People leave work early so they can get home to watch The Beat with Ari Melber. Ari will explore the world of cable news and how he manages to keep it all straight when events are cascading around us minute by minute (including the names of all the Russian oligarchs). Joining him will be one of his favorite hip-hop artists Tee Grizzley (“First Day Out’), plus Roger McNamee, author of Zucked which the New York Times calls “superb...stirring...robust and helpful”, as well as, Chapter VII of our serialized novella “Author to Come” written by author Shalom Auslander (Foreskin’s Lament, Hope: a Tragedy). Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA Ann Temkin will explain how a painting gets to the museum and it isn’t by Uber. Jazz Legend Jay Leonhart leads the 1-Train Band.

Past participants rave:
“In Your Face—New York is so much fun to watch because everyone is having so much fun on stage! I loved being part of the show.” - Isaac Mizrahi
“Many shows have tried but only In Your Face has succeeded in capturing on stage what makes living in New York so special. Where else will you find an accordionist, expert wine spitter and a hedge fund manager sharing the same space? I mean, besides the 7 train...I love the show!” - Mo Rocca
“Running over with a kind of urban good cheer that seemed to belong to an earlier era of New York satiric revues of a kind kept me high on my toes all night.” - Adam Gopnik
“It's a joyous celebration of all that NYC is to be able to come together with different kinds of writers/artists and entertain our friends and neighbors.” - AM Holmes
“It was so much fun to participate in In Your Face New York. It was very warm and unpretentious. Great performers, great audience!” - Roz Chast
“I'm thrilled to be part of In Your Face. It's high time this NY based show finally dealt with our wonderful food!” - Ruth Reichl
Producer Martin Sage says the show’s underlying theme will be humor, which he calls “critical, because most people don’t have access to the halls of power and we’re constantly in a position of punching up – meaning that if you don’t feel you have the power to change anything, the power you do have is to clarify things and shine a light on them.” -- Haaretz
