The Working Poet Radio Show

Whether it's Twitter, YouTube or Instagram, digital media are changing the business world, one click at a time. The whole concept of sharing has swiftly become more than social, and if you've seen Jon Favreau's latest film, Chef, you'll understand how quickly your Twitter game can change your career. Enter The Working Poet Radio Show, a new monthly radio and television talk show sponsored by the Los Angeles Public Library, which seeks to explore the lives of creative people. The June 4 show, "Working With Humor," will focus on comedians and how digital media are changing their professional lives. Sit with the live audience and listen as L.A. success stories Flula Borg, a German techno DJ; Key & Peele director Jay Martel; and best-selling author Pamela Ribon discuss how humor has changed because of social media. "It's such a struggle for people to get to where they want to be," says show host (and L.A. Weekly contributor) Joseph Lapin on the struggle to be successful while maintaining creativity. "This show appeals to those who want to be creative." Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library, 630 W. Fifth St.; Wed., June 4, 7 p.m.; free. (213) 228-7338, theworkingpoetradioshow.com.
Wed., June 4, 7 p.m., 2014 (Expired: 06/04/14)
