Cartoon of the day is a funny take on the March Madness from Cartoonist Pat Byrnes for the New Yorker mag
Cartoon(s) of the day is three recent takes from Cartoonist Bill Day & how in a President Trump’s world his New friends TV friends and ugly friends all collide for laughs
Fox 5 News talked to two New York Comedians on maneuvering laughs under a President Trump — saying it’s always best to find the absurdity in things and remember you have a voice to speak out.
Comedian Nick Naney has been dealing with the tense political climate the best way he knows how: through a good laugh.
Nick’s newest material revolves around Trump and the clear divide that currently exists in our country & he writes to an audience he describes as young and liberal.
“Comedy is better than drugs,” offers Comedian Jena Friedman. “It’s also disarming, you can coat ideas in Comedy and get people to eat them. ”

It’s all about how he approaches the days news – like my personal must-watch: A Closer Look – a segment that runs six to eleven minutes and uses a combination of punchy humor and bite-sized-clarity to cut through a lot of the 24-hour-news culture.
New York Magazine recently did a cover story on Late Night that looked at the creation of A Closer Look: The secret weapon is that first draft gets written from former cable news writer Sal Gentile. ‘It’s then punched up by Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, Alex Baze, and Jenny Hagel — all seasoned comedy writers who know how to wring a joke out of anything from constitutional law to an outright catastrophe.’
The writers said, “we are making no effort to hide where we stand on issues. Comedy is best with a point of view and it would be silly to spend all that time talking about something we care about while leaving out what we think about it.”
