7:00pm until 10:00pm in EDT
PEN will treat Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend crowds to an unexpected evening of literature and laughs. Enjoy a night of political comedy and commentary, as New York’s top progressive performers joke, jab, rant, vent, prod, provoke and revel in their right to express themselves at a one-night comedy event celebrating freedom of expression.
Who says freedom of expression has to be serious? For the first time ever, PEN will partner with Laughing Liberally, whose performers have appeared on Comedy Central, HBO, MSNBC, a national tour, and in the pages of The Onion, The Nation, and The Huffington Post. No topic is off-limits, no politician safe, and no time can be better than this election season to laugh loudly and laugh liberally.
Participants include Katie Halper and others to be announced soon.
