Atlas Obscura Live!
Atlas Obscura Live!
Hello New York fans!

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 the website's monthly theme.

It's time again for another Atlas Obscura LIVE! Last time we sold out while we explored the wide world of rivalries, but this time, we're going for straight up SCANDAL! Join us on Thursday, March 9th, at Union Hall in Brooklyn, where you can learn how to deal with a scandal in the 1800s, answer trivia for prizes, and see Atlas staffers, along with our friends Jim Tews (Felines of New York), Matt Koff (The Daily Show), Greg Young (The Bowery Boys), and more, exploring amazing tales of uncomfortable experiences!
