Studs and Jules Feiffer read several of Feiffer’s political cartoons culminating in a performance of “Feiffer’s America.” The performance is preceded by Feiffer’s explanation of the inspiration behind these works. Feiffer attempts to answer what drives him to create these astute observations of political happenings, which are often used as an outlet for his anger regarding social and political events. Studs plays "On the Good Ship Lollipop" - Shirley Temple (1934).
