Big news: we are no longer recording new episodes of Unsafe Space.
On the bright side, I (Toby Muresianu) will be starting a new show. It will have some of the best elements of Unsafe Space: Stand-up on big issues, discussion with experts, and your questions. However, we’re taking it to the next level and streamed it on – and taking questions from – the internet, so even you folks who live far away from our venues can join in on the fun.
It’s called Up Close & Political and will be a monthly live show at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club and streamed on our facebook page (and possibly other places – follow the show on twitter for updates).
There will also be an in-studio live stream with comics and experts getting into the biggest issues of the week with viewers. A once a month show isn’t enough time to cover a news cycle that somehow seems to span 36 hours a day, and I’m excited to get more funny and interesting people on the show.
However, it is a little sad to leave Unsafe Space behind. A huge thank you to everyone who attended, listened to, performed on, or (praise be upon you and may the angels sing your name) rated the show on iTunes.
Here’s to ends and new beginnings. Thanks and hope all your ideas remain unsafe.
We’re returning to Hollywood on the back of hurricane-force winds to answer pressing questions on climate change!
Is global warming happening? Or it the political atmosphere just getting more heated?
Should we change our behavior, or just make margaritas?
Can we agree on a climate agreement?
We have a Category 5 lineup, including:
Jon Christensen of the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and author of ‘Bending the Curve’: Can We Flat-Line Global Warming by 2050?”
Dr. Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics Center and author of Climate Change Reconsidered II!
Lori Weiss, comedian who has worked for both E! and the EPA!
Bryan Dey, comedian who’s performed at the Laugh Factory, Comedy Store, and comedy clubs all over the country!
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.
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!
* Comedian Sammy Obeid – seen on Conan, America’s Got Talent and more!
