Our first live show. Was fantastic. Featuring Ophira Eisenberg, Jermaine Fowler, Micah Sherman and the inimitable (unless cloning is perfected) Zach Sherwin. Listen now! Watch soon, if the video ever gets delivered to me in it's entirety (you know who you are, beloved videographer. Surrender your data.)
