New York Comedians Detail The Surprising Pitfalls of Covering Trump

You already know comedians who do Trump jokes hate political correctness, but they also don’t want to hear “clapter,” hate liberal infighting, and find “pat on the back” liberals to be annoying.

Anthony Atamanuik, Dulcé Sloan, Judy Gold, Jordan Carlos, and Aparna Nancherla get together at the Comic Strip in New York City to talk about the hazards of doing comedy, and Trump based comedy in particular, in the age of Trump. The segment aired on Friday January 12th on HBO’s VICE News Tonight and now you can watch it here.

The comedians talked about their struggle in dealing with the absurdity of his administration in their act, what the boundaries are for doing Trump impressions, how audiences typically react to the jokes, and how they plan to navigate the next few years.
