Mad about the media? Comedian Ron Placone will explain why and leave you laughing

 13 09 02 place one
September 03, 2013

Comedian Ron Placone hosts his one-man show “Madness in the Message” at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 in Decker Auditorium, Lewis Hall of Science. Admission is free.

“How is a profit-driven mass media affecting democracy – and what can we do about it? Placone explores this question in a provocative multimedia performance of media criticism and comedy that’s described as “‘The Daily Show’ meets the BBC series ‘How TV Ruined Your Life’ with an academic edge.” Placone, who developed his skit as a final project to earn his master’s degree (in Rhetoric and Philosophy) promises a tour through a contemporary media landscape where advertisers, owners and special interest groups come first and the general public comes dead last.
