Who Will Join Dale in the Deep Night 6/21?

Watergate was lucky to have Deep Throat, and with whatever is going on in Washington these days, we’re fortunate to have a refuge in the DEEP NIGHT! On a special live season 9 finale of the program, Dale’s rolling up the sleeves of his political turtleneck and diving all the way into Russian ties, Comey tapes, and ties held together with tape. Not even Keebler Elf Cos Play enthusiast Jeff Sessions could interrupt the delightful conversation about to take place at the Slipper Room on Weds, June 21st. You’re invited to join in as B.L.O.W. (Brooklyn Ladies of Winning [the vote]) presents a night of comedy, catharsis and laughter in support of Brand New Congress. Special guests include: Janine Brito (comedian, Take My Wife, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell); Joanna Rothkopf (Managing Editor, Jezebel, Co-Host of Jezebel’s Big Time Dicks podcast); Jamilah King (senior staff writer for Mic.com); and Lily Herman (journalist, Teen Vogue). With the ethereal sounds of theremin player, Cornelius Loy.

Tickets for this event are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Proceeds from the evening will support Brand New Congress, a movement to run 400+ non-partisan candidates for Congress in 2018 in a unified campaign behind one plan to rebuild the economy, repair our communities and radically reform our institutions.

Below are some video and audio clips of our guests so you can get to know them in advance of the big night. But first, here’s the info you’ll need to attend:

She is a gifted comedic performer who hosts the popular Drunk Science series at Littlefield and has graced the stages of The PIT, UCB, and other fine venues.

Jamilah King is a Senior Staff writer for Mic.com, where she covers politics, culture, and more. Immediately after the election she offered some thoughts on what had just happened.

One of the great joys of the last few months has been the emergence of Teen Vogue as a source for solid political journalism. Lily Herman has been a part of that effort and has also gained a lot of attention for her active and informative twitter feed. For a list of recent articles for Teen Vogue visit the following link:
