You know when your train is f*cked – this is the show that tells you WHY.
This month's show: The B/D/F/M! It's the line we all love to hate, because it's truly terrible! One of the BDFM lines, we won't say which one, has scored worse in one-time records over the last decade *COUGH THE F LINE COUGH COUGH* and we started to wonder – why?! Buckle up, sweethearts – we're heading downtown, and if you get on the wrong train, you're going to make local stops until the day is done.
Doors 6:30pm / Show 7:00pm
Tickets $15 adv / $20 door
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Get on board for a deep dive into the history of the MTA. Whether you love it, hate it, or want to compose more informed rage-tweets about it during your next 20 minute delay – we’ve got you covered. Your hosts Meg Pierson (TEDx, Alchemy Comedy) and Justin Williams (City College, SirusXM), along with a mysterious anonymous ghostwriter, will conduct our show through the twists and turns of history; revealing unbelievable stories, subway life-hacks, and truly upsetting details about our subway system.
Meg Pierson: A Brooklyn resident, Meg co-founded Alchemy Comedy Theater in South Carolina. In addition to helping to write and produce the pet health video series Cone of Shame, Meg travels internationally teaching improv workshops at veterinary conferences – she isn’t a vet but if your cat’s peeing outside of the litterbox it’s probably a UTI. She’s a two-time emcee of TEDx Greenville and currently hosts Versus at Caveat every second Saturday. In her free time, she offers people jobs at Axiom Law.
Justin Williams is an Assistant Professor of History at the City College of New York. Justin is also a comedian that has been featured on Comedy Central’s Jokes.com, Mashable, SiriusXM Radio, The Elite Daily, Men’s Health Magazine, The Kansas City Star, ‘Morning Buzz Live‘ on VH1, ‘Trial by Laughter’ on Comcast, ‘Laughs’ on Fox and ‘The Comedy Show Show’ on Seeso.
