Every four years, journalists try to make sense of the nation’s biggest story: the race for the presidency. With one of the country’s most consequential elections on the horizon, Selected Shorts considers the twists and turns of campaigns past—the in-fighting and back-biting, the leads blown and punches thrown—to help make sense of the present. Collecting excerpts and stories from writers such as Hunter S. Thompson, Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper hosts an evening of readings about a world he knows from the inside out. With performances by Samantha Bee (Full Frontal), Crystal Dickinson (The Chi), Aasif Mandvi (Evil), Alexandra Petri (columnist, The Washington Post), and Roy Wood, Jr. (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah).
