Lizz With Two Zs, Not Liza With a Z (what a stupid fucking headline)

If you want to read one of the most astute, funniest pieces on reproductive rights ever, read Lizz Winstead's recent "Why Are They So Sure Anyone Can Do the Hardest Job in the World?'" at nationalmemo.com. Winstead makes the point that, with all the anti-choice legislation going on across the country, having a working uterus is not the same as passing an aptitude test for motherhood. As she puts it, she's opting out of motherhood because "society would not be a better place" if she took the job. Winstead, co-founder of The Daily Show (thank you) and Air America, is book-touring with her new collection of essays, Lizz Free or Die. At Trepany House at the Steve Allen Theater, she'll perform her politically charged stand-up, which repeatedly socks it to the media. On terrorist attacks: "I'm not afraid of any of this. You know why? Because I eat street meat. That's how edgy I am." She'll also read from the book and sign copies. Trepany House at Steve Allen Theater, 4773 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Wed., May 23, 8 p.m.; $20, $15 in advance. (323) 666-4268, trepanyhouse.org. Also at Vroman's, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena; Thurs., May 24, 7 p.m.; free, book is $25.95. (626) 449-5320.
Wed., May 23, 8 p.m., 2012
