It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fucked)

Lee Papa


Edgy. Political. Funny.

A brazen return to Calgary!

Over a decade ago, Lee Papa brought the wild show The Road to Rude to the HPRodeo. This daring show tackled surviving the Bush years when he didn't think things could get worse. He was very wrong.

From the business talents of Stormy Daniels to ranting anti-abortion protesters in the Deep South to Trump himself at one of his tacky golf resorts, It’s the End ofthe World... is a personal and political journey into the clogged heart of the USA, into how we got so fucked and whether we can get un-fucked. Funny and angry,profane and perverse, Lee Papa goes to war with the present so we can try to have a future.


Lee Papa is a writer and actor who has performed sold-out solo shows in the U.S. and Canada. The New York Times called him "a tornado of a writer" and "a child of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, and Hunter S. Thompson." His profane political blog, The Rude Pundit, has been going for over 16 years, with thousands of weekly readers.


Lee Papa teaches playwriting and political theatre at the College of Staten Island/City University of New York.
