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!

Post-Election Spectacular feat. Helen Hong, Thai Rivera, John L. Ray and Caroline Heldman

We discuss what’s next after the election, why it happened and why they voted the way they did in often-heated, often-hilarious discussion with comedians Helen Hong (Inside Amy Schumer), Thai Rivera (Fusion’s Roast of America), Caroline Heldman (Occidental College Politics professor) and John L. Ray (Former DNC analyst).

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?”

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