Satirical TV has become mandatory viewing for citizens wishing to make sense of the bizarre contemporary state of political life. Shifts in industry economics and audience tastes have re-made television comedy, once considered a wasteland of escapist humor, into what is arguably the most popular source of political critique. From fake news and pundit shows to animated sitcoms and mash-up videos, satire has become an important avenue for processing politics in informative and entertaining ways, and satire TV is now its own thriving, viable television genre. Satire TV examines what happens when comedy becomes political, and politics become funny. A series of original essays focus on a range of programs, from The Daily Show to South Park, Da Ali G Show to The Colbert Report, The Boondocks to Saturday Night Live, Lil’ Bush to Chappelle’s Show, along with Internet D.I.Y. satire and essays on British and Canadian satire. They all offer insights into what today’s class of satire tells us about the current state of politics, of television, of citizenship, all the while suggesting what satire adds to the political realm that news and documentaries cannot.

" Here is the ideal introduction to satire for the student and, for the experienced scholar, an occasion to reconsider the uses, problems, and pleasures of satire in light of contemporary theory. Satire is a staple of the literary classroom. Dustin Griffin moves away from the prevailing moral-didactic approach established thirty some years ago to a more open view and reintegrates the Menippean tradition with the tradition of formal verse satire. Exploring texts from Aristophanes to the moderns, with special emphasis on the eighteenth century, Griffin uses a dozen figures -- Horace, Juvenal, Persius, Lucian, More, Rabelais, Donne, Dryden, Pope, Swift, Blake, and Byron -- as primary examples. Because satire often operates as a mode or procedure rather than as a genre, Griffin offers not a comprehensive theory but a set of critical perspectives. Some of his topics are traditional in satire criticism: the role of satire as moralist, the nature of satiric rhetoric, the impact of satire on the political order. Others are new: the problems of satire and closure, the pleasure it affords readers and writers, and the socioeconomic status of the satirist. Griffin concludes that satire is problematic, open-ended, essayistic, and ambiguous in its relationship to history, uncertain in its political effect, resistant to formal closure, more inclined to ask questions than provide answers, and ambivalent about the pleasures it offers.

When Vivekanand Modi wins the general elections, the world turns upside down for She Who Shall Not Be Named. Fearing the loss of her political power, carefully nurtured over the years, she leaves no stone unturned to undermine the new government. The ever loyal echo-system thrusts a reluctant Amulya, the young heir to her vast political empire, to take the plunge into the buzzing beehive. The only problem is that, despite all the support from dead leaders to speaking machines, Amulya has the unerring knack of running away to secret lands… Meanwhile, the Jinn who was released from a magic lamp by Abdul Malik, decides to traverse the real, the social, and the magical worlds, twisting them all. “Hilariously incisive and thought-provoking. Bhavesh has a superlatively deep take on the system which couldn’t have been presented any funnier.” Ashwin S Kumar, ex-Columnist, The Unreal Times. “Sharp, edgy political satire, with more ‘Laugh Out Loud’ moments than a Rahul Gandhi rally.” Gappistan Radio, Former Editor, Faking News.

"From epigrams and name calling to sophisticated proverbs, fables and taunt-songs, Weisman provides a nuanced introduction to this multifaceted and fascinating subject. The author spends equal time looking at the historical (political) and literary (satirical) aspects of the subject, well aware that context matters and that sometimes "you have to be there" to get the joke. An excellent contribution to the emerging interest in biblical humor."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

In this completely revised and updated edition (including eight new chapters), Jeffrey Jones charts the evolution and maturation of political entertainment television by examining The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Politically Incorrect/Real Time with Bill Maher, and Michael Moore's TV Nation and The Awful Truth. This volume investigates how and why these shows have been central locations for the critique of political and economic power and an important resource for citizens during numerous political crises. In an age of Truthiness, fake news and humorous political talk have proven themselves viable forms of alternative reporting and critical means for ascertaining truth, and in the process, questioning the legitimacy of news media's role as the primary mediator of political life. The book also addresses the persistent claims that these programs have cynical effects and create misinformed young citizens, demonstrating instead how such programming provides for an informed, active, and meaningful citizenship. The new edition takes account of the many changes that have occurred in television and political culture since Entertaining Politics' initial release.

If politics is a serious matter and humour a funny one, this volume investigates how and why the boundaries between the two are blurred: politics can be represented in a humorous manner and humour can have a serious intent. It shows how political humour can be manipulated in public debates or become an integral part of postmodern art.
