Performance Notes

× In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan. The New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an “important humorist in the classic tradition.” Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker.

The New York Times calls Lebowitz “ unlikely and perhaps alarming combination of Mary Hartman and Mary McCarthy. . . . To a dose of Huck Finn add some Lenny Bruce, Oscar Wilde and Alexis deTocqueville, a dash of cabdriver, an assortment of puns, minced jargon, and top it off with smarty pants.” —New York Times

Lebowitz is the first guest in the new Cap U speaker series, re-launching to mark the university’s 50th anniversary.
