The iconoclastic master of political parody, P.J. O’Rourke kicks off the Open VISIONS season with wickedly sharp satire directed at what promises to be a rollicking presidential campaign. His taunting takes on the American electoral process, and an election cycle that is equal parts horror and humor, with trademark razor-sharp satire.
Launching his career in the early days of National Lampoon, O’Rourke’s contrarian views became a staple in legacy publications like Playboy, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. Armed with a provocatively anti-establishment outlook and professed ‘damn them all’ Libertarian philosophy, he has published 16 books, including three New York Times bestsellers. He is a regular guest on Bill Maher’s “Real Time,” and NPR’s “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”, and “60 Minutes” has dubbed O’Rourke one of the “most often quoted” humorists alive.
