Men: Wouldnt it be great to be a Jon Stewart lookalike who wrote best-selling novels and was also a famous musician? Youre thinking ha ha, very funny: Nobody is that cool. Unfortunately, John Wesley Harding is exactly those things. Wes and Eugenes Cabinet of Wonders brings this entertaining personage to town, along with a slew of his interesting and talented friends. Comedian Eugene Mirman is the traveling co-host of this vaudeville-inspired variety show; local guests include Daniel Handler and Chris von Sneidern, star of the backhanded compliment of a documentary, Why Isnt Chris von Sneidern Famous? Harding plays music from his new album Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead, and the rest of them just make you feel incompetent.
