The Gist’s first-ever live show, featuring comedian Samantha Bee, storyteller Matthew Dicks, economics reporter Adam Davidson, radio legend Zoe Chace, political writer Harry Enten, and music writer Chris Molanphy. Plus, audience members will be able to submit their own “Is That Bullshit” questions to the New Yorker’s Maria Konnikova, who will have to rapidly vet the research onstage using her phone. And expert bartender, Chris Wertz, will be on hand, mixing drinks for audience members. We’ve even lined up a top-secret, special music guest. (Hint: Mike Pesca adores this musical guest so much he has memorized and often recited lyrics on our show. [Bonus hint: Not Bruce.]) As with every episode of The Gist, it will end with the Spiel.
