A monthly comedy experiment from Dana Gould. On the 3rd Thursday of each month, Dana scratches another item off his comedy To-Do list. One month a carnival, the next a Spook Show, or a two-man “monologue-off,” or three robots fighting six gorillas, or, or, or… This month: Former Simpsons producer Dana and reigning Simpsons stalwart Matt Selman some provide a behind-the-scenes look at some of their favorite episodes, as well as… dirt! Who punched a box? Who punched a wall? It’s all here. Like a DVD commentary you can touch and smell!
Tix here:  $8 in advance, $10 at the door


BTW. Matt Selman is the writer that gave us one of the raddest bragging rights ever by putting Meltdown Comics into the Simpsons in the episode Husbands and Knives!
