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.”
