**Unfortunately, Kevin Bleyer's West Coast event dates had to be cancelled because apparently he was needed back at that little ol' thing called the Daily Show. He is very bummed & sends his apologies. So are we.
“I would rather read a constitution written by Kevin Bleyer than by the sharpest minds in the country”--Jon Stewart. As citizens of the United States of America, we have made a grave mistake by putting our faith in a four-page document written by farmers, scrawled on animal skin, conceived in desperation in the aftermath of war, composed in the language of the country it was intended to spurn, and, not for nothing, scribbled in handwriting with the quill of a goose. The Constitution they wrote way back then is a hot mess. Thankfully, Kevin Bleyer, the Emmy Award-winning writer for ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’, co-author of #1 New York Times bestseller Earth: The Book, and contributor to President Obama's speeches (the funny ones), has turned his formidable wit to the most significant literary event of the twenty-first, twentieth, nineteenth, and latter part of the eighteenth centuries: a complete rewrite of the United States Constitution.
