With the first installment of Enter Spider you entered a stand-up show where eight comedians from supernatural realms performed their sets, from a psychic comic calling out hecklers before they heckled, to a PC medium summoning wildly offensive dead insult comics, to a paralyzed vampire without a sex drive. On April 25th, Enter Spider returns with a completely new line up of stand-up characters, all played by Matt McKenna. Come. Embrace the weirdness. Re-Enter Enter Spider. You’ll be happy you did. Featuring performers from Lost Moon Radio and Story Pirates.
