Cool Shit / Weird Shit
Jul

to Jul 29

Cool Shit / Weird Shit

Every month is a brand new late night conceptual comedy show in which the guests are encouraged to do things that are far from your typical stand up, sketch, or improv. Whether it's playing the Beatles "Abbey Road" all the way through and having comedians perform visual acts to each song, a show where all the material is catered to one of the host's Dad, or a show where each performer has to face their greatest fear live on stage--Cool Shit/Weird Shit has it all. Some of the stuff you see will be cool. Some of it will be weird. All of it will be Cool Shit/Weird Shit.
