About Lee:
“Gets the crowd roaring!” –Rolling Stone

NYC-based comedian Lee Camp is a contributor to the Onion and he has appeared on The Green Room with Paul Provenza. He was a featured performer on Comedy Central’s “Fresh Debate,” and he’s done comedic commentary on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” BBC’s “Newsnight,” PBS, E!Network, SpikeTV, MTV, and ABC’s Good Morning America. Lee is featured in the recent bestseller “Satiristas!” along with George Carlin, Bill Maher, and Stephen Colbert. Lee also provided catharsis for millions of people when he went live on Fox News and called the network a “parade of propaganda and a festival of ignorance.”
What others are saying:
  • “This up-and-coming US star is already developing a reputation for fearless political comedy, with some calling him an heir to the crown of the late, great George Carlin. ….He gets our seal of approval.” –Time Out Sydney
  •  “Lee Camp is an amazing writer and a great political thinker. He’s the change you and I want to see.” –Janeane Garofalo 
  • “Like Jon Stewart from the Daily Show but with sharper teeth.” –the Herald
  • “Smart, clever, wonderful.” –Dick Gregory
  • “Super impressive.” –Roseanne Barr 
  • “For those comedy fans still in mourning for Bill Hicks 18 years on, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in the work of DC-born stand-up Lee Camp. Like Hicks, Camp has a visceral disregard for big business and big politics, and speaks his mind on everything from abortion rights to the evils of the modern media. However, where Hicks was more of a commentator who stayed above the fray, Camp is much closer to British activist-comics like Mark Thomas, a real-life serial protester.” –The Guardian 
  • "I wanted to say three things about Mr Camp that really remind me of my father, one of which is he is a thinking persons’ comic, he may just piss you off a little bit, but the most important thing is he's really fucking funny!" - Kelly Carlin
Lee Camp comes to Pittsburgh one night only to Hambone’s in Lawrenceville, February 1, 2013 at 8:30pm. Comedian Ron Placone opens the show and the evening will be hosted by Krish Mohan.
