On this episode of The SHOW SHOW, Ruth and Liz talk to famed Twitter sensation / Harvard Fellow @jonnysun about his new play Dead End at the Factory Theatre, his degree in architecture from Yale, and his online banter with Lin-Manuel Miranda.
With over 181, 000 followers to date Jonny has gained international attention for his twitter character known as “jomny sun.” When he’s not playwriting or tweeting, this Yale Graduate and Harvard Fellow is currently working on a PhD at MIT where he was also recently awarded the MIT de Florez Fund for Humor… Needless to say, he’s an underachiever.

About The SHOW SHOW
The SHOW SHOW features aspiring hosts Ruth Goodwin (The Howland Company) and Liz Johnston (Bad Dog Theatre) as they interview theatre artists and comedians about life in Toronto as a performer, on their show, about shows.
Eager to conduct the greatest interview of all time, The SHOW SHOW is a mishmash of various styles—one minute it’s a lip sync battle, the next it’s Theatre Brouhaha drunk in a living room. Directed by the incomparable Jacqueline Andrade.
