    POLITICAL TALES is storytelling show about politics. Not political stand-up, but funny stories about encounters with the political world. Timed up with the primaries kicking into high gear, it’s a different, personalized take on the election, reflecting how politics impacts us individually and collectively. It’s also funny and fun. - See more at: http://neginfarsad.com/shows/#sthash.hawQzdIn.dpuf

In this engaging talk, Farsad will explore how she approaches race, religion and culture through comedy — and how we can chuckle our way to common ground. Recommended for teens and older."

    Part of COMEDIANS IN FILM, New York comedian, writer, director Negin Farsad introduces a special 35mm screening of COMEDIAN.

    This 2002 documentary takes a look at the work of two stand-up comics, Jerry Seinfeld and a lesser-known newcomer, Orny Adams, detailing the effort and frustration behind putting together a successful act and career while living a life on the road. It proves that success doesn’t make the path as a comedian any less difficult to pave. In Comedian, both comics are in crisis, to some degree. Seinfeld wants to relaunch his standup career, and Adams wants regular gigs on the late-night TV circuit and eventually a sitcom.
