'A Night at The Jonesonian' is an illustrated lecture that touches on string theory, the Golden Age of Radio, dodos, forcible haircuts, Arthur Miller, a séance, the Oval Office, and more.

Items of audio 'archive'--wax cylinder recordings, dusty reels of audio tape, and more--have been created in collaboration with some of New York's finest improvisers, from The PIT, the UCB, and from Chicago's Second City.
