Lovett or Leave It returns to The Chicago Theatre on February 27.
During Lovett or Leave It each week, Jon Lovett is joined by comedians, journalist, activists, elected officials, actors (not annoying ones), and musicians to break down the latest news, quiz the audience, and mock the endless frustrations and absurdities of our broken political nightmare factory. A presidential speechwriter, comedy writer, and co-host of Pod Save America, Lovett brings a unique combination of humor and analysis to help us understand and laugh at the news instead of hiding from society until climate change or a Democrat wins. There are games! Rants! Musical performances! Substantive discussion! Odd tangents on local fast food options! All of your favorite subjects. Come say hi.
Jon Lovett is a former presidential speechwriter, as well as a TV writer, podcast host, and straight shooter WIDELY respected on both sides. In 2017, he founded Crooked Media with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, to build a progressive media network with shows, analysis, and sweet, sweet content that informs, entertains, and inspires action. There, he co-hosts “Pod Save America” and hosts “Lovett or Leave It,” two of the most popular political podcasts in the country. Before Crooked, he served as a presidential speechwriter in the Obama White House, co-created a comedy on NBC called “1600 Penn” (which was cancelled after one perfect season), and wrote speeches for Hillary Clinton. Jon was also once named “Washington’s funniest celebrity” before he left the nation’s capital forever.
