P. J. O'Rourke, one of America's premier political satirists, is the best-selling author of fifteen books.  He has written for such diverse publications as AutomobileThe Weekly StandardHouse and GardenForeign PolicyThe New York Times Book ReviewForbes FYI , Rolling Stone and The Atlantic Monthly. 

His best-selling books include Don’t VoteParliament of WhoresGive War a ChanceEat the Rich, The CEO of the SofaPeace Kills and On the Wealth of Nation. Both Time and The Wall Street Journal have called him “the funniest writer in America.”  He frequently appears on television, and is a regular panelist on National Public Radio’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.

In the early 1970’s, P.J. joined The National Lampoon where he became the editor-in-chief and created, with Doug Kenney, the now classic 1964 High School Yearbook Parody.  In the 1980’s, he decided the real world was funnier than anything National Lampoon’s writers could invent, so he became a roving reporter covering crises and conflicts around the world.

Annabelle Gurwitch is an actress and author of  the upcoming book of essays, I See you Made an Effort. Her earlier book, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up, is a self-hurt marital memoir co-written with her husband, Jeff Kahn, now a theatrical play in its third national tour; and Fired! Tales of the Caned, Canceled, Downsized & Dismissed. Her Fired! documentary premiered as a Showtime Comedy Special and played film festivals around the world. Gurwitch gained a loyal comedic following during her numerous years co-hosting the cult favorite, Dinner & a Movie; her acting credits include Dexter, Boston Legal, Seinfeld, Melvin Goes to Dinner, The Shaggy Dog and Not Necessarily The News on HBO. Most recently, she starred in the adaptation of Grace Paley’s A Coney Island Christmas by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Donald Margulies at The Geffen Playhouse. She has served as a regular commentator on NPR and a humorist for TheNation.com. Her writing has appeared in More, Marie Claire, Men's Health, Los Angeles Times and elsewhere. Gurwitch is a passionate environmentalist, a reluctant atheist, and lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles.
