NEW YORK, October 14, 2015—Is edgy comedy doomed? Has a culture of outrage created a new “right not to be offended?” What would some of America’s most revered comedians of bygone eras like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin think of today’s audiences who seem more preoccupied with taking offense than protecting free speech?
Those are just a few of the questions America’s top comedians seek to answer in a new Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)-supported feature documentary premiering in New York City next month at DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival.
WHEN: Friday, November 13 at 7:15 p.m. and Monday, November 16 at 5:15 p.m.
WHERE: Greenwich Village’s IFC Center (323 6th Ave., New York, NY 10014)
TICKETS: $17. To purchase tickets, visit DOC NYC’s website.
Since this is on a Friday, I will be taking the eight-hour round-trip bus ride to go to this premiere. It should be very, VERY interesting!
