This Saturday! Laughing Liberally presents Atlas Riffed: A Live-Riffing Of Atlas Shrugged Part One

Well folks,

The GOP has done it. They have embraced their inner right-wing lunatic and shut down our government. A lot of innocent people will be hurt because of their grossly irresponsible actions.

And while it's true that we at Laughing Liberally can't get the government rolling again, we can offer you a night of comedy that bashes right-wing extremism!

Laughing Liberally is proud to present a one night only performance of Atlas Riffed: A Live-Riffing Of Atlas Shrugged Part One on Saturday October 5th!

What exactly is Atlas Riffed?

In the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, Laughing Liberally comedians Josh Bolotsky and Matthew Filipowicz will spend one memorable evening performing a live, second-by-second running commentary on the notoriously awful film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s libertarian screed: Atlas Shrugged: Part One. We’re going to make one of the worst films ever made actually fun to watch - and slowly but surely advance our covert crypto-communist agenda on an unsuspecting public.

Laughing Liberally, which is presenting tonight’s edition of Atlas Riffed, is a comedy show which uses humor and laughter to spread understanding of liberal ideas and advance progressive values. Showcasing the brightest progressive comedians from all across the nation in New York City and on a national tour, Laughing Liberally will save democracy one laugh at a time.

Atlas Riffed: A Live-Riffing Of Atlas Shrugged: Part One will take place

Saturday, October 5th, 10pm
The Tank, 151 W. 42nd Street, 8th Floor
(b/w 6th & 7th) New York, NY 10036.
Admission is only $10.00.
You can purchase tickets online here and check out the Facebook event page here.

Hope to see you there for a great night of Laughing Liberally!
