A Founding Father, a Victorian novelist and a Russian revolutionary walk into a … stop me if you’ve heard this one. Thomas Jefferson (yes that one), Charles Dickens (the very same) and Count Leo Tolstoy (who else?) are brought together in a blistering battle of wits for the ages. From Scott Carter (Executive Producer of Real Time with Bill Maher), this whip-smart comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.
