Atlas Obscura Live!
Atlas Obscura Live!
It's time again for another Atlas Obscura LIVE! In previous shows, we've delved into the worlds of SIN and SCANDAL, but this September, we're delving into the world of IMPOSTERS! Our live variety show brings our own writers and editors together with musicians, scholars, comedians, performers, and special guests to share wondrous acts and amazing stories, all based around our totally real, and not at all suspicious show theme.

Join us on Thursday, September 14 at 8 p.m. at Union Hall in Brooklyn, where you can learn how to be your own imposter, answer trivia for prizes, and see both Atlas staffers and special guests Aparna Nancherla (CONAN), Todd Robbins (Host of ID's True Nightmares), Jonathan Soma (Brooklyn Brainery), Shalewa Sharpe (Sirius XM) and more as they talk about the wide world of phonies!
