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.

Hosted by  KPCC's Patt Morrison .

Guests:

Paula Poundstone,  standup comic and author. She is a regular panelist on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me".

Jimmy Dore , the star of several Comedy Central specials, a writer performer for the Off-Broadway hit “The Marijuana-Logues”, and the host of his own weekly radio show in Los Angeles.

Wayne Federman, actor, writer, and comedian. He is noted for his numerous stand-up comedy appearances in clubs, theaters, and on television; his biography of "Pistol" Pete Maravich; and his supporting comedic acting roles in  The X-Files Curb Your Enthusiasm , and  The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
