They say the past is a foreign country. (Trust us, it's a saying!) What they leave off in that aphorism is the fact that the foreign land of Past-zakhstan is a foreign country of constant pranks and goofs. From 1950s America to Renaissance Italy to the Norman conquest of England, our ancestors were all about changing the world AND yoink-ing each other every step of the way.
On this week's episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is LIVE at UCB Sunset with comedians Caitlin Gill, Christine Medrano, and Blake Wexler. They'll run down the all-time silliest nonsense of actual human history. And the audience joins in at the end with some historical pranks and goofs of their own, because our live shows are interactive and fun like that.
Catch our next LIVE episode of The Cracked Podcast on Saturday March 10th at 7pm at UCB Sunset. Alex Schmidt and comedians Emily Heller (Late Night with Seth Meyers), Ian Abramson (Conan), and Zack Bornstein (SNL) will celebrate history's all-time greatest, all-time least-known badasses. Tickets on sale soon, mark your calendars now.
