"Ben Burgis has written a clarifying, humorous and sharp as hell wake up call for the left, and political culture at large. Read this book..." - Michael Brooks, host of The Michael Brooks Show

Between the decline of the labor movement, the aftershocks of the falls of so-called "actually existing socialism," and the long exile of even social democrats from the levers of real power, we have gotten far too used to thinking of leftism as a performative exercise in expressing our political commitments rather than a serious effort to achieve left-wing goals in the real world. Cancelling Comedians While the World Burns calls for a smarter, funnier, more strategic left.
