Comedy Congress Live

Is it just us, or is election season getting longer every year? The extra heavy politicking seems to have ushered in a wave of amnesia currently sweeping the Republican presidential candidates, from Rick Perry's infamous "oops" brain lapse to Herman Cain's buffering on Libya. Meanwhile, the deficit-reduction super committee flirts with a super impasse and abysmally low poll numbers. And just as we thought Occupying wasn't in style...Comedy Congress is here to digest it all and take an unapologetic look at current events. Featured "congressmen": Greg Proops, Alonzo Bodden and Ben Gleib. Be sure to tune into the re-broadcast on 89.3 KPCC on Friday, December 16, 2011 at 1:40pm or checkout the Patt Morrison Webpage. Music was provided by DJ Steve Martin (KPFK's My Side of The City, Culdesac Kids Records). Refreshments were provided by Heirloom LA, Silverlake Wine and Eagle Rock Brewery.
