Video: Kevin Gosztola Performs At Laughing Liberally Chicago

The Laughing Liberally chapter in Chicago hosted their monthly event on October 5, and Shadowproof managing editor Kevin Gosztola performed a satirical piece, “An Unsolicited Guide To Protesting The Right Way.”

A written version of this satire appeared on Shadowproof weeks ago, but it was revised and updated for this performance.

Much thanks to The Accountants of Homeland Security, who host Laughing Liberally each month, and in particular, Matthew Filipowicz, who was gracious enough to give Kevin the opportunity to have some stage time and share his piece with an audience.

If you live in or nearby Chicago, every month the Accountants put together a fantastic lineup of comics and also feature a local journalist and independent music act. We highly encourage you to attend and look for November’s lineup to be posted here.
