'Funny Business: Writing for Late Night' TV Panel in Brooklyn

Writers from The Daily Show, The Nightly Show and Late Night with David Letterman will gather in Brooklyn Heights at St. Francis College – Founders Hall on April 26 at 7:30 p.m. to pass on their wit and wisdom.

In an election year, we're reminded how much we look to comedy and late-night television to provide perspective and give voice to frustrations and absurdities of the political process. Three of the people who put those jokes on TV are coming to St. Francis College.

The event features Zhubin Parang (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), Franchesca Ramsey (The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore) and Joe Toplyn (Comedy Writer / Producer).

FREE for All Students and Faculty (from any institution) – $10 for all others

The writers will discuss their impact on politics and the national conversation in this election year as well as their process of thoroughly researching and fact-checking each segment.

The event is presented with the NYC Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment and St. Francis College. Organized by the Center for Communication.
