Taped in front of a live audience in Brooklyn, each episode features a roster of stand up comedians and special guests discussing a theme. If it’s anything like the podcast, there will also be conversations about dating, Bono/U2, Michael Fassbender and politics.

You may recognize Jessica Williams from her stint on The Daily Show, The Incredible Jessica James or her Dusen Dusen campaigns. Phoebe Robinson penned the memoir You Can’t Touch My Hair and appeared on the Amazon show, I Love Dick. If you’re unfamiliar with the duo, I highly recommend checking out their podcast before the show. YQY!
