Ever been to a live broadcast of a radio show? Our guess is no, since the heyday of such events was more than 75 years ago. In that case, the L.A.–based show The Thrilling Adventure Hour may be your only chance to experience a humorous take on an old-fashioned radio broadcast show, complete with dramatic and comedic segments, fictional advertisements, and song. The show comes to NYC for one night, featuring performers Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, John Hodgman, James Urbaniak, and Marc Evan Jackson, all of whom you know from shows such as Criminal Minds, The Office, Key and Peele, and The Daily Show. Don’t miss the chance to see this gem while it’s in NYC, or you’ll have to wait until the next time you end up in Los Angeles.
