Conservative comedy

Are conservatives as funny as liberals? We’re about to find out.

A new comedy and entertainment channel is scheduled to launch this summer, NPR reports today. It is being promoted as having “pro-America, pro-business and pro-military sensibilities.” There’s probably a smarmy joke there about three people who walk into a bar, but I’ll be darned if I can come with it.

Executives for RightNetwork say the network will fill a gap caused by most comedy efforts on TV being dominated by “left wing comedians.”

    I wonder if they will bring back “Win Ben Stein’s Money?”

  • Steve M.

    Nah, that sounds like redistribution of wealth.

  • Minn whaler

    And this is for real? WOW.. right nothing

    sorry totally spells if not right wing = wrong and humor or not… i still yearn for intelligent conversation, non-party politics, honest discussion, etc. ohh gee, seems like I am repeating myself. Then again that little video did the same thing.

    Please, could someone just step up to the plate and say “Can we talk?” and no I do not mean Joan Rivers.. I mean can we actually talk? work it out? find a “happy mdium”? I am sick to death of “Bi-Polar politics”.

    I thought conservatives already had a comedy channel. Fox News.

    A Studebaker Lark stationwagon and a very cool song. Well, at least their marketing dept has taste. Unfortunately, righty humor is largely innuendo and subtlety free, and therefore funny only to their target audience.

  • Mark Gisleson

    A patriot, a CEO and a defense contractor walk into a bar fresh from a Tea Party protest against higher taxes.

    Who’s buying? the bartender asks.

    “He is” the three scoundrels reply, pointing to the taxpayer at the other end of the bar.

    No, I don’t think this will be a very funny network.
