I am looking forward to attending the 2017 Politicon (www.politicon.com), the “Unconventional Political Convention,” that is headlined by Adam Carolla and a multitude of The Daily Show contributors for the upcoming third annual convention (July 29 -30). Millions of fans have been watching late night shows, comics and reading posts from a variety of viewpoints. Longtime wonks and newly passionate voters have the opportunity to not only attend panels, socialize with other attendees and the Democracy Village. I’ve perused the announced panels and have a couple of my ‘must attend’ (see below). CNN will take over the Democracy Village stage for an entire day of programming on Saturday, July 29 featuring Jake Tapper, Chris Cillizza, Brianna Keilar, Dylan Byers, Hunter Schwarz, and Kate Bennett. To close out the day, Jake Tapper will host a special edition of CNN’s Politics on Tap a barroom event series that pairs powerhouse political figures with an intimate crowd for an interview over cocktails. Tickets are available for purchase online ($50 per day or $80 for the weekend): www.politicon.com/tickets/ The first 5,000 people to purchase Politicon tickets will also receive a complimentary copy of CNN’s bookUnprecedented: The Election That Changed Everything upon entry to Politicon in July.
“I don’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, liberal or conservative, as long as you’re not stupid and you’re not a liar,” Adam Carolla said. “I can’t wait to get to Politicon to knock some sense into these people!”
