Comedy Nation is a live stage show, combining the best elements of stand-up comedy and a spontaneous, stimulating talk show.
FORMAT OF SHOW:
Each show has a theme/topic. Host John Fugelsang (America’s Funniest Videos, Current TV), along with his guests - predominantly comedians; but also bloggers, pundits, experts, authors, journalists and politicians - deliver a 3-5 minute monologue on the evening’s topic. The monologue segment of the show is then followed by a non-scripted panel discussion among the performers, moderated by John.
More about Comedy Nation:
Comedy Nation has been developed and performed for the past 15 years in Los Angeles as “The Free Speech Show” hosted by Bill Bronner. Comedy Nation keeps the audience engaged while stimulating them and the performers with new ideas, stories and points of view on topics and themes that are chosen to challenge everyone intellectually, as well provide laughter, frank talk and spontaneously hilarious moments.
The intent is to use comedy as a tool to get past argumentative partisanship and provide an entertaining discussion of the cultural, social and political issues of the day.
