Why Your Train is F*cked: The A/C/E Line

THU // APR 25 // 06:30PM

You know when your train is f*cked – this is the show that tells you WHY.

This month's show: The A/C/E Line! That's right, we're doing a deep dive on everyone's favorite blue line, all the way from faraway Queens to Inwood. You won't believe the drama that it took to get the A/C/E we have today. Whether or not you live on this notorious line, you're bound to have at least a few "This one time, on the C train" stories. Join us in confusion and dismay for this line-specific edition of Why Your Train is Fucked!

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.


THIS MONTH'S SPECIAL GUEST: Aaron Gordon -- Aaron is a senior reporter, Investigations & Technology at Jalopnik and the creator of Signal Problems, a weekly newsletter about the subway. 

THIS MONTH'S BUSKER: Guy Daniels -- Guy Daniels, a native New Yorker, has been playing the guitar for 4/5 of his life (he chooses to remain vague). He grew up on WPLJ and classical music, and is fluent in many styles.


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.
