The Encyclopedia Show is a live variety extravaganza that commissions local and touring artists and experts from many disciplines to use their individual talents to present a verbal and musical encyclopedia entry each month. Though the show is accredited by the Institute of Human Knowledge and Hygiene, it is our ongoing mission to chafe against logic and proof, find meaning in obfuscation, and wrest truth from fact once and for all. This month, the topic of the show will be fungus in all it's wondrous forms and uses. With presentations on topics like beer made from yeast, the Mushroom Massacre of 1767, and Fungal Sinusitis, we're sure you'll take a lichen to our words and jokes, even if they are in spore taste. Performers and guests include Demetrius AmparanStephanie DouglasReggie Eldridge, Joe MenoTim Baltz Schobert, and Lynda Barry.
