*** PLEASE NOTE: Due to popular demand, there are now TWO SHOWS: Saturday, April 21 at 6 PM & Sunday, April 22 at 4 PM. General admission tickets for both shows have SOLD OUT. A limited number of VIP tickets are still available, see details below.

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of America’s most insightful social commentators. Offering her acerbic views on current events and the media, her writing — pointed, taut and economical — is equally forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated. Lebowitz is widely sought out for her razor-sharp commentary on everything from cigarettes to the Trump presidency.

For her first Toronto appearance in five years, Lebowitz will hold court on stage – in conversation with Johanna Schneller (Globe and Mail columnist and host of CBC’s The Filmmakers) on Saturday, April 21 and Anna Maria Tremonti (host of CBC Radio’s The Current) on Sunday, April 22 – followed by an audience Q & A. Copies of her collected essays, The Fran Lebowitz Reader, will be available for purchase at the event through Ben McNally Books.

ABOUT FRAN LEBOWITZ
Fran Lebowitz worked odd jobs, such as taxi driving, belt peddling, and apartment cleaning before being hired by Andy Warhol as a columnist for Interview. Her first book, a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, was an international bestseller, as was a second collection, Social Studies. Lebowitz has also worked in television (Law & Order), film (The Wolf of Wall Street), and has long been a regular on various talk shows including those hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, and Bill Maher. She appears in various documentary films including the American Experience series on New York City, as well as Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures (2016), Regarding Susan Sontag (2014), and Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol (1990). Public Speaking, a documentary about Lebowitz directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on HBO in November 2010. Lebowitz lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
