Lee is a comic/political activist/author. He is perhaps best known for two things: his early support of the Occupy movement (he performed at more than a dozen protests in the U.S. and Canada) and his appearance on Fox News, where he went off script during a live broadcast. He has just turned his popular Moment of Clarity web series into a book of the same name. His edgy style has been compared to Bill Hicks and George Carlin by the Guardian and Time Out. He is an in-demand commentator and satirist who tours internationally.
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller — Read it when I was 23, and it changed both my worldview and my comedy. I’m not sure any other book has had as much impact on my career and life.
Confessions of An Economic Hitman by John Perkins — Also changed my worldview.
The Wisdom of Insecurity by Alan Watts — We’re only here for a second. Do something with that second.
Why Does E = mc2? by Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw — Just happen to be reading this right now. Never was good in math and science classes, but holy sh** the universe is magical!
Marcel The Shell With Shoes On by Jenny Slate & Dean Fleischer-Camp — The new children’s book my brother and his fiancé wrote. I marvel at the creativity.
Have any books changed your worldview?
