Live Wire With Barney Frank, Ian Karmel, Aparna Nancherla, And More! says
Live Wire continues our spring season at Revolution Hall with a night of comedy from two of comedy’s fastest rising stars as well as insights from the legendary congressman Barney Frank.

Join us at the next live show! Some of our guests will include:

Barney Frank
Before he retired in 2013, Barney Frank spent 30 years as one of the US House of Representatives' most effective and popular legislators. Ifn 1987, he was the first member of Congress to come out as gay. His latest book is "Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage."

Ian Karmel, Comedian
Before he was appearing on Conan and writing for Chelsea Lately and the new James-Corden-headed Late Late Show, standup comic Ian Karmel told a great, heartwarming story on a little show called Live Wire Radio. We like to think we're totally responsible for his success.

Kevin Allison
You may remember Kevin Allison as "The Redhead Gay" from MTV's cult classic The State, but since 2009 Kevin's been making huge waves in the storytelling world with his funny, daring and often touching RISK! Podcast.

Aparna Nancherla
A standup comic with a decidedly absurdist point-of-view, Aparna Nancherla has appeared on Conan, @Midnight and as a semi-regular commentator on the totally great but totally-canceled-before-its-time Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

Joe Pug
After touring relentlessly for four years, singer/songwriter Joe Pug finally took a breather, and it paid off in spades. His latest release, Windfall has been deemed his best yet by critics who have called him, strangely, a "more urgent, imploring and non-whiny Bob Dylan." They're right. Bob Dylan IS whiney.

More to be announced!
