About this show

Mediocrity: A Sophomore Effort is a live, unholy mash-up of equal parts TED Talk, stand-up, and music loops from humorist Brendan Hughes. If Radiolab and Flight of the Conchords had a baby that was delivered by Eddie Izzard at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, the home video of that childbirth procedure would be not unlike this show.

Mediocrity will be a live taping of what will become Hughes's second concert album, following 2014's The Pizzicato Effect, which was recorded at Ars Nova in 2012 and is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Since 2008, Hughes has delivered experimental comic lectures on gigantic themes in an ongoing attempt to double-click on the universe, by offering ontological equipment to fellow 21st-century travelers for their hazardous journey through the post-everything age.
