CointelshowA Patriot Act

Mondo Bizzaro / New Orleans, USA

“Bogad’s hilarious satire teaches us about the gruesome details of COINTELPRO, and connects them to our post-9/11 security state, without preaching, spoon-feeding, or boring the audience.”

— Jason Grote, Writer

Welcome to the history of Americans spying on Americans

Cointelshow: A Patriot Act is a political satire about an FBI counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) through which the organization sabotaged, disrupted, and repressed domestic groups like the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement and individuals like Dr. Martin Luther King and Fred Hampton. Using actual COINTELPRO artifacts and transcripts, creator/performer L.M. Bogard takes audiences behind the curtain of heavily-censored documents into the secrets that the U.S. government holds over its own people.

Join Special Agent Christian White on a cheerfully creepy, and often grimly funny, tour of the FBI’s notorious Counterintelligence Program.
