Official Home Of Dystopia Tonight with John Poveromo


It’s a simple equation. If you take a well traveled stand-up comedian who loves to interact with his audience, put him in solitary confinement and shake well, he *must* find a way to reach that audience. Even if it means digging a tunnel, Shawshank style, out of his house through the internet to connect virtually with interesting people. Which is exactly what John Poveromo has done. Dystopia Tonight is John’s way of bringing social back to media.

Born out of what seemed like a never ending lockdown in the middle of an ongoing global pandemic, Dystopia Tonight became a playground for John to introduce his favorite comedians, authors, scientists, politicians, actors, musicians, cartoonists, and TikTokers to his audience. Using Twitch to do it live gives John and his guests the ability to reach an audience from around the world. Along with his producer Tom Banis, John has interviewed, Mike Farrell, Tommy Chong, Ed Asner, Ed Begley Jr, Paris Sashay, Art Alexakis, Peter Asher, Lewis Black, Ernie Hudson, Chuck Nice, Dr. Susanna Harris, John Romita Jr., Marsha Warfield, Alonzo Bodden, Tom Papa, Jim Vallely, Megan Cavanagh, Gary Numan, and more!

In short, John Poveromo’s Dystopia Tonight is an intellectual melting pot of which every guest so far has dived into fully. The reason being? At the moment the world appears to be a rave with no corners to have a conversation and seemingly no one left to listen. Because of this we have all learned that being connected by sharing stories and ideas is not only entertaining but vital to our own well being. So get cozy, grab a snack and a friend, double click the link and enjoy!
