Shameless Plug VI

Looking for a few laughs on a Thursday night? America's Premiere Live News-Comedy Game Show, The News Distillery, returns to New York's 92nd St. Y Tribeca on July 1, 15, and 29.

Hosted by Faith Salie, CBS Sunday Morning contributor and star of Planet Green's Treehugger TV, News Distillery panelists include MTV and Comedy Central writer-producer Gideon Evans, McSweeney's advice columnist and web show host Alison Rosen, New York Times "The Ethicist" columnist Randy Cohen, and comedians Brian Donovan (NBC, VH1), Dean Obeidallah (The View, Comedy Central's Axis of Evil) and Chuck Nice (The Today Show, TruTV), who face off in a no-holds barred competition to be the funniest, fastest, best-informed, and possibly prettiest news junkie in New York.

Plus there's air conditioning (free) and beer (nominal charge).
