Political Satire Writing Workshop with Daily Show Co-Creator Lizz Winstead
Throughout history comedians, writers, activists and performers have used satire to question those who abuse authority, call out hypocrites, and ignite movements.  As Co-creator and Head Writer of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead changed the way people get their news and react to politics forever.

Lizz takes on hypocrisy with a brilliant razor sharp wit, hitting all the big guys who choose to abuse their power.


During this limited enrollment workshop Lizz will lead you through the thought process of some of her most effective and timely parodies, teach you how to craft a joke and discuss responding to current events promptly with limited resources.
