Kurt Andersen, Jonathan Coulton, Elephant Larry, &c.: Tickets Still Available!

Filed under: On the Spot   Tagged: , , ,

for The Sound of Young America Live, the live show of the radio show about things that are awesome (that’s their motto, and entirely true), and although the 8 p.m. show is sold out, you can still go at 10 and see these talented people, plus Jesse Thorn, who is like 20 (OK, he’s a little older now) and one of the most talented interviewers on the air anywhere. The guy’s got to be heard, and seen. He’s like the next John Hodgman, but with a squirrel.
10PM Show Lineup
Kurt Andersen is the host of Public Radio International’s “Studio 360,” public radio’s premier arts newsmagazine. He was also the co-founder of America’s last great satirical magazine, “Spy,” and is the co-editor of the new retrospective book, “Spy: The Funny Years.”

Jonathan Coulton
is a comic singer-songwriter who has been heard on The Daily Show and National Public Radio. His sensitive and hilarious songs tell stories of computer programmers and evil robot warlords in love. And other, more normal stuff.

Elephant Larry is a New York-based sketch comedy group who have been acclaimed thusly by El Tiempo de Nueva York: “A hilarious multimedia mix of the deadpan and the maniacal. The sketches call to mind, variously, Monty Python, Kids in the Hall and Second City, yet they don’t feel like knockoffs.”

Andres du Bouchet is a standout in the New York City standup scene. You may have seen him on “Tough Crowd,” or on Comedy Central’s “I Love the ’30s”.

Possibly special guests: We’ve got a little space in the late show for drop-in guests, and have a couple of maybes we can’t tell you about. Maybe we’ll just have Coulton stretch, but maybe you’ll get to see someone awesome.
