John Mulaney joins Stephen for another edition of Community Calendar!
Posted on May 1, 2020 | 11:40am
One of Stephen Colbert's favorite segments on The Late Show is something called "Community Calendar" where he and a celebrity guest highlight actual upcoming events happening in a small town that they're from. Events like poetry readings, local battles of the bands, deep-fried testicle festivals—you know, the heartland.

Stephen wants to do it again but, of course, right now all those local events have been canceled.

However, resourceful people across the country have now been holding the same sorts of incredible events online because we're now all living in the same small town known as: The Internet.

Here to help Stephen discuss some of the best online events is a man who is currently online himself, John Mulaney!



Events:

Are you a book lover looking for a sense of community? Then check out the Quarantined Pages project using the hashtag #ReadingApartTogether. Every day they are hosting a one-hour silent reading session on Zoom. It's the perfect event for anyone who wants to be silently ignored, but does not have a cat.

For all you cooks out there, on Saturday, May 2nd, Sacramento's "scratch made life" is hosting sausage making online. It's like the saying goes, "you don't want to know how the sausage gets made. Because it's so fun and you'll just want to do it all the time!"

Every Wednesday, Staten Island's Frank D. Paulo Intermediate School is hosting "The Masked Singer at Paulo" where middle school teachers perform in masks while students try to guess who they are. It's perfect for any teacher who likes working from home but misses getting made fun of by the students. So tune in to see who is behind Mister Charmin. Then quickly log off before you see him re-use that toilet paper.

Missing your local trivia night? Every Wednesday and Friday at 7 pm CT, BLA Community Trivia Night is offering a live stream version of their usual Trivia Mafia event held at Roundhouse Brewery in Brainerd, Minnesota. The first question: how can you have a trivia night in Brainerd and not call it "Brain-nerd trivia night"?

Looking to sing away your quarantine blues? Every Monday night JR's Bar in DC is live-streaming "Stay At Home Showtunes" on Twitter. So tune in and sing along till your neighbors call to say "Phantom of the Opera" is out of your range.

For a stunning look at nature, check out explore.org's live webcam of the Aurora Borealis from Manitoba, Canada. Go fullscreen to see why scientists call the northern lights "nature's screensaver."

And this Saturday, May 2, Little Rock's Club Evermore will host Cabin Fever, an online dance party featuring "4 hours of goth/industrial tracks. Plus goth gossip in our chat room!" Which, by the way, is what they originally called obituaries.

On May 12, the United States Office of Personnel Management will host a webinar on preparing a résumé for federal jobs. Learn helpful tips like: if you want to head up a coronavirus task force, under "relevant experience" put "married to the president's daughter."

Tuesday, May 5, join Allentown's Forward Thinking Fitness on Zoom for free kids superhero training! An interactive training session for kids that features superheroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Spider-Man, Batgirl, and many more! So come for the workout, stay to see DC and Marvel team up to sue a local gym!

Want to exercise from home but also enjoy drinking? Then sign up for a virtual drunk yoga class. Start the session in downward facing dog, and end the night in downward facing toilet bowl.

Every Friday at 8 pm, Jersey City's Art House Productions presents Virtual Drag Bingo hosted by Harmonica Sunbeam. Can't wait to tune in and find out what her drag name is.

Every night at 7 pm CT on Facebook Live, you can check out Quarantine Quarterhour, a daily variety show brought to you by a "farm somewhere near Nashville." It features live music, magic tricks, and occasional relationship advice.

Watch all-new episodes of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on CBS and CBS All Access.
