It's no surprise that one of the journalists who broke the era-defining Watergate Scandal story does not shy away from controversy, a feat he has once again performed with the 2018 release of his 18th book 'Fear', a damning look at the current administration's White House and the chaos within. Having once again caused a national furor, the veteran journalist returns to the road to talk 'Fear' and pass on further insights from his storied career as one of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue's most venerated chroniclers.

In what has been a whirlwind rise to popularity in the last few years, she's the only female to have won the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing, her debut comedy special Warpaint was one of the most downloaded comedy specials on Itunes and Netflix picked up her follow up Freezing Hot, a hilarious stand-up special that showcases her high-energy observational routine and sparky digs at the gender divide.
