Capitol Steps
The Capitol Steps promise to Make America Grin Again with a bipartisan riot that's sure to trump their nearly 40 years of putting the "mock" in democracy. The all-new show, from the singing satirists who brought you Orange is the New Barack, comes a barrage of hysterical, hot-off-the-press political parodies.

THE GUTFELD MONOLOGUES LIVE

Classic Rants from The Five

Greg Gutfeld

With Special Guest Tom Shillue

Greg Gutfeld has been called "outrageous and outspoken," neither of which he denies. A libertarian political satirist, humorist, magazine editor and blogger, he is perhaps best known as host of The Greg Gutfeld Show (Saturdays, 10-11 pm/ET) and co-host of The Five (weekdays 9-10 pm/ET), both on FNC (Fox News Channel). On The Greg Gutfeld Show, he parodies current events and converses on key issues, bringing a comedic twist to the news. Additionally, Gutfeld interviews newsmakers and culture critics on the major headlines of the week. The Weekly Standard calls him "the most dangerous man on television." According to the magazine, unlike other media darlings, "Gutfeld's stuff actually is subversive, a stink bomb hurled into every faculty lounge, mainstream newsroom, movie studio, and nonprofit boardroom in America." He is the author of eight books, among them, four New York Times Best Sellers-The Gutfeld Monologues, How to be Right, Not Cool, and The Joy of Hate.

A Conversation About The
Remarkable Life and Work Of Philip Roth
A Conversation with Lee Wolf and Steven Caras
(A Kravis Center Cultural Society Event)

Philip Roth, who died last May at the age of 85, is a leading voice in the canon of American Literature. He enjoyed testing the boundaries of good taste and did so with sparkling wit through his oft irreverent and voyeuristic approach. He was undaunted by his many critics, forcefully questioning and criticizing certain sacred American beliefs. Ironically, Roth's 2004 novel, The Plot Against America, foreshadows what is transpiring today in our country. Lee Wolf and Steven Caras will share a no holds-barred discussion about Roth's life and work.
