As excitement surrounding the release of the major motion picture The Hunger Games reaches a fever pitch, The Harvard Lampoon visits The Harvard Coop on Tuesday, March 20th at 7:00pm to speak and sign their New York Times bestseller THE HUNGER PAINS, a hilarious send-up of the immensely popular dystopian young adult novel.

When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games—the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover—she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.

Starring Rachel Bloom (Kantkiss Neverclean), Katie Amanda Keane (as Effu Poorpeople), Thomas Lennon (Buttitch Totalapathy), Robert Ben Garant (as Seneca Crane’s beard), Mindy Sterling (Kantkiss’s Mom), Cedric Yarbrough (Cinnabon), Todd Fasen (Pita Malarkey), and Alex Berg (Smash).

Directed by David Lincoln.
