Wits Announces Spring Season

Wits is returning this spring for another series of evenings that engages actors, comedians, musicians, and authors in skits, interviews, and performances that feel like a mashup of SNL, Comedy Bang Bang, and A Prairie Home Companion.

This upcoming season kicks off on February 27 with Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet. This spring will also feature an installment at the Guthrie, and a performance in April at Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Festival in Nashville. The complete lineup is after the jump.
