LAUGHING LIBERALLY: THIS AIN'T NO TEA PARTY is a comedy extravaganza, which mixes humor, musical numbers, video, and political satire, to spread understanding of liberal ideas and advance progressive values. Showcasing the brightest progressive comedians from The Onion, Comedy Central, Showtime, MTV, Huffington Post, and C-SPAN, LAUGHING LIBERALLY: THIS AIN'T NO TEA PARTY will save democracy one laugh at a time. Original songs for LAUGHING LIBERALLY: THIS AIN'T NO TEA PARTY are written and composed by Jamie Jackson.
Under the direction of Justin Krebs (author of 538 Ways to Live, Work & Play as a Liberal), the show will feature a rotating roster of today's hottest comedians including John Fugelsang, Jim David, Dean Obeidallah, Baratunde Thurston, Negin Farsad, Lee Camp, Katie Halper, and Elon James White.
LAUGHING LIBERALLY is presented by Living Liberally, which builds progressive communities through social networks and events. Living Liberally also runs Drinking Liberally, the national network of over 200 progressive social clubs; Screening Liberally, a series of socially-conscious films; Eating Liberally, environmentally conscious food events with good gab and great grub; and Reading Liberally, book tours for progressive authors. Living Liberally is led by a New York-based team and fueled by the energy of hundreds of volunteers and partners around the country.
