Evin Donohoe: Game Changer! - 2341

Evin Donohoe
Apr 15th 2013 | Anthony Collebrusco
Evin Donohoe has been to the other side and lived to tell the tale… of life as a volunteer for the 2012 Barack Obama campaign.

Armed with a PowerPoint presentation, Donohoe leads the audience on a whirlwind tour of American political culture from a who's who in American politics to an explanation of the Electoral College (impressively done in less than a minute) to the psychology undergirding America's obsession with guns. It's a fascinating, ethnographic undertaking that also happens to be very funny. Donohoe's attention to the many quirks of the American system, from its citizens to its leaders, is perceptive and good-humoured, a refreshing approach to a subject that tends to inspire cynicism. This is not to say that Donohoe is not critical; rather, beneath his critiques is a genuine concern for politics in America, undoubtedly a product of his shared Australian and American heritage. His strongest material, such as the discussion of guns in America, reflects this balance.

Whether you know a little or a lot about American politics, Donohoe's “Game Changer” delivers on laughs and insight.
