There a lot of dumb people in this world, but when it comes to crime, it seems the dummies converge in dramatic fashion. Dumb People Town, hosted by brothers Randy and Jason Sklar, along with improvisational storyteller Daniel Van Kirk, presents its popular podcast (focused on true crime with a dimwitted twist in Florida and beyond) told and riffed on with comedic flair, special guests and live music. It’s one of the few podcasts that also entertains in a live format, and this week, its L.A. recording event promises to be particularly punny and pizzazz-y. Deadpan funnyman Demetri Martin joins the trio, as does the legendary “Weird Al” Yankovic, to talk crooks, comedy and pop culture. The Dirty Projectors’ David Longstreth provides sounds.
