Limited Tickets Remain for A Conversation with Fran Lebowitz

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Nov. 18, 2022 – The long-awaited A Conversation with Fran Lebowitz promises to be an evening full of poignant and unapologetic humor, wit and sneer. Presented as part of the Coca–Cola Night Out Series, the comedian, artistic icon and purveyor of cool will visit Walton Arts Center at 7 pm on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Originally rescheduled from February 2022 due to inclement weather, limited tickets are available for $27-45 and can be purchased online at waltonartscenter.org, by visiting the box office weekdays 10 am – 2 pm or by calling 479.443.5600 weekdays 10 am – 5 pm.

Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of the most insightful commentators of our time, offering acerbic views on current events and social media, as well as her thoughts on tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French and everything in between. New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an “important humorist in the classic tradition.”

Lebowitz was first discovered by Andy Warhol; he recruited her as a columnist for Interview. That was followed by a stint at Mademoiselle. Her first book, a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, was a bestseller, as was a second collection, Social Studies. Lebowitz is also the author of the children’s book, Mr. Chas and Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas.

From 2001 to 2007, Lebowitz had a recurring role as Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama “Law & Order.” She also had a part in the Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street and several documentary films, such as The American Experience, Scorsese’s Public Speaking and Pretend It’s A City.
