An Alternative to Trump-Bashing Comedy?

USA TODAY recently hailed nine TV comedians who specialize in mocking President Trump. Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Bill Maher, Samantha Bee, Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and Michelle Wolf all identify as outspoken liberals, but that doesn’t mean 100% of the late-night TV audience wants to see Trump reamed every night. Alternative programming from conservative comedians could earn great success by capturing just 10% of the late-night comedy audience, the same way Fox News wins ratings wars by offering an alternative to left-leaning networks.

The purpose shouldn’t be to defend Trump–he can fend for himself and defense isn’t funny. Instead, a conservative comedy show could go after laughable libs like Pelosi and Schumer, Bernie and Hillary, while mocking politically correct comics and their predictable mockery of Trump.

If a network embraced this obvious opportunity, they could laugh all the way to the bank.

    You guys already have Steven Crowder, the Canadian who hates his country of birth and like to play dress up as women to… make fun of the left?

    Sure Steven. It was just to mess with Ana from tyt.

    As for the general issue of having more conservative comedians and conservatives in entertainment. Guys, drop it. The primary reason you find more liberals in creative fields, is that as a group, they are just better at it than you are. I've mentioned this before, but look at the movies conservatives were behind in recent times. Must be at least a dozen with religious themes. Where are the fantasy epics created by conservatives? Directed? Acted? Maybe the narnia series, but one of the actors was an outright atheist.

    I say this with love conservatives, you don't create culture worth sh*t. You can barely do anything but look to tradition and the past, but something new? you are the LAST group of people looking to dive into that like more liberally minded people. What is new is bad or untested, why bother, right? And that is why you have fewer comedians, fewer actors, fewer writers, directors, producers, etc etc.

    Don't blame us for your deficiencies. And if it makes you feel better, you all probably make much better drill sergeants, task masters, prison guards, pain givers, dentists, law enforcement officers, OBEY !!!!!!!! OBEY THE LAW !!!!!!!

    And like the typical obedient little supplicant personalities conservatives have, they obey, or feel the need to dictate terms to others. So you have plenty of areas where you perform better than liberals. Don't get mad that what we're better at is more fun and inspiring.

      Name one damn creative thing you have made in the last 10 years?
      Seriously, how many times can you remake Robin Hood, Batman and shitty Star Wars flicks.
      You haven't had an original idea since Y2K.

    “Prison guards, police officers” I’m not sure those corrupt, collective bargaining unionistas are conservatives. Possibly statist fascists or bolshies.
    The only good thing about Ty is that he’s just as stupid and deceitful as Rizzo. Who wouldnt want to eat popcorn and watch an insane religious nut liar take on a deranged commie propagandist?

  3. Rizzo  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 11:56 am

    Speaking of "statist fascists or bolshies", how are your boys at OECD?

    Maybe they can tell us how to save the world through the utilization of carbon credits.

    A conservative comedy! Think of all the material Chuck, Nancy, Maxine, Patty and many more would leave on a daily basis for the shows writers to use.

    • Rizzo  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 3:03 pm

      It practically writes itself!

  5. Armand  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 5:18 pm

    You’re jus upset because years of their testing shows your beloved Israel to be exactly what I said it was; poorly educated and below average intellectually. You’re just upset you can’t find any data to support your position expect ad hominem attacks(the last ditch effort of the stupid and wrong). find data that proves me wrong(you haven’t yet)
    Israel is exactly as I said, intellectually below average. You sound like American blacks upset they can’t score well on the ACT….it’s the “establishment”

  6. Rizzo  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Mad? How could I be mad at a low-IQ guy, touting his Wonderlic score…. The term, “Inferiority Complex” comes to mind.
    Probably very common among the low-IQ community.

  7. Rizzo  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    Serious question Adolf… at what age did you realize you were a Jew-hating, anti-semite?

  8. Rizzo  •  Jul 20, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Low-IQ Adolf, definitely has a touch of Napoleon-syndrome.
    I bet Adolf stands a menacing 5’6”!

  9. Armand  •  Jul 21, 2018 at 8:49 am

    Touting a wonderlic score is a statement of objective measurement.
    Your comments are libelous, inaccurate and unsubstantiated.
    You’re simply upset that you’ve been proven wrong and have on many occasions stated objectively wrong information. Again, your false witness baring is a violation of the Abrahamic religious commandments you claim “liberals” dont adhere to.
    Regarding Judaism, there’s absolutely no reason whatsoever to like Jews, Catholics, Mormons, muslims. They’re horribly disgusting people. Judaism clearly calls for genocide, child genital mutuliation, theft and the worship of a real estate broker as creator of the universe. If you like Jews or any other Abrahamic tradition follower you’re not literate(we know from your inability to read THE ECONOMIST, that you qualify as barely literate). Like most intelligent people, I’ve hated Judaism since I could read it’s “holy books”

      Touting your wonderlic score is a statement of libelous, inaccurate and unsubstantiated claims.

      It’s also a symptom of a bad case of Napoleon Complex.

      Just in case you didn’t know: “Napoleon complex" is a theorised complex occurring in people of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behaviour, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subject's stature. The term is also used more generally to describe people who are driven by a perceived handicap to overcompensate in other aspects of their lives.

      BINGO!

    Michael uses the term “left-leaning networks” all the time so as to encourage Republicans it seems, to can’t-we-just-get-along with the Leftists across the aisle, start a conversation, compromise, have a few good chuckles with each other and then do what the Leftists want which is followed by sad faced explanations by the GOP that they HAD to pass the legislation or the Dems would shut govt. down for a day and blame the GOP. This behavior NEVER ends. Trump is on an island by himself but he defeats the GOP cowards and the most disgusting/violent political party in our country’s history. The MSM calls for the overthrow of the government on daily basis and Michael talks about stand up comedy.

  11. Armand  •  Jul 21, 2018 at 10:29 am

    Like “rizzo,” Michael Medved is an establishment operative to “control debate and control opposition”
    Michael Medveds father worked for Ames research, nasa, and the cia. Medveds bother runs a rip off 2 & 20 hedge fund from Jerusalem.
    Medved was an active campaign finance bag man for the Democrats for years. Michael medved supported TARP and QE. Michael medved is a bankster, religious huckster statist neo-con democrat/repub-club

    • Rizzo  •  Jul 21, 2018 at 11:04 am

      Adolf is a low-IQ, hate-monger. He lacks knowledge, facts and reason. He supports pathetically non-consequential, corrupt, money-laundering, Nazi-sympathizers, like Switzerland.

      He is a longtime sufferer of Napoleon Complex and he spouts-off here, because he has been shunned by society.
      And, I am sure, he has gotten his ass whooped more than a time or two.

  12. Rizzo  •  Jul 21, 2018 at 11:11 am

    Isn’t it funny, how the EXTREME left, like Ty, and the EXTREME right, like Adolf, always find common-ground in their hatred of Jews, Israel, religion, and God.

    Perhaps Ty and Adolf can join forces… wouldn’t that be a Dynamic Duo?

    • Jim Bird  •  Jul 22, 2018 at 11:05 am

      Yes, Dumb and Dumber.

  13. Rizzo  •  Jul 22, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    Alternative Comedy?

    How about Adolph’s Half-Hour Comedy Hour?

    He has provided enough material here, for a pilot on The Nazi-Network.
    He can invite the musical-stylings of Wonderlic and the Flaming IQ Boy Band!

    • Jim Bird  •  Jul 26, 2018 at 10:29 pm

      Oh Rizzo!! Lmao!!!

      I’m going to register as a libtard from now on and let George Soros pay me to crash conservative columns like this one. I don’t have a double digit IQ like Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I could be ”MensaMan”and get paid triple what these 7th graders make!

  14. Armand  •  Jul 23, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Rizzo, yu
    Were calling me a socialist, now I’m an extreme right wInger; which is it me illiterate moron who can’t read PISA results, Lincoln speeches or the economist.
    What’s hard to understand is why anyone would like religion, Jews or the bullshit of middle easter bible. Low IQ sandpeople who mutiliate their children’s junk, in imperial Russia the rabbis would travel around cutting off children’s index fingers.
    there’s no reason to like the Abrahamic religious people as they’re hucksters who commit fraud and lie(just like Rizzo)

    Conservatives just aren't funny, Fox news tried a comedy show to compete with Jon Stewart and it lasted one night. Ex Sen Huckabee is so unfunny he doesn't even realize the extent to which he embarrasses himself. Comedy is much more than joke-telling, which I don't think Conservatives understand. Court Jesters in the middle ages didn't just do headstands, they told truth to power. If you strip away the anguish of watching our country in free-fall, Trump is actually a very funny man. He looks funny, he acts like an idiot, and he tweets things that are just begging for ridicule. People who understand what comedy is really about understand that.
