A Comedian and A Philosopher Walk Into A Bar

The Alliance Theatre is partnering with the Center for Ethics at Emory University to present a series of post-show dialogues after select performances of EVERYBODY.

Hosted by Atlanta-based comics David Perdue, Lace Larrabee, and Katherine Blanford, each dialogue invites a guest philosopher to talk about the meaning of life, our relationship to death, and everything in-between.  

Join us at the North Alcove Bar for some seriously funny conversation with theologians and interfaith leaders, ethicists and philosophers, therapists and love gurus.

The drinking is optional. The laughing is not.
