Unsafe Space: North Korea in NYC on August 27th!

So we might be blown up by nuclear weapons – or will we?

It’s the hot gossip everyone’s talking about these days.

We’re returning to the city that never sleeps (especially under nuclear threat) with a special matinee show you can fit comfortably between brunch-drinking and night drinking: 3-5pm at the Kraine Theater in the Lower East Side.

Best of all, it’s free! Make your reservations here.

Next show on Surveillance June 19th at the Hollywood Improv Lab!

We’re back in LA to talk about a topic that’s always hush hush – surveillance!

* Do intelligence agencies conduct too much domestic surveillance – and do we need to keep an eye on them?

* Why are they leaking – and is it spy vs. spy?

* Do they keep us safe – or is that just what they want you to think, man?

Featuring a fantastic cast who’s willing to wind up on a watch list:

* Professor James Harrigan, former dean of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani who’s written for the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, and more.

* Comedian and former NSA employee Bryan Vokey!

Unsafe Space: Russia hits the Hollywood Improv April 14th!

We’re back to cover arguably the world’s largest Unsafe Space — Russia!

Are they up to no good? Or just misunderstood?
Is the Cold War heating up again?
Are they the boogeyman, or are we just treating them like one?

We get down to business at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club Lab with a panel of comedians and experts who may or may not be Russian agents.

Kira Soltanovich (former Tonight Show correspondent, Showtime special)

Peter Savodnik, founder of Stateless Media, who’s written for the
Washington Post, Time, and the New Yorker.

Sofiya Alexandra (Comedy Central’s This is Not Happening, one of
Playboy’s 50 Funniest Women On Twitter)

Benjamin Graham, USC professor of international relations and co-founder of their Security and Political Economy lab!

Tickets are just $5 with no drink minimum (as un-Russian as that is). Get yours now!

Next Unsafe Space on Campus Free Speech with Debut of Mini-Documentary Silence U Part 2!

We’re back with a special event – a show which combines a topic we’ve long wanted to tackle with a debut of a documentary on it! We’re also heading to the legendary Hollywood Improv Comedy Club’s Lab stage to do it.

The issue of free speech on college campuses has been thrust into the spotlight over and over again, with recent violent clashes over a speaker at Middlebury College following, well, recent violent clashes over a speaker at UC Berkeley and more.

Are students censoring free speech and limiting ideas? Or are these speakers promoting dangerous, hateful ideologies that deserve to be shut down? Where is the line?

Unsafe Space, the show where comedians do standup on controversial topics followed by a discussion with experts and the audience, returns to take these issues head-on in its first show at the legendary Hollywood Improv.

The event will also feature the debut of Silence U Part 2, the sequel to last year’s mini-documentary “Silence U: Is the University Killing Free Speech and Open Debate?” from We the Internet TV, which was featured in USA Today and watched over 400,000 times.

Unsafe Space hosts Lou Perez and Toby Muresianu will join filmmaker Rob Montz, USC law professor Jody Armour and Jenny Yang of MTV’s Beyond the Wall, Nathan Mosher of UCLA’s Roadkill Comedy Show.

It’ll be a can’t miss show and we hope to see you all there! Plus, it’s only $5 – so get your tickets now!

Next Show: What now? A Post-Election Spectacular November 10th!

The election will be over. The hangovers will be fading (maybe). But where do we go from here? Will our wounds heal? What countries should we consider moving to? What tires make the best barricades?

Unsafe Space seeks to answer these questions and more with standup from great comics, discussion with accomplished experts, and your very own questions.

As a special bonus – and to help the healing begin – we’re waiving ticket prices so it is FREE for everyone!

The lineup features comedians:

Helen Hong from Inside Amy Schumer and Last Call with Carson Daly!
Thai Rivera from Fusion’s Roast of America!

With experts:

Caroline Heldman, Occidental College Political Science professor and author of “Rethinking Madame President: Are We Ready for a Woman in the White House?”

UCLA’s John Ray, former analyst for the DNC!

And hosted by Toby Muresianu and Lou Perez of We the Internet TV!

Next show on Health Care April 28th!

This month, we’re fixing the health care system once and for all!

Quincy Jones, comedian with terminal cancer featured on Ellen and with an upcoming HBO special.

Dave Mehreje, winner of the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival’s Best Homegrown Comic award and nominee for Best Standup at the Canadian Comedy Awards.

Unsafe Space tackles Income Inequality this Wednesday, Feb 24th!

The word of the day is wealth redistribution. Well, that’s two words, but the questions remain, such as:

Should we raise the wage or lower the class rage?
Welfare state: good idea or bad university name?
Blame the billionaire class or celebrate classy billionaires?

Coming to the rescue is our latest show, featuring two great guest comedians:

* Betsy Salkind, who’s appeared on the Tonight Show and Comedy Central and is also a former Federal Reserve Bank Examiner.

* Keith Carey, a fixture at the Comedy Store, host of the Mean Boys Podcast, and winner of three SoCal comedy competitions.

Plus two great experts from very different areas:

* James McKeever, the Chair of Sociology and Philosophy at Pierce College. In addition to teaching, he has worked with the Los Angeles County Probation Department on designing prevention and intervention programs for detained youth.

* Andrei Muresianu, director of research at Capital Group, one of the world’s largest investment management organizations, as well as a former hedge fund manager and board member at Para Los Ninos educational nonprofit. He is also the brother of one of the co-hosts and has been selected through sheer nepotism.

Also joining us will be the most important part of the show – YOU, in the crowd, asking the big questions!

The facebook event is here if you want to be a doll and RSVP. 


Tickets are $5 at the door. Parking is available east of the venue, Oh My Ribs Entertainment at 6468 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood.
