Pulitzer Surprises
Pulitzer Surprises
According to the Pulitzer website, anyone can nominate anything for a Pulitzer Prize, and Pulitzer Surprises takes advantage of that horrible idea. Eliza Cossio (The Daily Show) and Caroline Schaper (Full Frontal, Letterman) have their favorite comedians perform their submission for a Pulitzer. Then they interview a real-life Pulitzer Prize winner who has actually done something good. At the end of the show the audience will cast their vote on who deserves a Pulitzer, and then it will really be submitted for a Pulitzer Prize. That winner walks away a “Pulitzer Prize Entrant.”
