An Evening with Fran Lebowitz

Sep 07, 2024
7:30 PM


Fran Lebowitz returns to Philadelphia to share her wickedly sharp take on the world as it is. In a cultural landscape with endless pundits and talking heads, she stands out as one of the most insightful social commentators.

Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media — as well as her 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 gold standard for intelligence, efficiency and humour. Now and forever.” – David Sedaris

“She’s inexhaustible – her personality, her knowledge, her brilliance, and most of all her humour.” – Martin Scorsese

“The rare example of a legend living up to her own mythology. She really is THAT funny” – Hadley Freeman, The Times
