In Video Veritas

If you've been curious about what goes on at Liar, here's how it works.



Say hello to last night's Liar, Dave Dickerson. Once again, the diabolical wit and ingenuity of a slippery storyteller saved me from ravaging my t-shirt reserves. Those things don't grow on trees. It was a very (very) good show. If you were there, thanks so much for coming. And for being so gullible. It's kind of cute. Come back Monday, December 4th, and try again with James Braly, Martin Dockery, Ophira Eisenberg and Xeni Fragakis. For the record, I think Xeni is a made-up name.


They Have Such Honest Faces

Well, maybe not that last guy. And I'm not sure I'd let #2 date my daughter. In fact, don't trust any of them. So who's lying this time?
