live talks LAWhat do Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (NBA’s all-time leading scorer),  Michael Ovitz (former president of The Walt Disney Company ) and Bryan Cranston (four time Emmy Award winner for outstanding lead actor) have in common? Well, you can go see all of these powerhouse people share their stories on stage, presented by Live Talks LA.

Live Talks LA hosts an impressive series of on-stage conversations featuring writers, actors, musicians, humorists, artists, chefs, scientists and business thought leaders. Founder and producer, Ted Habte-Gabr enjoys pairing up thought-provoking people to engage in conversation, for example – Tina Fey and Steve Martin, or Glee‘s Jane Lynch with Parks and Recreation star Adam Scott. Habte-Gabr preps his guests by telling them, “think of it as a conversation with three or four hundred people eavesdropping on it”.
