Obscure With Michael Ian Black

Informações:

Sinopsis

Comedian Michael Ian Black is tackling a great work of literature. Actually, Tackling might be too strong a word. More like light caressing plus a lot of complaining. Hes reading the Thomas Hardy classic, Jude the Obscure, out loud and commenting as he goes. Join Michael and friends like Jen Kirkman, Mike Birbiglia, Michael Showalter, and even his teenage daughter, as he discovers the world of Victorian England. Is it a terrible idea? Probably. But its a terrible idea he wants to do with you.
