March 20 – Up The Amazon Without a Paddle
Olivia LaVecchia, Institute for Local Self Reliance
Is there a downside to being able to get 10,000 baby wipes delivered to your house in under an hour? We’ll ask Olivia LaVecchia, co-author of a report of Amazon’s effects on local communities and businesses.
Described as “What could become Minnesota's answer to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert,” The Theater of Public Policy (T2P2 for short) uses improv comedy to reframe hard, thinky stuff.
Using real on-stage conversations with newsmakers and big thinkers, T2P2 makes issues come alive through improv comedy theater. Each night:
- The show’s host interviews a leading thinker on a big issue
- Then a team of the Twin Cities’ most talented improvisers use the conversation as inspiration for longform improv comedy
- In the second-half of the show, the guest answers questions from the audience
- The show wraps up with more no-holds-barred unscripted comedy
No two performances are the same but the results are always surprise and delight. See a short video about how The Theater of Public Policy works at: http://t2p2.net/videos/

Finnegans Food Drive
The Theater of Public Policy is thrilled to be partnering with Finnegans. Together we’ll drink beer and feed the hungry. Bring a non-perishable canned good to any T2P2 show at the Bryant Lake Bowl and receive $2 off a Finnegans that night! We’ll put all the donations in a barrel, and the night it’s filled to the top, everyone in the audience will get a free Finnegans!
