Up Close & Political: New Abortion Laws is June 3rd.

New abortion restrictions are being passed across the country.

We’re rowing - or dare we say wading - into the waters with stand-up comedy and an open discussion with experts and the audience.

Featuring an incredible lineup of comedians:

Megan Gailey, a host of Crooked Media's popular podcast Hysteria who's been on Comedy Central, @Midnight and other stuff. 

Laurie Kilmartin, writer for Conan, contestant on "Last Comic Standing," and author of "Sh*tty Mom."

Adam Yenser, a regular performer and writer on Ellen and former Politicon Political Comic of the Year.

And experts:

Raquelle De La Rocha, Senior Attorney at the Bloom Firm, former professor at UCLA Law School and past president of the L.A. Police and L.A. Ethics commissions.

Dr. Brian Nguyen, assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at USC and head of the EMERGE (Expanding Male Involvement in Reproductive and Gender Equity) Lab.

Dr. Jasmine Patel, OB/GYN and family planning researcher.

We’ll be trying to do the impossible: have a discussion on abortion that is not a total shitshow, and is actually informative and even funny.

Will we succeed or crash and burn? Hey, it’s only $5 to find out.

Showtime is 7:30pm Monday, June 3rd at the Hollywood Improv comedy club.
