Evan Sayet, has written and/or produced in virtually every medium there is. Starting out as a standup comic he was quickly spotted by David Letterman and offered a spot on a special episode featuring young talent. Segueing into writing, he was an integral part of the team that made “The Arsenio Hall Show” the first late night program in thirty years to give “The Tonight Show” a run for its money and then the very first Creative Consultant on the highly respected “Politically Incorrect”. After that Evan wrote and produced the highest rated special in Discovery’s The Learning Channel’s history (“The 70’s: From Bellbottoms to Boogie Shoes”), perfected the book for a musical comedy, wrote a screenplay optioned by Penny Marshall and even tried his hand at game shows – as the original writer of the cult classic “Win Ben Stein’s Money.”
Evan is the creator, and star of “The Right To Laugh,” which is the longest running conservative comedy show in America.
Evan’s career is divided almost exactly down the middle, his time split between his political humor and his more serious lectures. About his comedy, Ann Coulter says “Who makes me laugh? Easy. Evan Sayet.” while Michael Barone of US News and World Report opines, “Evan has crossed that line from ‘funny to important.’” His serious work includes “Regurgitating the Apple: How The Modern Liberal ‘Thinks,’” which he delivered to the Heritage Foundation.
Andrew Breitbart called that talk “One of the five most important conservative speeches ever given.”
Evan is the author of the new book, “The KinderGarden Of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks (And Why He’s Convinced That Ignorance Is Bliss) – available here at Evan’s store, and at Amazon.
