The Crossword Show returns to Planet Word for a performance of Puzzle #1: “MiC Holders.” Host Zach Sherwin (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Epic Rap Battles of History,” MAD Magazine) presides as two guest comedians solve an actual crossword puzzle live onstage, with everything displayed on a big screen so you can follow along. It’s the New York Times crossword meets NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me,” with more rap than you’d expect.

As the solvers decipher the clues, Zach 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 delightful, brainy, one-of-a-kind experience! “Jaw-dropping.” – SFGate
