AN EVENING WITH RICHARD "THE BELZ" BELZER
Retrospective / Discussion / Q&A / Reception / Book-Signing
Join us for rare opportunity to experience an up-close and personal evening with Richard Belzer,
the actor, author, musician, and legendary comic in the lineage of topical, cutting edge artists such
as Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Lenny Bruce. Belzer will present his favorite episode of Law &
Order: SVU, an array of clips featuring his beloved character "John Munch," and a comedy short
followed by a fun, free-wheeling and controversial audience discussion. Richard Belzer, known
affectionately as "the Belz," has been playing the unforgettable role of conspiracy-theorist detective
John Munch for 13 seasons in the hit NBC show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In fact, Belzer has played "John Munch" on a
record-setting 11 different television series for 20 consecutive yearsincluding Homicide, Law & Order, The X-Files, Sesame Street,
The Wire, Arrested Development and 30 Rock. But of course "the Belz" is also a veteran stand-up comic, starring first in the cult, counter-cultural classic The Groove Tube, and going on to appear off-Broadway on The National Lampoon Show with Bill Murray, Gilda Radner and John Belushi and in a series of films, as well in his own comedy specials, including HBO's Another Lone Nut. He is also an author of two novels and other non-fiction books.
In his new book, DEAD WRONG: Straight Facts on the Country's Most Controversial Cover-Ups, Richard
Belzer and his co-author, investigative journalist David Wayne, marshal a host of up-to-date scientific and
forensic evidence, all referenced, to argue that the U.S. government has faked the suicides or mysterious deaths
of politicians, celebrities and government figures including Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King Jr., John F.
Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and others.
