Dan Harmon is a brand. Creator and Producer of cult-hit NBC show Community, Harmon’s name has become a household explicator for an entire genre of comedy, under which his other shows-- Rick and Morty, Great Minds with Dan Harmon, and his podcast Harmontown-- also fall. Harmon’s comedy is bizarre and at times avant garde, it gets raw and it goes there, wherever there is. More than anything, though, the Harmon brand means that something is hyper-intelligent and still hilariously accessible, just like Harmon himself.
Actress, comedian, playwright, and author Lauren Weedman is not okay. Having been a correspondent on The Daily Show, a regular on HBO’s Looking, acted in films like Date Night and The Five Year Engagement, and written and performed 9 solo plays, some would argue that Weedman is doing great. But her books A Woman Trapped In a Woman’s Body: Tales from a Life of Cringe and Miss Fortune: Fresh Perspectives on Having It All from Someone Who Is Not Okay would tell us different. Lauren Weedman didn’t come here to be okay. She came tell it like it is.
Eric Johnson wears a lot of hats. For instance: the hat of touring rock celeb, film scorer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. In one hat he’s been the founder and frontman of indie dreamband Fruit Bats, in another, a member of The Shins, Vetiver, Califone. Still another: touring solo as EDJ. Can’t wait for him to hang his hat with us and sing us home.
