Tea Party Tonight - Episode 5

It’s been one year since Tea Party Tonight! broke into your living room, or more likely, onto a window on your laptop that you minimize when your boss walks by. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve sat in stunned silence at the fact that we’re still allowed to produce a HISTORY-THEMED COMEDY TALK SHOW!

Well, we’re back again, ready to squeeze the Old South Meeting House behind the screen of your phone for the 248th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Join host Rob Crean for person interviews, live sketches, and monologue jokes so fresh you can practically smell the writers. (Please don’t smell the writers.)

Don’t miss it!
