The Box Show Season 3 Premiere
The Box Show Season 3 Premiere
Everyone’s favorite intersectional feminist late night comedy show is back for our third season, and this time we’re movin’ on up...to Gowanus. Hello Littlefield! We love you already. The Box Show creator and host Kaitlin Fontana will take you on a Halloween weekend journey deep into the world of women, specifically the everyday Wo-minutiae that females and non-binary people face -- after all, nothing is scarier than the day-to-day life of a woman! Featuring sketches, characters, special guests, and a panel of funny fumans (that’s female humans) talking about the many tiny exhausting, terrifying things that make up their everyday. Boo! Haha! Sigh.

Featuring:
Aparna Nancherla (Master of None, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Comedy Central)
Elna Baker (This American Life, WTF with Marc Maron, NPR’s All Things Considered)
Joyelle Johnson (Lady Parts Justice League, Seeso’s Night Train with Wyatt Cenac)
...and more to come!

With live tunage by:
DJ KRUNK PONY
Plus THREE brand new video sketches, giveaways, and more!
Follow us on Facebook at /WeAreTheBoxShow & Tweet at us @WeAreTheBox for the chance to win FREE tickets!

The Box Show is entirely written, staffed, and created by women and non-binary people. Our motto is FUNNY + IMPORTANT.

You may have caught her on “Last Comic Standing”, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Aspen Rooftop or WTF podcast. Writer and player on W.

Comedienne Maria Bamford says,"She inspires me to remember that if I put in the effort, beautiful results will follow. She’s also really kind, down-to-earth, generous, super-funny, and altogether the kind of artist that I aspire to be."
