If political humor, albeit unintentional, is your shtick, there was plenty of that: my own favorite was Rep. Jackie Speier – from where else but California? – likening Vladimir Putin to a tarantula spider who has “ensnared in his web” a whole list of Trump supporters, including Wilbur Ross, the Commerce ...

The Capitol Steps will be the stars of the night at the Cap Center on Friday. As the calendar flips from March to April, we have a whopping six stage shows on the slate this week, spanning the realms of Shakespeare to political satire likely written in the past couple weeks. And, as usual, there's plenty of live ...
One would think it difficult, if not impossible, to craft a comedy around Joseph Stalin, the man responsible for more deaths than Hitler, the megalomaniac who caused an entire nation to quake with terror for decades. But by focusing on the bickering of the sycophants surrounding him, as the Great Terror ...
As David Sims in the Atlantic noted, the political humor especially has felt forced, overused, and ineffectual, as the outlandish reality of American politics routinely upstages the humor meant to satirize it. The show's signature impression, Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump, is wearing out its welcome, and the ...

Senator Elizabeth Warren (left) sings with Boston City Councilor Michael Flaherty and Congressman Stephen F. Lynch as Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito and Mayor Marty Walsh clap along during the annual St. Patrick's Day Breakfast at the Ironworkers Local 7 Union Hall. By Jeremy C.
Specializing in political humor for folks who don't like politics, Durst's rollicking feast of outraged and outrageous satire is a comedic exploration of how America is changing in the Trump era, his solo show will continue his extended run in San Francisco now through May 29 with performances 8:00pm ...
Anyone who is a fan of his TV shows The Thick of It (UK) and Veep (US), as well as his film In The Loop, knows the brilliance of Armando Iannucci's scathing political humor. His characters are all either clueless buffoons or childish narcissists, and seeing them interact in the halls of power is hilarious, ...
The Academy Awards have a history of getting political. This year's, though, was a different beast, with the Trump administration and #MeToo looming large over the entire industry. Host Jimmy Kimmel began the ceremony by leaning into the political humor, taking jabs at the White House with his opening ...

Political humor is often self-deprecating, and Trump tried his hand in this unfamiliar territory. “My staff was concerned heading into this dinner that I couldn't do self-deprecating humor. They were worried about it. They said, 'Can you do it?' And I told them not to worry. Nobody does self-deprecating humor ...
Last year, Kimmel touched on political humor, making a few jabs at Trump, as when he joked about thanking the president: "Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? That's gone, thanks to him." For the most part, Kimmel tried to keep the mood light, though the already overlong show ...

Angling more toward fierce political humor as the years passed, Mr. Crimmins took his cues for satire from Mark Twain and counted among his fans Howard Zinn. Mr. Crimmins also was an outspoken crusader against the spread of online child pornography. He wrote about having been raped when he was ...
... last year's envelope fiasco (aka, The PwC Brain Fart Heard 'Round the World), it still promises to be a pretty eventful night, if only because it's one of the only Oscars in recent memory with no clear frontrunner for Best Picture (and because there's bound to be some, err, particularly pointed political humor).
Not everyone can take a tragic political bloodbath out of history and transform it into one of the finest (and funniest) comedies of the year. Not everyone is Armando Iannucci. Beloved by some (mostly British) and tragically lacking name recognition from most, Iannucci is quietly one of the most important ...
I don't intend this as a political statement. I am sharing this story simply because it gave me a great laugh and I hope it will do the same for you. Whether you are Democrat, Republican, Independent or some other political flavor, if you can't laugh over this, I think you should lighten up a bit. You'll see the ...
