"The only honest man left in news" is coming to Cincinnati.

Andrew Callaghan, the creator and journalist behind the YouTube series Channel 5, will be hosting a live show at The Ballroom at Taft Theatre in Cincinnati on Friday, Nov. 18.

Channel 5 is a spinoff of Callaghan's original channel All Gas No Brakes, and features gonzo journalism and man on the street reporting with his own particular brand of deadpan humor. Since launching All Gas No Brakes in late 2019, Callaghan and his team have traveled the country, reporting on complex social and political issues.

Channel 5 reporting runs the gamut from the serious to the outrageous, with Callaghan and the team covering events like the National Rifle Association's exhibition directly after the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and the Satanic Semple Gathering in Scottsdale, Arizona (aka SatanCon).

In early September, it was revealed that HBO had acquired Channel 5's YouTube documentary about the Jan. 6 insurrection. The documentary, which features Channel 5's “wild RV journey through America in the months leading up to the January 6 Capitol Riot," according to Variety, does not have a release date.

"Channel 5 Live" will take place at The Ballroom at Taft Theatre on Nov. 18. Doors open at 10 p.m. and the show starts at 10:30 p.m. The 8 p.m. performance on Nov. 18 is currently sold out. Tickets start at $35. For tickets and more information about the show, visit
