The Crossword Show returns to CitySpace for the debut of Puzzle #6: "Nothing Fancy." Host Zach Sherwin (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Epic Rap Battles of History,” MAD Magazine) presides as a panel of guest comedians solves an actual crossword puzzle live onstage, with everything displayed on our screen so you can follow along.

As the solvers decipher the various clues, Sherwin takes the show down rabbit holes of comedy, music, wordplay and trivia, all inspired by the answer words. Everything ties together at the end for a grand finale that’s as satisfying as it is mind-blowing. You don’t need any crossword expertise to be dazzled by this joyful, life-affirming, one-of-a-kind experience!
