Today, December 5th, is the 4th annual International Day of the Ninja. While we don't recommend taking swords to work, come nightfall, you can let out your inner ninjutsu at the El Rey Theater on Wilshire.

Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine of Ask a Ninja will host. The Ninja awaits your questions, so don't be talkin' like a pirate. Get there early for special guest performances from funnyman Patton Oswalt and the hilarious audio-visual offerings of Hard 'n Phirm.

The Ninja's take on the writer's strike, plus videos from Patton Oswalt and Hard 'n Phirm after the jump.
