Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, comedian and insightful social critic, discusses how she discovered her comedic voice in her book "Lizz Free or Die."
This event is free for NPC members, $5.00 for all guests and non-members. NPC members should login for the discount code.
From her childhood longing to be a priest, to her role in developing The Daily Show and her life today (complete with two difficult dogs), Winstead has tapped an outrageous and heartfelt vein of the all-too-human comedy. In this collection of autobiographical essays, Winstead vividly recounts how she fought to find her own voice, both as a comedian and as a woman, and how humor became her most powerful weapon in confronting life's challenges.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Proceeds benefit the National Press Club Journalism Institute. No outside books will be permitted.
