The East Van Laugh RioT Presents
The Crossword Show with Zach Sherwin

"@zachsherwin's crossword show brings all the best things together: comedy, crosswords, and hip hop."
(Natalie Portman)

The Crossword Show is a live comedy performance hosted by Zach Sherwin ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," "Epic Rap Battles of History") in which a panel of guest entertainers solves an actual crossword puzzle on stage in front of an audience, with everything displayed on a big screen so the crowd can follow along.

Every time the solvers decipher a clue, Zach launches the show down a rabbit hole that's somehow related to the answer word. There's a multimedia slide presentation, tons of comedy, wordplay, and pop culture trivia, and even a musical element: while the clues work like those in a normal crossword puzzle, they also happen to be rhyming hip hop lyrics.

You'll laugh. You'll be dazzled by the connection between the puzzle's words and themes. You'll even leave feeling like you learned something. And you absolutely do not need to be a crossword enthusiast to be enthralled by this unique, joyful experience!
