About This Event

Jane Bussmann, British comedy writer of South Park, has cooked up trouble with shows and advocacy around the world since the day she first came face-to-face with the Lord's Resistance Army and a certain peacemaker John Prendergast. She has had audiences in stitches all over the world from Uganda to Sydney, Australia.

Her book, originally published in the United Kingdom, is an outrageous satire on Hollywood, charities, and the international community's farcical failure to capture Joseph Kony, and it was The London Times pick of the week. Nicholas Kristof says, "She nailed it. Who knew war in Uganda could be hilarious as well as moving?" Reuters said, “So funny you almost feel guilty laughing.”

Please join the Center for American Progress for a special live performance of the first-ever comedy sketch to be performed inside the U.K. Parliament. The performance will be followed by a conversation on the issues with Bussmann and Prendergast.

Copies of the book will be on available for purchase at the event.
