Piercing barbs. Crackling repartee. Astute insights.
That’s what you can expect when the essence of urban wit, Fran Lebowitz, sits down with her friend and foil Frank Rich to discuss politics, the president, money, the suburbanization of New York, the rich, the young, the freedom to not listen, the civil rights of smokers and anything else that piques her notoriously hilarious rage . . . which is almost everything.
The beloved cultural satirist might have notoriously suffered from writer’s block since the publication of her blockbusters, Metropolitan Diaries and Social Studies. But that hasn’t stopped her from talking — at parties where the literati gather, on the Bill Maher show and on stages across the nation and abroad. The unstructured result is alternately shocking, stimulating and compelling.
Five days before the 2020 election, Lebowitz will join in a candid chat with Rich, dubbed the “Butcher of Broadway” when he was the chief theater critic of The New York Times before becoming a Times Op-Ed columnist and now a contributing writer for New York Magazine as well as a producer for HBO’s popular shows Veep and Succession.
