Join us for CLANGING With Josh & Dion TONIGHT at 10pm at the NYC Improv Festival!

"CLANGING" refers to a mode of speech characterized by association of words based upon sound rather than concepts. For example, this may include compulsive rhyming or alliteration without apparent logical connection between words.

JOSH RADNOR (How I Met Your Mother, Liberal Arts) and DION FLYNN (The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon) have been clanging together (almost daily) for more than 15 years. If you love language, improv and talking about the spirituality of nonsense — you must be here for the stage premiere of this compulsively hypnotic pursuit.

The NYC Improv Festival is a celebration of improvisation from all across the world.  Get your tickets now!  Shows start at $10 and Festival Passes are only $60.

The third annual NYC Improv Festival kicks off tonight at 7pm here at The PIT! See you soon!Click here to check out the great line-up!
