Comedy Nation: Patriotism vs. Party: Are They All Drunk on Power?
In 2016, PBS aired John Fugelsang's excellent road-trip documentary Dream On, which followed Fugelsang as he traveled through 17 states to retrace the 1831 journey of Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the book Democracy in America, and find out if the American dream is still accessible to working-class people. Since 2013, the New York–based comedian and SiriusXM host (he's also been a host on VH1 and of America's Funniest Home Videos), has applied that same political sensibility when emceeing Comedy Nation, a stand-up show where fellow comics crack wise about such topics as sex, sexism, gambling and legalizing drugs, followed by a panel discussion. Tonight's lineup for Comedy Nation: Patriotism vs. Party: Are They All Drunk on Power?, features Dulcé Sloan, Rick Overton, Felicia Michaels, Tamer Kattan, Bill Dixon and Robin Tran.
