Jules Feiffer – Screenwriter, Cartoonist, Playwright



Join Aaron on stage at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, NY for a remarkable evening with legendary, Pulitzer-winning screenwriter and cartoonist, Jules Feiffer.

Recorded on Jules’s 90th birthday, after a screening of his 1970s masterpiece, Carnal Knowledge (starring Jack Nicholson, Dir. Mike Nichols), Jules walks us through this extraordinary film, his collaboration with Nicholson, Nichols, Bergen, and Garfunkel, as well as touching on his lengthy career as America’s best known satirist.

Winner of the Polk Award, an Oscar, an Obie, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Pulitzer, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the WGA, this is a rare opportunity to hear from a living legend.

Mark Harris — Film Journalist, Writer, Biographer



One of the most brilliant writers, reporters, and commentators on film, Mark Harris joins Aaron for the hour. Mark’s book, Pictures at a Revolution, about the Best Picture nominees of 1968 as a lens through which to view a cultural revolution and shift in filmmaking, is one of Aaron’s all-time favorites. Mark’s follow-up, Five Came Back, about the iconoclastic directors whose work and lives were forever changed by their experiences in World War 2, became a Netflix series, narrated by Meryl Streep, and starring 5 of their filmmaking descendants: Coppola, del Toro, Greengrass, Kasdan, and Spielberg.

Mark’s upcoming book, the definitive biography of Mike Nichols, has Aaron counting the days till its release.
