May 19th at 8pm - 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. Subscribe to Harmontown on ITunes today!
