Epic Rap Battles of History tour coming to Des Moines

Epic Rap Battles of History is an ongoing web series in which historical (and sometimes fictional) figures like Napoleon, Columbus, Stephen Hawking, Justin Bieber, Sarah Palin and others are pitted against each other, "Eight Mile"-style.

The show's creators and primary voice actors, Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist will bring the Epic Rap Battles of History Tour to Vaudeville Mews on Aug. 26.

Check out the latest battle, between David Copperfield and Harry Houdini:

Between them, Shukoff and Ahlquist have performed as John Lennon, Bill O'Reilly, Darth Vader, Adolf Hitler, Abraham Lincoln, Macho Man Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Genghis Khan, The Cat in the Hat, Captain Kirk, and others.

Tickets are $25 through Tikly.
