    Harvardwood Heads To... Andy Borowitz AB '80 Live: The Make America Not Embarrassing Again Tour

    Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 07:30 PM · $30.00 USD
    Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA

    The New York Times best-selling author and comedian who has written for The New Yorker since 1998 is taking his satirical news column on the road to The Dolby Theatre. Join Andy Borowitz AB '80 for an evening of conversation & storytelling as we get down to addressing what the @#$ is going on! 

    Borowitz has been called a “Swiftian satirist” (the Wall Street Journal), “America’s satire king” (the Daily Beast), “the funniest human on Twitter” (the Times), and “one of the funniest people in America” (CBS News’ “Sunday Morning”). In 2001, he created the Borowitz Report, a satirical news column that has millions of readers around the world, for which he won the first-ever National Press Club award for humor.

    The Borowitz Report was acquired by The New Yorker in 2012. He has published two recent best-selling books: “The 50 Funniest American Writers,” which became the first title in the history of the Library of America to make the Times best-seller list; and a memoir, “An Unexpected Twist,” a No. 1 best-seller, which Amazon named the Best Kindle Single of 2012. His Twitter feed, @BorowitzReport, has more than half a million followers and was voted the best Twitter feed of 2011 in a poll by Time. In 1990, Borowitz created “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” which aired for six seasons on NBC. As a comedian, he has performed sold-out shows around the world and has made countless television and radio appearances, on National Public Radio, VH1, and Comedy Central, among other places.

    A limited number of VIP gold circle seats will be available that also includes a post-show photo op (no autographs) with Andy.

    "Who's in the Room" Mentoring Program accepting applications

    The deadline to apply to TIME'S UP Entertainment's mentoring program, Who's in the Room, is April 19th! Get the program details and application link below.

    timesup.jpg“Who’s in the Room” (WITR), a program of TIME’S UP Entertainment, is designed to increase the presence of people from a variety of economic and cultural backgrounds in the producer and executive ranks of the entertainment industry. We want to flood the market with young, diverse executives and help them build a powerful network of peers and mentors who will support them throughout their career.

    We are targeting assistants in the executive and producer pipeline with one to three years of experience to help them get promoted, or “JUMP”, to junior executive level.
