Left Handed Radio: Freddy's Back in '9thmare on Elm Street' Thursday Night

Left Handed Radio presents The Sequel Machine, a monthly live show where 25 writers of all stripes (The Onion, Fast Company, McSweeney's) collaborate on a sequel to one of film's biggest franchises. The catch is that the writers pen one page at a time, and only get to see the page before their own. The results are hilariously twisted and virtually no different than a real sequel.

This month is 9thmare on Elm Street! Freddy Kruger is back in action to slash throats and sling puns.

Thursday, October 4th at 11:00 PM, UCB East Theatre, 3rd Street and Avenue A, NYC. Tickets are $5. Make [...]

Go Backstage at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival with Andy Peters' Wandertown Podcast

Wandertown, presented by CleftClips and Soundcloud, captures a cross-section of festival life with dozens of interviews, clips from shows, and chronicles of Peters’ Portland adventures, from taking a tour of the city with local comic Ian Karmel to hanging at a strip club with Byron Bowers and getting (lovingly) harassed by Todd Glass.

The affable, absolutely [...]
