Caveat livestreams are presented as pay-what-you-can. If you're able we'd very much appreciate the cost of a ticket and a drink so we can support our staff and performers: https://paypal.me/caveatnyc
West Wing Writers Workshop: A hilarious look at speeches, from actual speechwriters.
SpeakEasy brings together former presidential speechwriters, current West Wing Writers speechwriters, and comedians who like speeches, to talk about the world’s great medium — orations.

With Special Guests:
Andrea Jones-Rooy, Ph.D. (NYU, Ask a Political Scientist) Felipe Torres Medina (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert)

ABOUT CAVEAT LIVESTREAMS: Going crazy yet? Craving information, but starting to feel desperate to receive it in a non-depressing way? Worried about the state of art and intelligent discussion in the time of social distancing? We got you.
Your favorite nerdy basement bar is hosting livestreams 5 nights a week with extra-special online editions of our shows. Medical advice without any bullsh*t! Wrestlemania-style debates over different scientific principles (where you can chime in)! Political science with that ever-needed dash of showmanship! If it’s smart and it’s weird and it’s entertaining, you know we’re gonna give it to you. It’s a weird time and it may only get weirder. Hopefully some good old fashioned intelligent nightlife can help get you through it - right from the safety of your home. And if you’d like to contribute to the artists and keeping the venue alive, here’s a link where you can do that! We’ll split whatever comes in between making sure Caveat stays functioning and the artists on stage. https://paypal.me/caveatnyc
Wash your hands and keep calm: Caveat is here to keep our community comforted and our creators working.
