    Kevin Bleyer

    Emmy Award-Winning Writer, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

    Kevin Bleyer is a multiple Emmy Award-winning writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, after more than a decade writing and producing Dennis Miller and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Since 2008, he has worked on many of President Barack Obama's speeches, including the President's remarks at the 2010 and 2009 White House Correspondents Association dinners. Bleyer, the only member of the Council on Foreign Relations who has flown to Iraq on (what can only be described as) a high-level joke-finding mission, is also a frequent commentator for National Public Radio, a graduate of Stanford University, and the author of the Me The People:One Man's Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, which instantly became the #1 political humor e-book on Amazon.
