Miranda July in Conversation with Lena Dunham

Gilman Opera House

January 28, 2015

Miranda July and Lena Dunham are two distinctively creative, original and successful women, both highly lauded in the indie film and acting sphere. When the two come together for an evening of conversation, its safe to say the audience is in for more than just a by-the-book-interview between host Dunham and her guest July.

Hannibal Buress

Gilman Opera House

February 8, 2015

One of the hottest up and coming talents in the world of comedy, Hannibal Buress is fresh off the success of his own Comedy Central Special. The Chicago native arrived in New York in 2008 with $200 in his pocket and dreams of making it in the world of stand up. It's a testament to his talent that within a year he had landed a writing gig at SNL, which in turn led to stint on the staff at 30 Rock. Currently co-hosting Adult Swim's cult The Eric Andre Show, stand up remains Buress' first love. His routine is left-field randomness cased inside a breezy conversational tone, that has drawn comparisons to Steven Wright and the late great Mitch Hedberg.

Matt Groening & Lynda Barry

Gilman Opera House

February 12, 2015

Nearly 40 years later, and the two are still firm friends. Oh, and they're also two of the nation's greatest living cartoonists. Join them for a discussion of Ernie Pook, The Simpsons and their long lasting friendship.
