Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

An Evening with Fran Lebowitz

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, author and journalist, 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.

A new limited documentary series, Pretend It’s a City, directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on Netflix January 8, 2021.

An Evening with Fran Lebowitz will be moderated by Luke Burbank, host of the public radio variety show Live Wire, correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and panelist on NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.
