The Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center is hosting an engaging and entertaining evening: “Town Hall with Greg Gutfeld and Dana Perino”. They will be discussing valuable insights from both of their New York Times best sellers with the added bonus of Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Larry Gatlin for a few of his best-known tunes and some timely humor.
This Town Hall event will combine Greg’s razor-sharp wit with Dana’s no-nonsense political savvy to share their thoughts on the upcoming presidential primaries, news of the day, and culminating with a Q & A session. The same positive chemistry that makes Greg roll his eyes and Dana giggle on “The Five” every weekday afternoon at 5:00 PM EST (FOX News Channel), will offer an intimate and entertaining evening of interaction at The Sharon Center.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
Gutfeld’s recent book – “How to be Right, The Art of Being Persuasively Correct” and … Perino’s “And the Good News Is… Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side” will be made available at the conclusion of the evening, when both authors will be signing their books.
Tickets are now on sale (CLICK HERE) and will be offered at “Gold” and “Silver” levels. Gold seat patrons will receive a signed copy of their choice of Greg’s or Dana’s latest book and the opportunity to attend a “Meet and Greet/Photo Op” session before the performance.
New York Times Best Selling Author, Greg Gutfeld has been called “outrageous and outspoken,” neither of which he denies. A libertarian political satirist, humorist, magazine editor and blogger, he is perhaps best known as the co-host of the Fox News Channel program “The Five” a weekday program at 5 p.m. ET and his other show “The Greg Gutfeld Show” airs at 10pm. ET Sunday evenings, and covers a variety of topics, including news, entertainment, sports, and gossip with special guests.
The Weekly Standard calls him “the most dangerous man on television.” According to the magazine, unlike other media darlings, “Gutfeld’s stuff actually is subversive, a stink bomb hurled into every faculty lounge, mainstream newsroom, movie studio, and nonprofit boardroom in America.”
He is the author of several books, among them, The New York Times Best Sellers “How to be Right, The Art of Being Persuasively Correct” “Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage” and “Not Cool, The Hipster Elite and Their War on You.” Other books include, “The Bible of Unspeakable Truths,” which garnered praise and pithy quotes from the likes of Dennis Miller, Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter and Andrew Breitbart, founder of BigGovernment.com and Breitbart.com, who said: “Trust me, you don’t want him setting his sights on your hypocrisy and public failings.”
Dana Perino is one of the nation’s most popular political commentators and the co-host and breakout star of Fox’s The Five, the No. 1 five o’clock show and the third most-watched program in all of cable. She is also the author of the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book, And the Good News Is…Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side, a thoughtful and inspiring look at life and politics. In the same energetic style that has made her so popular on TV and with audiences across the country, Perino brings a unique viewpoint from her time inside the White House, providing insights into the current political climate that will give organizations a clear picture of the changes to come.
As only the second female press secretary in U.S. history (and the first female Republican) and one of the most widely-respected members of President Bush’s senior staff, she is a keen analyst of the latest political news and an expert in crafting and communicating key messages under stressful conditions. Equally great as an individual keynote or paired with a Democratic counterpart, Perino is a larger-than-life personality as she shares insights and stories about the current political situation in America today.
The Voice of the White House. Dana Perino served as the White House press secretary to President George W. Bush from 2007–2009. An expert on healthcare, energy policy, and female leaders in government and business, she communicates with audiences with the same clarity and precision that gained the respect of the rough-and-tumble White House press corps. Calling on her experience working closely with the president, she also speaks about management and leadership, encouraging peak performance, and fostering debate to encourage better decision-making.
Post-White House. Perino is president of the strategic communications firm Dana Perino and Company and a frequent public speaker on how politics affects people outside the beltway. She spent time volunteering at an HIV/AIDS treatment center in South Africa and has developed a unique interest in the areas of women’s rights and maternal health, especially in Africa. In 2011, she collaborated with fellow Governor Susan McCue to launch Congo Story, a website that shines light on the brutal realities of daily life for women in Africa. She is also the founder of Minute Mentoring, an organization focused on giving professional guidance to young women. Additionally, she serves on the boards of Mothers Day Every Day, Running Start, ONE Campaign, and Pets2Vets, and President Obama nominated her to the Broadcasting Board of Governors in 2009.
Clear Lines of Communication. Before she joined the White House, Perino was a spokesperson at the Department of Justice. Two years later, she moved to the White House to do communications work for the Council on Environmental Quality. Altogether, she spent more than seven years serving in the Bush administration. Her political experience also includes working on Capitol Hill for Rep. Dan Schaefer (R-CO) and Rep. Scott McInnis (R-CO).
Perino worked as a journalist before turning to politics and is a former commentariat for the Washington Post, POLITICO, and National Review.
Larry Gatlin’s talent has brought him many rewards: international fame, a Grammy, a truckload of #1 songs, a starring role on Broadway and two films. The oldest of the three Gatlin brothers, he was by age seven, already accompanying younger brothers, Steve and Rudy, in singing at family and church events.
After high school, Gatlin went to the University of Houston on a football scholarship. He majored in English and developed “a love affair with the English Language” that later served him in his songwriting. On the strength of his songwriting talents, Gatlin became known throughout Nashville music industry. While his brothers were finishing college, Gatlin was already touring the small club and listening room circuit as a solo act, looking forward to the time when he could afford to expand his live show to include his brothers.
Gatlin released his first album, The Pilgram, in 1974 and hit #1 the next year with Broken Lady, a song that fetched him a Grammy in 1976. In the middle of the decade, the Gatlin boys once again joined forces. Armed with an array of college degrees, life experience, and in the studio little sister LaDonna (who, along with Rudy and Steve had been opening for Tammy Wynette), the hits started flowing. In 1977, the group went to #1 again with I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love. It would happen again in 1979 with All The Gold In California. December 1992 marked a farewell to concert touring for the Gatlin brothers. Then came a major turning point in his career. Gatlin took the lead role in the Tony award winning best musical The Will Rogers Follies. He appeared in the movies To Die, To Sleep and Outlaws: The Legend of O. B. Taggart.
