Aparna & Jo present: Live & Order! (NYC)

SOLD OUTSerial. Making a Murderer. People vs. OJ. There's nothing hotter right now than true crime. And there's nothing the industry*** loves more than cashing in on what's popular. While Jo Firestone and Aparna Nancherla have neither committed nor solved any homicides as of now, they are totally open to it in the future if their schedules allow. In the meantime, they are both loyal devotees of the fake-but-based-on-true crime industry: Dick Wolf's Law & Order: SVU**. So, for one fine evening, allow them, with the help of some special comedy guests, to pay tribute to the episodic criminal procedural with their own reimagining of the form. At the very least, prepare to walk away with more questions than answers, and blood on your hands. Whose blood? That's for you to decide.

***The entertainment industry, not the murder industry, but good guess.
**Nothing but the worst, most heinous crimes for these two voyeur monsters.
