Yes, there’ll be food, drinks, entertainment, conviviality, tables of literature, and fascinating people — all nestled in a beautiful Santa Monica garden spot — but “Politics & Comedy” is the theme for this event, which honors comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore (of The Young Turks’ Aggressive Progressives and The Jimmy Dore Show) and investigative journalist, author, and filmmaker Greg Palast (Billionaires & Ballot Bandits and The Best Democracy Money Can Buy).
Before headliners Dore and Palast take to the stage, the Single Payer Singers will kick things off with a selection of their deviously clever political songs, Dore’s “Miserable Liberal” co-star Stef Zamorano (the Perspicacious Preceptor) will fill us in on the lighter side of today’s darker events, and the art of Palast Investigative Fund fellow Ted Rall will be on display.
Drinks and canapés included in ticket price. Dress will be casual and good times will be aplenty!
Greg Palast (Rolling Stone, Guardian, BBC) is the author of The New York Times bestsellers, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, now out as major non-fiction movie.
