Comedians on Elections, Democracy, and More
Featuring Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel, Jesse McLaren, Phil Hanley, and Godfrey.
Happy November! Hello, I’m Geoff Plitt, and welcome to What You Need to Know, the brief, weekly newsletter where I share the best comedy videos I’ve seen all week. It will always be free, and you’re welcome to become a friend by following me on Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok, where I share my own jokes every day.
And now, the hahas you came for:
Bill Maher had an excellent final “New Rule” last Friday about the end of democracy that was both hilarious and disturbing. A must-watch:
Jimmy Kimmel had a fun sketch recently, written by the very funny Jesse McLaren which also had me cracking up:
Phil Hanley released a great special recently that you can watch for free. I loved it, he’s a great joke writer. Check it out:
Comedy Central just released this fun compilation video of several Godfrey bits, where he tackles trick-or-treating, Alabama football, and his feud with a bodega cat:
That’s all, folks! See ya next time.
