Birding can be a peaceful pastime, but it can also be a hoot.
Evan Cutler, a lifelong birder and volunteer at the Montclair Hawk Lookout, is always on the lookout for birds and the humorous situations that ensue when birders get together.
Cutler has spent years trying to meld his passion for birding with his day job as a producer at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. On Wednesday, February 13, at the Montclair Bird Club, Cutler will present some of his favorite bird-centric field packages from his five years at the Daily Show, including Steve Carell’s hilarious attempt to cover a 24-hour birding marathon known as the World Series of Birding.
When he’s not birding, Cutler is a veteran television producer whose credits include “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “Edgewise with John Hockenberry,” “Anderson Cooper 360,” “McEnroe,” “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” and “The Joy Behar Show,” as well as long-form documentaries for Netflix and the History Channel. He currently produces and writes the hit show “LIVE PD,” which can be seen every weekend on A & E.
Montclair Bird Club, Wednesday, Feburary 13, 7:30 p.m. at Union Congregational Church, 176 Cooper Ave., Montclair. Free and open to the public.
