What’s a Raplaughapallooza, you ask? Simply put, it’s half rap and half stand-up comedy, with just a smattering of “apallooza,” which is a rare equine fungal infection (vaccines will be administered at the door).

Saturday, prep for Comic-Con with SuicideGirls’ American Apparel Pre Comic-Con Cosplay PARTY with Bubble Punch!

Thursday at 7:30 show off your knowledge at What Do You Know? Star Wars!

A short time from now on an improv-comedy quiz show not too far away…

What do 70,000 people in Australia, 21,000 in Canada, 53,000 people in New Zealand, 14,000 people in Scotland, and 390,000 people in England and Wales all have in common?

In 2001, on their country’s official census, they all put ‘Jedi’ as their official religion.

The improv-comedy quiz show, What Do You Know?, is going to the Dark Side with an entire show dedicated to Star Wars!
Hosted by Steve Frech, our panelists will match wits in hilarious Star Wars themed rounds such as “Less is More,” “Darth Vader: Ultimate Badass,” and others that will examine the science, the sorcery, and the absolute lunacy behind one of the most beloved film series of all time.

And the best part is… we’re going to pretend the prequels never happened!
May the Force be with you… You’re gonna need it! Featuring special guests Andre Hyland, Clinton Pickens, Rob English, and Adam Sauter!

$8 in advance, $10 at the door!

Thursday at 9:00, check out FitzDog Radio!
