David Litt - Thanks, Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Litt worked at the White House from 2011 to 2016, leaving as a special assistant to President Obama and senior presidential speechwriter—the youngest in history. He supplied remarks on the major issues of the day, but his focus was humor and his job might more accurately be termed “comic muse to the president.” Now the head writer/producer for Funny or Die’s D.C. office, LItt contributed jokes to Obama’s speeches as early as 2009 and was the lead writer on four White House Correspondents’ Dinner presentations. Along with the laughs and the sparkling behind-the-scenes anecdotes about daily life at the White House, Litt’s political-coming-of-age story is a serious contribution to the project of representing the legacy and future of the Obama movement in the age of Trump.
