Robbie Q. Telfer and Shanny Jean Maney, founded The encyclopedia Show in 2008 in Chicago. We are thrilled to share it with Washington DC!
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 different verbal encyclopedia entry each month.
The Encyclopedia Show endeavors to …build an age-integrated community cultivating accidental knowledge and irreverent loving kindness. 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.
Stories with a beat!
Please listen to mine. It’s part of their Sugar & Spice Episode.
