Trump Around the World of Comedy

Recording: Trump Around the World of Comedy, Mar 11, 2019

No American President in history was as mocked and ridiculed as much as Donald Trump is. This panel featuring Kirker Butler (Family Guy) and Jena Friedman (American Cunt) will try to find out why and will ask if comedians have any influence at all, or we are making jokes while the politicians have the last laugh?

We will begin by showing examples of Trump impersonators from around the world (Australia, Israel, China, and Ethiopia) and try to see what was emphasized in each country and what does it say about how the people of this country portray the USA? After this brief satire overview, a panel of top comedy writers from all around the world will try to stay serious while making fun of the leader of the free world.
