Laughing Liberally plays Town Hall on Saturday night, taking our political comedy project of laughter from the left to a whole new scale.
This has been cause for some attention, from a Reuters piece picked up by Drudge to radio bits on WNYC and Joey Reynolds. But my favorite description has to be from flavorpill.com:
"Sort of like a live, standup version of The Daily Show, Laughing Liberally plays to Americans' bizarre fascination with ridiculing, but not actually participating in, politics."
Of course, our view is that smart comedy can be an entertaining and effective vehicle to communicate liberal values...which is participating in politics. At least, that's the end goal.
In the meantime, I just enjoy the phrase "bizarre fascination"...and any comparison to The Daily Show is welcome.
