How Funny Is Matt Cooper? Almost Time to Find Out at Commedia dell Media

Tickets are now on sale for Commedia dell Media Friday, April 3rd at the National Press Club. The line-up includes Matt Cooper, David Corn, Nancy Youssef, Mark Hosenball, Jamila Bey, Mike Walter, and a half dozen or so more.

From the release (because they can explain this ridiculous, great event much better than we can even begin to try to): “Can Matt Cooper Twitter while performing stand-up comedy? Will David Corn tie his shoelaces? Does Mark Hosenball really sing? Is Mike Walter surgically attached to an anchor desk? These eternal dilemmas and many more you never wanted to ask about will be resolved on the evening of Friday, April 3 as a dozen journalists take a turn on the comedic stage in the National Press Club ballroom.

Much more than a simple night of laughter and cocktails, the proceeds of Commedia dell Media will benefit two causes close to the hearts of the performers. The Eric Friedheim Library at the National Press Club provides cutting-edge training for journalists and assists with research for reporters, authors and academics. Reporters Without Borders is the international non-profit organization dedicated to protecting journalists’ rights, fighting censorship, and promoting freedom of expression.

The reporters taking the stage at Commedia dell Media will enjoy absolute freedom of expression, though rumors have already begun been circulating that a rogue band of flacks may be plotting a surprise attack of heckling.”

They’re still looking for brave journo comedians. If interested, email FBDC and we’ll get you in touch with the right people. Purchase tickets here.
