Thursday, June 1st | Tickets are $23.75

truTV, The Onion, The A.V. Club and Clickhole are proud to present, 'Idiocracy' on 35mm with writer and director Mike Judge during the 4th Annual 26th Annual Comedy Festival.

Acclaimed satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world. In this future, America was run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called "Ow My Balls."

Flash forward to today. We have now entered into the most bizarre Presidency in U.S. history. Over the past year, thousands have questioned in social media whether 'Idiocracy' was actually a documentary. Mike Judge's sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this new era of American culture and its deranged politics.

Following the screening, there will be a moderated discussion by Sean O'Neal from The A.V. Club and Mike Judge, and then we'll take some questions from the audience so sharpen those pencils.
