Every day, history is made- whether it's the Rum Rebellion on January 26th, the birth of Nandor Fodor on May 13th, or the death of J.R.R. Tolkien on September 2nd, history happens every day.  And every day, comedians are painstakingly combing the headlines for new joke fodder.  With "This Day in History," comedians are challenged to write entirely new material about the past events of the date of the performance and bring their totally fresh, unrehearsed ideas to the stage!
