Literati: A Comedy Show About the Greatest American Novels Never Written
Literati is a night of comedians in character performing hilarious readings. Sophisticated, satirical, and sometimes wigs. Do you ever leave a comedy show saying "Hmm that was pretty funny but not enough reading.." Well then this is the show for you!

And your hosts Colin O'Brien and Michael Wolf love to read! They've read upwards of one books between the two of them and now they want to share that love of literature with you!
