You Must See Lee Camp – Host of Redacted Tonight
I’m not even quite sure when I became acquainted with Lee Camp. I just know that we’ve been chatting for years. He was Broke-Ass of the Week back in 2014 and then when I ran for mayor in 2015 he had me on his show Redacted Tonight to talk about the election. Lee’s a radical truth digger and fucking hilarious. And he’s performing with one of my favorite comics, Nato Green, for one night only in SF on Saturday.

A little more about Lee:
Lee Camp is the head writer and host of the national TV show Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp. He’s a former contributor to The Onion, former staff humor writer for the Huffington Post, and his web series “Moment of Clarity” has been viewed by millions. He’s toured the country and the world with his fierce brand of standup comedy, and George Carlin’s daughter Kelly said he’s one of the few comics keeping her father’s torch lit. Bill Hicks’s brother Steve said Lee is one of only a handful with Bill’s “message and passion.”
