Join writers from ClickHole, The Onion, "Late Night With Seth Meyers," and Sarah Silverman's "I Love America" for an illuminating and not at all sad discussion about why satire is still important even in an age where Twitter churns out a million jokes a second. How do you say something new when it seems like everyone is bashing Trump? Learn how to craft satire for both Internet and live TV audiences. Moderated by Charles Barkley (or equivalent).
