LEVIATHAN : POLITICAL CABARET
US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION SPECIAL
8 PM ’til LATE
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH
THE BUTTON FACTORY,
TEMPLE BAR, DUBLIN
It’s a campaign that has captured the attention and imagination of people across the globe like never before.
It’s a campaign that has been the most intensely analysed, scrutinised and satirised in living memory.
It’s a campaign whose historical climax on November 4th you are going to want to experience as fully as is possible in Ireland.
Leviathan Political Cabaret marks its relaunch with a very special and unique event which will capture all the excitement, elation and despair over the course of one night as it becomes clear who will lead the United States and, arguably, the Western World, for the next four years.
The event will be hosted by author, economist and broadcaster David McWilliams with a rolling panel of experts, academics, American ex-pats, politicians and commentators.
American exile Richard Delevan will man the blog desk, monitoring online activity and analysing leaked exit polls, rumours and breaking news.
There will be expert analysis of the media coverage of the campaign and polling day with live big-screen links to Fox, NBC, CNN and others.
Paddy Cullivan will report live from New York City with subversive commentary and music and some very special guests.
Free Wi-Fi will be available for live blogging.
Tickets â‚¬25 available from www.tickets.ie

The media all did everything they could to marginalize him. Because he was a threat to the entire profit for… Read more »
This presidential election in America is unique in so many counts. To me the varieties of issues facing the country and the whole race and coverage with analysis and allegation, counter allegation is also unique. But the point which I would like to emphasize here; the most important for me is the responsibility which this election puts on our shoulder. This responsibility is to casting the votes with understanding and caution not for the short term or emotional influence but keeping in mind the larger prospective of this great country’s future. So each one of eligible voters must use the… Read more »
