Comedy Congress, hosted by Patt Morrison

Wednesday, July 6, 2011, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Crawford Family Forum 474 South Raymond Avenue Pasadena, CA 91105 Map and directions

Live from the Crawford Family Forum! Come on Washington, quit making it so easy. We in the world of satire like a challenge; we enjoy making fun of the subtle ironies in politics, digging out the points of ridicule amidst the complicated political policies. And what do you offer up instead: Weiner jokes?? You make it too easy Washington, we thought better of you. Sure, there are enough Republican presidential candidates to make up a March Madness bracket, those guys (and ladies) are always easy to make fun of; President Obama making jokes about the failure of his stimulus program—not quite shovel ready, eh Mr. President—has a cruel irony that’s fun to lambast. Complimentary refreshments were provided by Heirloom L.A., Silverlake Wine and Craftsman Brewing Company. To listen to the audio, check out the Patt Morrison Website.
