They’re baaaack! With special guest, and Moth Story Slam Winner, handsome, handsome Wil Petre.

In their highly anticipated return from Connecticut (did you know that Jenna and Emma went to Connecticut?), Jenna and Emma regale you with fresh stories and jokes. Clear proof that any screened in porch can be a writing retreat. The fruits of their CT writing labors will be on display for your delectation. (Also Jenna now has an Obie and a Drama Desk, yet this show is STILL FREE, so it’s a fantastic deal. -Emma)
