Election season might be over, but that doesn't mean Comedy Congress is too. From the Petraeus love pentagon to fiscal cliff worries, join Patt Morrison and her guests to laugh at the madness of it all—the truth hurts far less when it's told by comedians. The comedic material emanating from Washington D.C., and state capitols across the country, is enough to make any sitcom writer jealous, even if most of that comedy is unintentional. Our motto on Comedy Congress is that just when politics makes you want to cry, it's usually best to laugh.

Guests:

Ben Gleib, roundtable regular on Chelsea Lately, host of the podcast "Last Week on Earth"

Evan Sayet, stand-up comedian, creator of "Right to Laugh"

Jeff Cesario, actor, comedian and Emmy award-winning writer, who has written for Dennis Miller Live, The Larry Sanders Show and Brand X with Russell Brand
