Political satirists and trouble makers, The Yes Men, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, have gained global acclaim and notoriety for impersonating representatives of powerful corporations and government organizations to expose dehumanizing business practices and help keep critical issues in the international spotlight.
In their insightful and thoroughly entertaining multimedia presentation, The Yes Men will discuss their elaborate hoaxes by revisiting props and unreleased footage from their recent and classic exploits – from pretending to be Exxon Mobil and McDonald’s representatives at press and business conferences to making highly controversial declarations on major news networks.
DVDs will be available for purchase and signing at this event. Showtime is 8pm.
