About The Drew Carey Project
Ever wonder what gives the government the power to just take away your family's home?
Ever worry that the medicine that keeps you alive might be declared illegal by the Feds?
Ever think that the government doesn't always know best?
Join host Drew Carey and Reason for a series of video documentaries that take a hard look at the variety of threats to our liberties -- and celebrate what it really means to be free.
Tune in to Reason.tv for Drew's latest take on everything from medical marijuana to school choice, eminent domain, Big Government, and more. A new video will be released on or about the 1st and 15th of each month.
The people behind The Drew Carey Project include:
Drew Carey, Host
Comedian Drew Carey is host of CBS's "The Price is Right and Power of 10, and starred in the hit primetime TV series The Drew Carey Show and improv showcase Whose Line is it Anyway? A long-time libertarian and true Renaissance man, Drew is the author of the bestselling collection Dirty Jokes and Beer, an accomplished sports photographer, and a dedicated fan of soccer and all Cleveland sport teams. In his introduction to Reason's 2003 anthology Choice: the Best of Reason, Drew wrote, "We need a magazine like yours to help fight the stupid drug laws, the stupid immigration laws, and stupid big government in general. Free Minds and Free Markets! Right on, my man. Freedom!" He is a graduate of the Platypus Workshop, which helped inspire Reason.tv's Drew Carey Project.
Nick Gillespie, Editor-in-Chief, Reason.com and Reason.tv

Gillespie served as Reason magazine's editor in chief from 2000 to 2008. Under his direction, Reason won the 2005 Western Publications Association "Maggie" Award for Best Political Magazine.
