1996: The Daily Show launches

Damn! Time flies too quickly at my age. I’m glad this outlasted South Park and probably will. It wasn’t necessarily Comedy Central’s first attempt at current events-based comedy. Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect didn’t survive ABC’s cowardice and Maher’s love of his own … Continue reading

Sorry to Bother You

On the surface, Sorry appears to be a standard comedy about how working-class people are getting screwed out of their homes in the San Francisco/Oakland area. Instead I was pleasantly surprised to discover how Sorry is a cousin of Idiocracy. How so? It seems in … Continue reading

RIP Mort Drucker

Mort Drucker was a legendary artist. As Michael J. Fox once said, if you’re mocked in MAD by him, you’ve arrived. He was the TV/Film equivalent of Weird Al even though Mort was around first. He had an incredible style combining … Continue reading
