Throughout history, "great men" have written some of our most important works — histories, novels, poems, plays — but are they really all that great? Drunk Education (the event formerly known as Drunk TED Talks) returns to poke holes and deflate the egos of even more writer men. Some roasts will be loving, some will be scathing, but no one will escape untouched. This time, Cady Drell takes on Philip Roth, Caroline Framke blasts Ted Hughes, Elon Green accurately describes shitbag Rod Dreher, and Estelle Tang roasts George R. R. Martin.
