Whipsmart Comedy

Great truths can come of great laughs.

Rives' lyrical language unfolds around a series of historical coincidences surrounding 4a.m. -- the most surreal hour. Internet star Ze Frank playfully ribs the Internet, video games, haiku -- and even the TED Conference itself. And Julia Sweeney, formerly of SNL, uses her comedic chops to talk about her loss of faith in God and the rise of another way of being.
