Zach Sherwin ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," "Epic Rap Battles of History") hosts a panel of guest comedians (Bethany Van Delft and Josh Gondelman) as they solve an actual crossword puzzle live onstage, with everything displayed on a giant screen for the audience to follow along.

Each time the solvers decipher a clue, Zach takes the show down a rabbit hole of comedy, music, wordplay and/or trivia inspired by the answer words. You don't need any crossword expertise to be dazzled by this unique and joyful experience!
