Three caricatures of cartoonists Dave Barry, Mike Peters and Mike Luckovich

Laughter in the Time of Cholera An Evening with Dave Barry, Mike Luckovich and Mike Peters



For better or worse, our current political times have kept editorial comics on their toes. Three of the greats – who happen to be old pals – share their thoughts and pen a few sketches in an uproarious evening that proves it’s better to laugh than cry. Afterward, Barry, Luckovich and Peters will join guests at an intimate dinner party just two blocks away (ticketed separately) to talk further and field questions.

Dave Barry is the author of more books than he can count, ran a nationally syndicated column from the Miami Herald from 1983 to 2005, and had his life turned into TV with Dave’s World, the 1990’s CBS sitcom. Mike Peters lands on the doorstep of 100 million Americans every morning with his 35-year-running comic strip Mother Goose & Grimm, and regularly skewers the political class with his editorial cartoons. Mike Luckovich is another titan in the pantheon of editorial cartoonists, balancing satire and compassion with nationally syndicated panels from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. All three boast a shelf full of awards, Barry and Peters have a  Pulitzer Prize apiece, and Luckovich has two!


Barry, Luckovich and Peters, along with their colleagues Jim Borgman, David Hume Kennerly and Susie MacNelly judge the Jeff MacNelly Memorial Scholarship, now in its 19th year, which provides $5,000 annually to a Key West High School graduating senior for critical thinking-editorial cartooning. This year’s MacNelly winner will be acknowledged at The Studios on March 9.
