Up Close & Political is the show where comedians do stand-up on the big issues of our time, followed by a discussion with experts in the field and you, the audience.
The housing crisis is causing huge problems: rents that crush pocketbooks, homeless encampments, my landlord not refunding my deposit even after the apartment was *spotless.* Myriad measures have been passed to address the crisis, and a huge bill is coming up for consideration this month.

– Rev. Andy Bales, the CEO of Union Rescue Mission, a central figure in the fight against homelessness in LA.

– Michael Manville, a UCLA professor of Urban Planning who is
– Adam Conover, creator and host of Adam Ruins Everything on truTV.
– Madison Shepard, seen on Comedy Central, FOX and Amazon – and a former apartment manager.
Hosted as always by Toby Muresianu of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle.
