Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Evan Sayet, one of America’s top conservative comedians. While he keeps Americans laughing at the Left, his serious work is also greatly respected — like his lecture to the Heritage Foundation, which has dubbed by many as “The unified field theory of Liberalism.” Right Wing News recently described Evan as “One of the twenty-five most influential Jewish conservatives in America.”
Evan is holding one of his nights of conservative stand-up comedy – a pure skewering of Liberalism — with special guest stars Sonja Schmidt and Patty Smith as “The Ladies of the Right” on March 25th in Westlake Village near L.A, so we thought it would be a good time to sit him down with him for a quick interview.
FP: Evan, thanks for being here.
ES: My pleasure, but with an intro like that, I’m afraid I’m out of time.
FP: Well, just a couple of questions, then.
ES: Shoot. Oh, wait, I shouldn’t have said that, it might incite violence. Go ahead.
FP: Well, what exactly is “conservative comedy?”
ES: It’s just my shorthand, a way of letting my potential audience know that it’s, first, a night of political humor and that that humor is going to reflect the values of grown-ups who love and care about America, Judeo-Christian values, morality, decency and all the things Democrats hate.
FP: Why’d you pick this particular venue?
ES: I knew right from the start that I didn’t want to do my events in comedy clubs if I could help it. I wanted venues that were more like night clubs of old. That’s why, for the first several years, when I did shows in the LA area, I did it at the Friars Club in Beverly Hills. But then they went under. Then I found this quaint little club – Fiamme — with great food and the right atmosphere so now, when I’m in town and working on new material, it’s the perfect venue.
FP: Do you ever have leftists in the audience?
ES: It’s rare, as the means I use to promote the events targets Republicans and conservatives, but sometimes one or two come by to try and feel out “the enemy” and sometimes a conservative brings a Liberal friend to have them hear the other side. It’s great when you get them alone cause they have no idea what to do or say.
FP: How can people get tickets?
ES: All they need to do is go to my website at evansayet.com. Click on the first page and all the information is there.
FP: Thanks, Evan.
ES: Thanks, Jamie.
FP: We encourage all of our readers at Frontpage who are in the area to make it out to this great night of conservative stand-up comedy. Again, it’s on March 25th in Westlake Village near L.A. Don’t miss it!
