They’re calling it #MobyDickathon.
Yes. Really. 📖🐳🌜 #MobyDickathon— @midnight (@midnight) October 15, 2015
According to the show’s Twitter, the livestream is a celebration of the novel’s publication anniversary. And, you know, just to see if they can do it.
So far, Hardwick has had the show’s regular guest comedians and writers tap in as readers—there have been appearances from Morgan Murphy, Dan Soder, Sara Schaefer, Steve Agee, Nate Corddry, and Emmy Blotnick, to name a few—but the stream is still underway, so there’s no telling who might show up next.
To keep up with the livestream, just follow the show on Periscope or Twitter.
