Me, the Person
KEVIN BLEYER is a television writer, book writer, speechwriter, ghostwriter, playwriter, constitution rewriter, and wrong-righter.
A veteran of late night, for most of the last decade Bleyer was a writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He spent most of the previous decade as a writer and producer for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher and Dennis Miller. In episodic television, he was a staff writer for FOX's Sleepy Hollow and Bravo's Significant Others, and created and executive produced pilots for Comedy Central and Showtime.
Bleyer is the bestselling author of Me the People: One Man's Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Earth (The Book), and the co-author, with Gov. Bill Richardson, of How to Sweet-Talk a Shark.
As a speechwriter, Bleyer contributed to many of the (funnier) speeches of President Barack Obama. He has written for NASA astronauts, sitting senators, foreign diplomats, US Ambassadors, and even served for a time as the Deputy Chief Speechwriter for the Mayor of New York City.
He was a writer and producer for NBC News' Today Show and MSNBC's Ronan Farrow Daily, and he wrote and produced a pilot for CNN starring Kal Penn. His weekly column in The Daily Beast appeared between 2013-2016, and he wrote a recurring column for Foreign Policy during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
He is the co-founder of Pilot Media Initiatives, which helps launch political satire television shows in democratically-challenged countries.
In 2008, Bleyer became a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Truman National Security Fellow. In 2014, he was a Fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.
He has received four Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, a Writers Guild of America Award, and was an Audie Award finalist for narrating the audiobook of Me the People.
