Michael Schulman remembers Joan Rivers:
“Everyone who called her the Queen of Mean was missing the point: life is what’s mean, and she was here to let us know how funny that is.”

Everyone celebrating her death and/or shitting on her posthumously should read this, take a look in the mirror, and reassess how they consume comedy.

Dear American University Class of 2018!
Once again, the Kennedy Political Union Proudly Presents the Capitol Steps. This is a Welcome Week tradition and will take place Sunday, Aug. 24th at 7pm in the Ampitheater.
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest: Fiscal Shades of Gray. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. They’re kind of a big deal.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me (Tyler Bowders, Director of the Kennedy Political Union) at email@example.com
