Evan Sayet Bio
Evan Sayet has enjoyed the most eclectic of careers. After more than two decades as a stand-up comedian, screenwriter and documentary producer, Evan re-examined his politics and joined the war on the right side. Since then, his lectures to the Heritage Foundation have become legendary, his books (including The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks) have become bestsellers and his articles for outlets such as Townhall and David Horowitz's Front Page magazines record-breaking.
Evan advised the presidential campaign of Ted Cruz, wrote the infamous "Al Smith dinner" speech for then-candidate Trump as well as the Gridiron dinner speech for now President Trump.
Rush Limbaugh, Sebastian Gorka, Larry Elder and Dennis Prager all use the same one word to describe Evan, "brilliant," and his latest talk, The Heirs to Hitler is his most compelling and important talk yet. Look for its release in book form in the early spring.
