We are now in the thick of campaign season. Whom do we trust to report all the news about primaries, campaigns and the mood swings of voters around the country? Only one journalist gives us the news, and the news behind the news, like Andy Borowitz. Perhaps one of the most important reporters on the election beat today, Andy distills the truth from the big story, and presents it to the American public in a way that the candidates can’t: truthfully.
Andy Borowitz will talk politics and humor on February 28. With comedian, author and actor Patton Oswalt. Patton is a stand-up comedian who has appeared in many of his own specials on HBO, Showtime and Comedy Central. His riffs on issues such as foreign policy, religion, Downton Abbey and pop culture are hilarious. He is also the author of the recently published book, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland. Please note: Sarah Silverman has had an unexpected scheduling conflict and will not participate in the program. We are delighted that Patton, one of the most respected performers in the comedy world, will chat with Andy onstage.
Read borowitzreport.com and find Andy and Patton on Twitter (
@BorowitzReport and @pattonoswalt). Then try to figure out why CBS News Sunday Morning says that Andy’s “one of the funniest people in America.” What are they hiding? Who’s funnier? When Andy isn’t wasting his time tweeting and messing with Facebook, he writes for magazines such as The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. We at Writers Bloc love his new bestselling book, The 50 Funniest American Writers: An Anthology of Humor From Mark Twain to The Onion.
