Dating in New York is HARD. Are they a killer? Painfully boring? A distant cousin with an eerily strong resemblance to your uncle? Whatever the quandary, it's not easy out there, and comedian/matchmaker Emma Vernon knows it!

In A World: The Dating Show is an interactive comedy dating/matchmaking show. Since 2017, Vernon has been transforming the (oftentimes painful) traditional first date into a stress-free and ridiculously fun time, all made for YOUR viewing pleasure!

How? First, she uses her matchmaking skills to handpick each match! Don't worry, she'll tell you a little bit about the science behind each match. Second, she enlists the help of NYC's best comedic improvisers and you--the audience, to help craft the most epic first date spot. Forget the traditional bar or restaurant, on In A World, the audience picks the first date -- a music festival, a bowling alley, a bonfire, a silent retreat, [insert insane first date spot here] all inspired by their own first date experiences. Wherever they pick, hilarious veteran improvisers bring that location to life for our daters.

If the daters opt for a second date, they win an all-expense-paid proper first date! Lucky audience members win fun giveaways through out the show. Past prizes have included sex toys, movie tickets, free drinks, oh and dates! Every show ends in a singles after party where single audience members are given green stickers to denote their eligibility and encouraged to mingle.

The daters and set ups are 100% real. The locations are 100% fake. Is this the hopeless place Rihanna was talking about?
