call to action

Matt and I are chairing this hilarious event for Belcourt Theatre’s nD Festival to directly support their education and engagement programs… and we would love your help! If you feel inclined, please send over your favorite video clips (à la lady falling out of a grape vat / Honey Boo Boo Child). They can be incredibly obscure or terribly popular, we just want to curate the best of the best for this lovely cause. The event will be hosted by the incomparable Chris Crofton and clips will be projected at Third Man‘s state-of-the-art venue. Please join us and get your tickets here!
