DEEP-ER-NESS

Nov 10, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

93-atlg

Stand-up comedy, but deeper…er.

Host Joe Zimmerman presents his favorite comedians for stand up sets that explore the more meaningful topics (i.e. philosophy, psychology, religion, environment, economy, death, love, childhood, race, history, social commentary, current events, personal stories, etc). After each set, Joe and the comic sit down for a “deep talk,” in which Joe and the featured comic sit awkwardly close and Joe asks them a few ridiculous questions.
