Chapo Trap House
Tuesday August 21: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Join us in the rare book room as Chapo Trap House podcast hosts Will Menaker, Felix Biederman, Matt Christman, Virgil Texas, and former host Brandan James discuss their upcoming book THE CHAPO GUIDE TO REVOLUTION: A Manifesto Against Logic, Facts, and Reason. The book is a hilarious, no-holds-barred take-down of the contemporary American political and cultural scene, written in the in-your-face style that has made the podcast a cult hit with millennial listeners.
Chapo Trap House is a collective of writers, artists, and satirists that began as a political comedy podcast in March 2016. Their biweekly show has been covered everywhere from The New Yorker to Vice and Paste, which calls its creators “the vulgar, brilliant demigods of the new progressive left.” Chapo is a mix of absurdist comedy and freewheeling commentary, skewering political and media figures and reviewing bad movies and books. Originally a trio of Internet-pals Will Menaker, Felix Biederman, and Matt Christman, the show has expanded its roster to writers Brendan James, Amber A’Lee Frost, and Virgil Texas. They live in Brooklyn, New York.
Joining them in conversation will be cartoonist and Chapo collaborator, Eli Valley.
