Galapagos Art Space
16 Main Street Brooklyn, NY 11201
Enjoy an evening 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 American Center 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!
$15 ticket can be purchased at Ovationtix or at 866-811-4111.
