See your favourite comedians and satirical commentators do their best to make nonsense of the American political campaigns with The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday – Election Specials and Comedy Central Roast: Roseanne Barr – all on The Comedy Channel.
This Friday, October 19 at 7pm, see President Obama’s most convincing interview yet when he joins Jon at the desk on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart airing only hours after the US broadcast. Led by Time magazine’s “Best Talk Show Host” Jon Stewart, the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart skewers the day’s breaking news, investigates the people, places and events that make news, or rants and raves on politics, weeknights at 7pm on The Comedy Channel express from the US.
Hosted by Stephen Colbert, the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning The Colbert Report features the important hot topics where the daily news is treated with absolutely no seriousness whatsoever. Stephen Colbert is preaching his version of the truth while also picking fights and winning one-sided arguments with the biggest names around, weeknights at 7.30pm on The Comedy Channel express from the US.
The Comedy Channel is airing two Saturday Night Live election specials, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday, where neither Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama are spared the satire. These half-hour specials will be broadcast exclusively on Thursdays, October 25 and November 1 at 8pm, delivering their sardonic and always entertaining views on American politics.
If you’re sickened by the idea of Mitt running the States, or bored of Barack-fever, then you should be thankful to know another name has popped up on the 2012 ballot – Roseanne Barr. The famous comedian is running for president this year as nominated by the Peace and Freedom Party in America.
Whether Roseanne makes it to The White House or stays in her regular house, check out the hilarious Comedy Central Roast: Roseanne Barr airing exclusively on The Comedy Channel Friday, November 9 at 8.30pm. This scorching spectacle sees Roast Master Jane Lynch and a crew of edgy comedians and legendary actors including Katey Sagal, Carrie Fisher, Ellen Barkin, Seth Green, Wayne Brady, Anthony Jeselnik, Jeffrey Ross, Amy Schumer and Gilbert Gottfried on the dais. From sex and drugs to career failures, no subject is off limits, and along with a special appearance by Roseanne’s ex-husband, Tom Arnold, each guest takes to the stage to roast an American legend and icon: Rosanne Barr – no-one goes unscathed
