POLITICAL COMEDY IN THE PRE-APOCALYPTIC WORLD

Saturday, July 28
1300 - 1400 (1:00 - 2:00 PM)

Location: Hyatt Regency - Grand Salon Opera, Level 4
Address: 1255 Rue Jeanne Mance, Montreal, QC, H5B 1E5

No doubt helped by a certain President of the United States, political satire is alive and thriving online, in late night television, and on stage. Taking sides means alienating the broadest potential audience, but comedians have never been afraid to stand up for what they believe is right. With a highly-engaged and hyper-aware audience, the socially-woke are taking solace in the court jesters who speak truth to power. Meet just a few of the fearless comics with strong opinions who find the funny in today’s world of instant news and deep political divide, against a neverending stream of scary headlines.
