OMNIBUS: A Show About Comics

November 17, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| $12

OMNIBUS is a live-lit comedy show that takes a deep dive into some of your favorite (and not so favorite) comics. Hosted by Stephen Winchell and Shawn Bowers and featuring a cavalcade of guest contributors, the show mixes comics history, business, multimedia and memory into an hour-long rollicking retrospective. And best of all, no comics knowledge is necessary to enjoy!

In this edition, we’re exploring the world of all ages comics! What is it about Scrooge McDuck that made his classic comics so classic? How is it that AOL was at the forefront of the webcomics movement back in the 90s? And screw kids, are there comics for old people too? Is that even a thing? We (and our merry band of special guests) will answer these questions and so many more!

FREE for iO students & performers $12 General Admission
