When: Wed., Sept. 23, 8 p.m. 2015
John Hodgman — that cataloger of all things weird and wonderful, that expert in absolutely everything — visits St. Louis tonight with his new one-man show, Vacationland. The bespectacled Renaissance man, who gained fame on The Daily Show (and as an anthropomorphized PC in those ubiquitous commercials), shares his collection of stories about everything from the creepy Dad mustache to the terrifying unpredictability of city buses to which small animals you should love as pets and which you should poison. An extraordinary storyteller, Hodgman has shared his tales on a TED Conference mainstage, on This American Life and now: with you. Hodgman goes on at 8 p.m. tonight at the Ready Room (4195 Manchester Avenue; 314-833-3929 or www.thereadyroom.com). Tickets are $25.
