Head to Head: Brandon vs. BRNDA

"Nothing during Prohibition was better. Literally nothing: the air, the science, the sexual norms, the music, nothing."

You, Me, Them, Everybody Host Brandon Wetherbee on Five Years of Comedy and Sleeping on Couches

You, Me, Them, Everybody host Brandon Wetherbee has had some really good—and really bad—shows over the course of his podcast's five-year run.
The good shows, says the 31-year-old, led him to meet new friends, explore new cities, and snag great jobs (including a stint writing about comedy for Washington City Paper). He’s interviewed musicians, comedians, writers, [...]

ToDo ToDay: VelocityDC, Obits, and The Bentzen Ball

New York’s annual 10-day-long dance blitz is called Fall for Dance. In D.C., the same concept, packed into just three days with 30 local companies, is known as VelocityDC. On opening night, you’ll see more or less traditional work from the Washington Ballet’s studio company and Edwin Aparicio’s flamenco troupe. But the event’s emerging performers [...]

After Assault, Friends Rally to Help General Enthusiast Pat Walsh

On June 22, D.C. resident and self-proclaimed "general enthusiast" Pat Walsh was walking back to his house in Mount Pleasant. It was about 1 a.m., and Walsh had been out late celebrating his birthday with a friend. Just as he was about to reach his house at 19th and Monroe streets NW, "some dudes ran up [...]

D.C.’s Finest Comedy Talk Show, You, Me, Them, Everybody, Turns Three

Speaking with Brandon Wetherbee on the phone is like talking to a good friend—and not only because the 29-year-old is relaxed and witty in an occasionally self-effacing way, but also because his voice is really familiar, if you've listened to his talk show, You, Me, Them, Everybody.
The live show, originally only available through the web before [...]

ToDo ToDay: “Women Who Rock” and Union Market

What do Billie Holiday and Lady Gaga have in common? What about Queen Latifah and rockabilly star Wanda Jackson? Well, besides gender and fame, their influence on a deeply sexist recording industry. The final presentation of the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ 25th anniversary season, “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” traces the [...]

Tonight: David Lynch-Approved Songwriter Daniel Knox at Looking Glass Lounge

If biker rallies, Monday brunch specials, and the Nationals (presumably) getting their asses handed to them by the Phillies aren't enough to fill your Memorial Day, consider closing out the long weekend with a free show by the Chicago songwriter Daniel Knox, who will be playing tonight at the Looking Glass Lounge. The set closes [...]

Far Out vs. Hot Dang, Vol. 25

If Far Out vs. Hot Dang had an awards show, people would get up from their seats, walk to the stage, and give awards to Far Out vs. Hot Dang. Because landing on our Twitter list is easily as good as an Oscar, and we expect some kind of quid pro quo for that shit. [...]

Far Out vs. Hot Dang, Vol. 24

Indeed, Far Out vs. Hot Dang is kinda icky and gross this week. It's not your fault. I mean, maybe it kinda is. Don't be embarrassed.

Will Durkl: "Just got laughed at in CVS for asking where the manilla folders were. They don't carry them obviously"
"The running joke was if you looked up angry black man [...]

Storytelling and the Art of the Talk Show

After reading The War for Late Night, Bill Carter's history of last year's late-night television dustups, why would anyone want to attempt to host a show in a segment of the entertainment industry that is about as welcoming as a knife fight?
But Brandon Wetherbee is talk-show host. The creator and host of You, Me, Them, [...]
