Zach Sherwin (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Epic Rap Battles of History”) hosts a panel of guest comedians as they solve an actual crossword puzzle live onstage in front of an audience, with everything displayed on a big screen so the crowd can follow along. Whenever the solvers decipher a clue, Zach takes the show down rabbit holes of comedy, music, trivia, and wordplay, all inspired by the various answer words. No crossword expertise is needed to be dazzled by this unique, joyful experience! Learn more at www.crosswordshow.com
