Emmy and Sundance Film Festival Award-winning writer and director Jacob Kornbluth will chat with Stephanie Weisman, Founder/Artistic Director of the Marsh this Thursday August 20th at 7:30pm PDT as part of the ongoing a?oeStephaniea??s MarshStreama?? series.

Kamau Bell, host and executive producer of CNNa??s Emmy-winning docu-series a?oeUnited Shades of America.a?? In light of current social issues facing the U.S., Bell and Kornbluth teamed up to make a?oeTalk Boring to Me,a?? which examines topics such as the gig economy, asylum and homelessness in short videos that capture Bella??s trademark humor intertwined with teachable moments. While Kornblutha??s recent work has focused mainly on film and video, he is perhaps equally well-known for his theater work, including collaborating on and directing three successful solo shows in San Francisco (The Moisture Seekers, Pumping Copy, Face by the Door). BroadwayWorld caught up with Kornbluth recently to talk about the genesis for the series and his history with The Marsh. In conversation, he is much like his new series a?" plainly smart and thoughtful, easily approachable, and prone to find cheeky humor in even the most serious of subjects. Speaking with him leaves you feeling better informed and somehow more hopeful, even as he himself would never claim to have all the answers.
