THURSDAY

Infinite Jets
Thursday, December 1 at The Annoyance Theater, 9 pm: $10. 

Surely many of you have taken a crack at reading David Foster Wallace’s behemoth of a novel Infinite Jest; perhaps some have even gotten through the entire thing.

Comedy duo Marina Tempelsman and Nicco Aeed (featured on Comedy Central, Funny or Die, and UCB) kick off a residency at The PIT with a five-hour marathon of murder and mystery. You know, the relatable stuff. Consisting of eight 30-minute episodes presented back to back in the style of radio serials, the episodes feature laughs, suspense, and a live Foley artist. And don’t worry, there’ll be breaks between episodes so you can refresh yourself with some drinks.
