Lizz Winstead in 2017: THE GREATEST SH*T SHOW on Earth Free Livestream on New Year's Eve!
On December 31, 2017, New Year's Eve, Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, co-founder of Lady Parts Justice, and one of the country's top political satirists, will livestream "2017: The Greatest Sh*t Show on Earth"-- her hilarious break down of the highs and lows (mostly the lows) of 2017. For those who want to avoid the crowds on New Year's Eve, Winstead's fresh, sharp take on 2017, hilariously, takes no prisoners. Think of it as the raw and righteous alternative to Anderson Cooper and Ryan Seacrest. I mean, haven't we watched enough balls drop this year?This much anticipated year-in-review show will be streamed on Facebook, live from The Cedar Cultural Center, in Winstead's hometown of Minneapolis as a benefit for her non-profit organization, Lady Parts Justice, a reproductive rights rapid response media HUB that uses humor to expose and replace anti-choice politicians, with pro-choice advocates in state legislatures in all 50 states. From The Women's March and the #MeToo movement, to the FCCkers who broke the internet, and the GOPers who broke everything else, Winstead promises a show brimming with her legendary laugh-out-loud rage. Asked about 2017: The Greatest Sh*t Show on Earth, Winstead says: "From Harvey Weinstein and his bathrobe, to the Alabama senate candidate who was the very definition of the term 'Less Is Moore,' 2017 could be called The Year of The Creep." She continues, "Trump is bringing on the apocalypse, and at this point, I'm so terrified the end is near that I won't even buy green bananas anymore. Seriously, the only thing left to happen this year are the locusts and the Four Horsemen!" 2017: The Greatest Sh*t Show on Earth will stream live on Winstead's Facebook page on New Year's Eve, December 31st at 9pm ET.

Lady Parts Justice is the first not safe for work, rapid response reproductive rights messaging HUB that uses comedy, culture and digital media to sound an alarm about the terrifying erosion of reproductive access so people will get off their asses and reclaim their rights. Co-Founded by Daily Show Co-Creator Lizz Winstead, LPJ incorporates humor to talk about reproductive rights while also dropping some knowledge and activism into our pop culture and social lives, inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive rights movements to get on board. Known for their hilariously engaging videos, in 2015 LPJ went high-tech and launched Hinder, an exciting app that helps followers keep track of all the unhinged anti- abortion zealots right in the palm of their hands! In 2016, LPJ premiered to critical acclaim "The Golden Probes," a satirical awards show and fundraiser honoring outstanding achievement in sexism and anti-choice extremism. The name Lady Parts is an homage to Lisa Brown, a former Michigan state rep who when in office was banned from the statehouse floor for using the word vagina when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill. When she asked what she should say they suggested something less provocative like "lady parts." The offensive nature of men uncomfortable with the word vagina, but perfectly comfortable legislating it, inspired both the name and mission of this groundbreaking reproductive rights organization. Lady Parts Justice is committed to diversity by creating content that fosters a multicultural, inclusive experience within the reproductive rights movement.
