New York nonprofit 826NYC is celebrating 10 years of providing students ages 6 - 18 with free literacy and writing programs. Part of this year's festivities is a fundraising event happening March 5 at Town Hall called the Tenth Anniversary Chat Spectacular. Hosted by Eugene Mirman and Sarah Vowell, the night pairs distinguished artists in conversation, specifically: documentary filmmaker Ken Burns & author Kurt Andersen; former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver and musician / journalist Questlove; Portlandia's Fred Armisen & the Audience; as well as Russian author Masha Gessen and music by Robyn Hitchcock. 826NYC promise more guests to be announced.

Tickets to 826 NYC's Tenth Anniversary Chat Spectacular are on sale now.

This will be one more busy night for Armisen, who has Portlandia returning at the end of the month, not to mention his new gig as bandleader for Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Ken Burns is funnier than Armisen.

Oof. So white. Questlove should be ashamed of himself.

Is this another show where Eugene Mirman is on stage talking to another person trying to be funny while he's being fat?

Is this another comment where you try to feel better about yourself with a lame attempt to be funny at the expense of a comedian much more successful than you'll ever be?
