The Lethal Lottery is back! Randomly selected teams (comprised of comedians that might not know each other) have one week to prepare a comedy set.

Last month, the first Lethal Lottery Champions were crowned when Joe Rumrill & Marnie The Dog narrowly defeated the teams of Fabrega & Fiddyment and Soloner & Grunerud. Who will be part of this LETHAL LOTTERY?

  • former Lethal Lottery Champion Joe Rumrill & George Gordon
  • Chris Gethard & Lorelei Ramirez
  • Charlie Hankin & Nick Naney
  • Julia Johns & Tynan DeLong
  • J.D. Amato & Sam Taggart
  • Conner O'Malley & Jo Firestone

John Gentle is a very erotic man. While he is known as a poet (2010 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival), he has been dabbling in longer pieces. At this week’s Tuesday Special, John Gentle debuts new pieces, mostly salacious in nature, but occasionally deeply sad and lonely! You’re gonna hate it.
