7 Minutes in Purgatory with Ian Abramson and guests Saurin Choksi, Adam Conover, Solomon Georgio, Caitlin Gill, Bobcat Goldthwait and Candy Lawrence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

7 Minutes in Purgatory challenges comedians to perform directly to a camera alone in a soundproof room, while audience members watch a live feed in another room. This social experiment/comedy show offers a chance to watch performers hilariously and awkwardly attempt to do their act without the benefit of audience feedback.

The show is based in Los Angeles, and has featured guests like Hannibal Buress, Kyle Kinane, and Tig Notaro, and host/co-creator Ian Abramson has toured the show around the country, to cities like Chicago, Denver, and Atlanta. The Laugh Button called the show "one of the coolest and most creative additions to the comedy world," and it's been hailed by The AV Club as "hilarious." $20 All Ages
