The Borowitz Report on the Future

In a totally improvised and spontaneous program, cybersatirist Andy Borowitz will answer the audience's questions about what the future holds for current events, pop culture, sports, business, and Paris Hilton, with the guarantee that he will be at least as accurate as the New York Post. Borowitz, who enlightens the world daily with his Internet column, The Borowitz Report, has made a career of writing headlines for news stories that haven't happened yet:

****ANN COULTER SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUSTS*****

***********IRAQIS FAIL TO LOVE RAYMOND*****

****BUSH STATES OPPOSITION TO GAY DIVORCE****

to name just three.

Bring your most daring and world-stopping questions that even your personal astrologer can't answer, and Andy will ripen the possibilities that you and a roomful of intimate buddies will be the best informed gadflies on the planet.
