The #1 Hot Podcast About Reality TV: Watch What Crappens Live in Manhattan, October 11th and 12th
Watch What Crappens Live Tickets available for Thursday; Friday sold out
By: Watch What Crappens
Since July, 2017, when Ben and Ronnie scored their first SRO live performance at the Gotham Comedy Club, the two have developed a cult following all around the country. And their live podcasts sell out almost immediately. Fans (including some Bravo-lebrities themselves) show up at theaters dressed in costumes, homemade t-shirts, or even a Patricia Caftan – with many travelling hundreds of miles for the experience. It's not hype, folks. Fact is, the shrieking starts from the moment the two podcasters take the stage to their final bows. (That's two hours worth of high frequency modulation and two days of sore throats.) "Our fans are amazing – really devoted," Mandelker says of the two million plus.
The live podcasting trend has taken off. "It's crazy," says Mandelker. "We started out as two guys who talked to you through your ear buds or in the car while you were driving just to give you a laugh," says Mandelker. "Next thing you know we're being featured at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. They treat us like rock stars wherever we go!" Not bad as gigs go. In addition to their live tours, listeners can tune in to five podcasts a week covering a variety of shows. With Crappens, there is something for everyone.
Watch What Crappens mostly lampoons the weekly happenings and delicious drama of Bravo-lebrities. Lately, they've expanded their universe. This funny and brash podcast has racked up nominations for "Best Podcast" by LA Weekly and earned praise from Mental Floss, which called it "laugh-out-loud"
"We love the audiences in New York," says Karam. "Our Thursday show will cover The Real Housewives of Dallas, and on Friday we'll tackle a classic episode of The Real Housewives of New York," he says. "This is our first time covering RHONY in NY, and we expect it to be legendary!"

10/11 & 10/12 – New York City, New York – Gramercy Theater (tickets available 10/11; 10/12 sold out)

About Watch What Crappens
Watch What Crappens started as a lark sometime in 2012 by Ben Mandelker and Ronnie Karam. The two friends just happened to like talking about shows they watched the night before. Their audiences grew and grew. Last year, they decided to give live theater a go, and it's been "pretty amazing!" The duo was featured at the 2018 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal; Bustle called Watch What Crappens "dependably fantastic;" The Huffington Post declared Crappens the "go to podcast for all things Bravo;" and Buzzfeed ranked the show on its list of "22 Fantastic Podcasts To Make Your Commute Less Shitty." Watch What Crappens is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, and anywhere else where podcasts are found.
