Rick Horowitz: We're Talking Funny!
"Smart, witty, my kind of comedy."
"This was GREAT -- you should have more speakers like this guy."
They're talking about Rick Horowitz, the Emmy-winning TV commentator and syndicated columnist. Irreverent, inventive, and right on top of the news, Rick has been taking his wit and wisdom out on the road. And now he's available for your next event.
That's right: Rick is hitting the speakers' circuit, offering his entertaining insights on "Washington, and Other Contact Sports." Politics and life, large events and small - they all get the distinctive Horowitz treatment.
"Face it," he says. "Some of the things going on out there are laughable - it would be impolite not to notice."
Rick notices - and then some. His columns tickle readers coast to coast with a creative mix of political satire and offbeat social commentary. He's also become a familiar face on camera with his reliably unpredictable (and always fascinating) observations for Milwaukee Public Television's InterCHANGE. And he's won lots more than that Emmy. In fact, his impressive list of national and statewide honors includes two prestigious National Headliner Awards and recognition from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.
Before moving beyond the Beltway, Rick actually lived in Our Nation's Capital where, among other things, he worked as an actual Washington lawyer and as an actual legislative assistant on Capitol Hill. He also served a stint as a commentator for NPR's All Things Considered, and remains a frequent contributor to Hexagon, Washington's popular musical/satirical revue.
So he knows how they play the game, and he's quick to blow the whistle (or is it the kazoo?) when somebody steps out of bounds. He's also got plenty to say about the little absurdities of real life. Turn him loose in front of your group and get ready for laughs - and more.
"An authentic, original American voice," says one admirer. "In fact, several authentic, original American voices." Hear them for yourself.
You should definitely have more speakers like this guy.
