According to the Pulitzer website, anyone can nominate anything for a Pulitzer Prize, and Pulitzer Surprises takes advantage of that horrible idea. Eliza Cossio (The Daily Show) and Caroline Schaper (Full Frontal, Letterman) have their favorite comedians perform their submission for a Pulitzer. Then they interview a real-life Pulitzer Prize winner who has actually done something good. At the end of the show the audience will cast their vote on who deserves a Pulitzer, and then it will really be submitted for a Pulitzer Prize. That winner walks away a “Pulitzer Prize Entrant.” Show tapes monthly at Union Hall.

This month Eliza Cossio and Caroline Schaper welcome hopefuls Daniel Spenser, Annie Donley, Kashana Cauley, and interview Sarah Ryley about her real-life Pulitzer.

Featuring Kenny DeForest, Shalewa Sharpe, Will Miles, and hosted by Yedoye Travis
THE ORIGINAL LINEUP: Alex Pyle, Joey Ziegler, Alex Lotito, Andrew Gialanella

THE FIRST LIVE SHOW! Back to the beginning and the very first Rent Party with The Original Lineup! Kenny yells at the band, Shalewa is her amazing hilarious self, and Will leads an inspiring audience sing-along. Yedoye was a party fire (the opposite of a dumpster fire) — hosting solo, singing, and dancing (listen hard). A simpler time that wasn’t at all simple.

Show Recorded July 18, 2016 at Union Hall. Live sound and mix by Alex Nahas. Produced and edited by Shannon Manning.

Shows recorded every month at Union Hall.

Comedians and “scientists” Madelyn Freed (The Annoyance) and Blythe Roberson (New Yorker, The Onion) investigate a new scientific topic each month. From AI to romantic attraction to body decomposition, Madelyn and Blythe give an hour-long lecture with help from NYC’s funniest comedians. At the end of every show, they bring out an actual scientific authority to pester with questions and to tell them where they went wrong.
