The Paper Machete Show
Every Saturday afternoon at the historic Green Mill, Christopher Piatt hosts a variety show where comedians, musicians, academics, journalists, playwrights, live-lit performers and others bring to light current events and pop culture through their preferred media and bring down the house. It’s an extremely well-curated show that has featured big names like Janeane Garofalo, Paul Brittain and Rondi Reed, has showcased local greats like Samantha Irby, and gets cameo appearances by regulars like Chad the Bird, the creation of puppeteer and actor Josh Zagoren. A most entertaining way to keep up with the times and pass an afternoon.
