Tom Tomorrow, the pen name of US cartoonist Dan Perkins, will be in conversation with Deirdre O’Kane about all aspects of the political cartoon.

His weekly political cartoon, This Modern World appears in almost 80 newspapers across the US and on sites such as Daily Kos, Truthout, The Nation and The Nib. His work has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Esquire, The Economist and many others.

In 2013, Dan won the prestigious Herblock Award and in 2015 was a Pulitzer finalist. In 2009, he also worked closely with Pearl Jam to design the cover of their album 'Backspacer'.

Chair: Deirdre O’Kane, Actress, Comedian and TV Presenter.

‘In cartoons and in improv, anything can happen. You can be any character you want. The rules of real life don’t always apply.’
