Pittsburgh institution, John McIntire, will be hosting three other Pittsburgh institutions this Saturday. The John McIntire Dangerously Live Comedy Show features local journalists, politicians, comics and celebrities saying the kinds of things you usually only hear off the record, but live on stage. The panelists for January’s show are nationally-known forensic pathologist and loquacious talker Dr. Cyril Wecht, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and syndicated award-winning cartoonist Rob Rogers, and our very own Councilman Bill Peduto!

The theme is Incivility Rules:

Lack of civility! When did we all start hating each other?

You see it on the roads with tailgaters. You see it with people who refuse to stop staring at their I-phones to actually speak. You see it in the over heated political discourse. We can’t stand one another. We’re aggressive. We’re dismissive. We’re condescending. (Or maybe that’s just McIntire).

You can expect a thoroughly irreverent and fun time as John and guests riff on the topic. Also, you get a bonus set of “honest absurdity” from featured comedian Gab Bonesso (named “The Best Comedian in Pittsburgh” by both Pittsburgh Magazine and Pittsburgh City Paper).
