The "Rude Pundit" to Address WVSU Students

INSTITUTE, W.Va. --  Writer, professor, and performer Lee Papa, known as the "Rude Pundit" will deliver a lecture, discussion, demonstration at West Virginia State University on Thursday, Nov. 11. His remarks will begin at 1:30 p.m. in 104 Davis Fine Arts Building. The event is open the public.
    
Papa's two-year old political blog has tens of thousands of readers each week, from all over the world. The New York Times called Papa "a tornado of a writer" and "a child of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Hunter S. Thompson" whose "ferocious column" attracts "shrewd, passionate fans." His one-man performance, The Rude Pundit in The Year of Living Rudely, was the first show to sell out before it opened in the history of the New York International Fringe Festival. The Rude Pundit has been cited by CNN, The Washington Post, and other media outlets.

Papa is currently a professor of drama and playwriting in the Department of English at the College of Staten Island/CUNY, working with students to develop new works for the stage. His book, Staged Action: Plays from the American Workers' Theater was published in May 2009.
