After a successful inauguration London’s newest comedy night, Erich McElroy’s Imperfect Guide to the US Presidential Debates has announced its second event - an afternoon of comedy and an unpicking of the Democrat Party clash between Hillary Clinton, socialist grandpa Bernie Sanders and that other guy (Martin O’Malley).
Among the line up, hosted by UK-based American comedian Erich McElroy, will be former MP Lembit Opik, waspish and sharp American David Mills and prolific comedy writer and performer from The Comedy Store Live on Comedy Central, Ola.
“After last time we realized that maybe staying up until 4am was too much to ask of any political comedy obsessive” says McElroy, “so this will time we are doing it as a relaxed Sunday replay affair. If you can resist reading the US headlines on Saturday morning it will still be fun to watch and see if Bernie had a bad hair night or if Martin O’Malley’s voice finally breaks. Once again all eyes will be on Hillary Clinton. She had a good first debate, but the big question will be, ‘Can she improve the amount of time it takes her to have a wee?’ Join us on Sunday and we will take you through every detail of every follicle and vocal chord movement.”
Highlights of the first event, during which assembled wonks furiously tweeted funnies, included the Republican candidates talking about the Federal Reserve at 1.30am - always rock n’ roll. Other fun times came when Ted Cruz nearly won the debate by attacking the evil that is the media - just for being there, and when Governor Kasich ruined his chances to be President by reminding Republicans he has successfully worked in government before.
The race to be the next leader of ‘the free world’ is the greatest show on Earth - therefore Erich McElroy’s Imperfect Guide to the US Presidential Debates is the second greatest.
So be there or be slightly less great.
