    He's an absolute master at what he does and truly committed to his craft. Gotta respect the hustle.

    Except that's not the case. Comedy has always been, and to this day is defined by mostly liberals.

    Do you go to comedy shows often?

    I honestly didn't find Borat funny, and really didn't find Bruno funny.
    I did like Ali G, although towards the end it was played out.
    I think Borat being a FOB stereotype and Bruno being a gay stereotype just weren't funny to me (I found Bruno just embarrassing to watch), although Ali G as the suburban middle class white kid that thinks he's a black gangster was on point.

    ...and yeah, Palin is low hanging fruit.

    I wouldn't dispute that comedy, along with the rest of the entertainment industry, is run by liberals. What I'm suggesting is that if they want to make people laugh, and actually make jokes that are funny, the writers should consider looking at the Left for source material. This has been done successfully in the past. South Park is a great example – the closet Republican creators were never shy about mocking annoying liberal behavior, and they were pretty well-balanced between lampooning the Left and Right. But for some reason nobody thinks Jimmy Kimmel is funny; not even liberals. There's a reason all these Trump jokes keep falling flat.

    I only go to standup comedy shows like once a year. They're not as funny these days, now that everyone's afraid to offend...

    I mean you're right about Kimmel not being that funny. But the reason isn't because the source material isn't funny.. it's because it's just too obvious.

    Just think about it for a second. A well known serial conman, tax/draft dodger and former Hillary supporter has convinced the supposedly fiscally responsible, christian republican party that he, despite his multiple bankruptcies, outsourced sweatshop labour and affairs, is somehow the only true republican, where everyone who doesn't support his is some kind of RINO.

    It's funny cos Trump is funny in a morbid way; a symptom of intellectual bankruptcy, but not the cause.

    "because I assume people I don't like are close-minded dumb fucks like the people I do like, I cannot see how it is possible to praise someone when they are correct and criticize them when they are wrong."

    I feel like you should join a comedy-discussion forum so they can experience what we experience when you share your ideas about politics.

    the craziest part about this whole con is that he's the best president we've had in a long time. Ironic.

    I understand you feel that way, but about half the country doesn't even share your basic view about Trump, regardless of whether it's suitable source material. I blame the writers, because they really ought to know better.

    Your "We" is pretty small Joe. Not everyone agrees with you.

    Does Cohen rely on deceitful editing for his gags? I hope not.

    2008.

    Obama has a rough road to win the election. White voters won't support him.

    Not to my knowledge, he sells it with earnestness I think. I think that's what makes it so brilliant.

    I just found it hilarious that only "leftoids" would like SBC for being deceptive when the mirror is glaring right at them with the causes they choose to take up. It's just an amazing lack of self awareness.

    Borat, The Dictator and Ali G are all hilarious. Ali G is probably a bit more british humor though.. He also voices King Julian. What´s not to love?

    Jokes about Trump? Like an Ali G interview?


    Amusingly, Trump actually catches on and leaves. Alot of people dont.
