Comedy has a way of allowing the audience to expel their anxieties about the world around them via laughter.
I was excited to see this comedy show because politics has always been rife for comedic satire and Quinn, having been on SNL, is a master of political satire. Unfortunately, my expectations did not meet with reality. While Quinn has his reputation as a comedian for a reason, the show is funny, but uneven at best.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
