ToDo ToDay: Michael Ian Black, Foul Swoops, and Hudson Mohawke
Michael Ian Black has had his hands in a lot of cookie jars over the years—first as a member of The State’s comedy collective, and later for his roles in Wet Hot American Summer and the TV series Ed. Even if Black is a little older and slightly less awkward now, expect a few summer camp references to sneak into his set. On Twitter, Black entreated fans to see him live by describing this tour as “overpriced, slightly disappointing comedy!!!” But that’s what you get from Black’s brand of humor—some thought-provoking, well-worded self-deprecation.
