Comedy Night with Chris Smith

Join Main Street Books and Oops! Improv Comedy Group for a rollicking, comedic evening with Chris Smith, author of The Daily Show (The Book); An Oral History, at Summit Coffee.

In addition to working as a contributing editor at New York magazine, Chris Smith penned The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History. For almost 17 years, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart brilliantly redefined the borders between television comedy, political satire, and opinionated news coverage. It launched the careers of some of today's most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys. Now the show's behind-the-scenes gags, controversies, and camaraderie are chronicled by the players themselves, from legendary host Jon Stewart to the star cast members and writers in The Daily Show (The Book).

In honor of Chris Smith, who is visiting from his home in Brooklyn specifically for this event, Oops will improvise the three acts of a typical Daily Show episode, with help from the audience. Following their performance, Chris Smith will share stories and answer questions about his experience behind the scenes writing The Daily Show (The Book).

Tickets cost $5 and can be applied toward the purchase of a copy of The Daily Show (The Book), which will be available for sale at the event. Buy your tickets online or in person at Main Street Books.
