May 18th 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 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. And be sure to subscribe to Harmontown on ITunes!

You like stories, but you like being right even more, don't you? Join us and find out if you can really tell if someone is faking it. Featuring Shelby Fero, Kulap Vilaysack, Hannah Friedman, Dominique Whitten, and Emily Heller.
$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
