West Wing Writers Workshop

TUE // MAY 26 // 07:00PM

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.

Guests will break down their favorite speeches, give behind-the-scenes looks at the drafting process, and even aim to inspire the world with stirring words themselves — all from the comfort of a Zoom call while maintaining social distancing.

Hosted by:

Brian Agler (New Yorker), Chandler Dean (Reductress), and Sarah Gruen (McSweeney’s)


Featuring special guests:

Daniel Kibblesmith (Marvel Comics, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert)

Kyle Marian (The Symposium: Academic Standup, Woke AF)

Jordan Carlos (HBO’s Divorce, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, First Wives Club)


And from West Wing Writers:

Shaan Heng-Devan (Poetry in Motion)

Amy Muller (The Belladonna)

Jordana Narin (The New York Times)

Ilana Ross (Real Time with Bill Maher)

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 now hosts livestreams 6 nights a week with extra-special online editions of our long-running shows. Medical advice without any bullsh*t! Wrestlemania-style debates over 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 strange time and it may only get stranger. Hopefully some good old fashioned intelligent nightlife can help get you through it - right from the safety of your home. 

All ticket proceeds & PayPal contributions go toward paying Caveat’s staff during the shut-down, as well as paying the performers!
