    On last night’s Totally Biased, Lewis Black stopped by to chat with host W. Kamau Bell about sports, men’s fashion and low-calorie alternatives to cheeseburgers. JK! They talked about the election, you silly geese. What else would they talk about? In fact, the veteran comedian and the rising comedy star spoke about what made Romney lose the election (hint: it has something to do with the headline above), the fundamental

    David Letterman rips into Karl Rove for his super awkward election night analysis (Videos)

    The presidential election is over, but the news — and more importantly, the videos being circulated — surrounding the night Barack Obama won a second term, are far from over. You’re probably aware that shortly after the famously conservative Fox News called the election for Obama (before CNN, even), Karl Rove, current political consultant and former Deputy Chief of Staff under George W. Bush, spent about three solid minutes questioning

    Ricky Gervais would’ve voted for Obama, you know…if he was allowed to vote (Video)

    Before the election results were in yesterday, Ricky Gervais dropped by the Opie and Anthony Show on SiriusXM, where naturally an Obama-vs-Romney discussion developed. Although Gervais isn’t allowed to vote in America, as he’s still a British citizen despite spending most of his time in Los Angeles, he was painfully clear as to who he supports. “Obama,” Gervais tells comedian Jim Norton, the show’s third mic co-host. “The real president,

    Vote for Obama and Will Ferrell will eat garbage or whatever (Video)

    Will Ferrell may not be known for his biting political satire, but he feels strongly enough about the current election to campaign for Barack Obama’s second term for president of the United States of America. How strongly? Well, strongly enough that he’ll eat garbage, or take a dump on Mitt Romney’s dinner table or do a dance — if you’d only get out there tomorrow and vote for Obama.

    New study finds late night hosts make fun of Romney twice as much as Obama

    Ever since Barack Obama replaced George W. Bush in the White House four years ago, politically minded comedians have attempted to adjust their focus to a president who is decidedly not the slow-moving target Bush was. And on the eve of election day, it seems Obama is still enjoying his status as a hard-to-make-fun-of commander in chief. According to a new study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs,

A play on the classic School House Rocks songs that still help educate our youth, this one features a homeless Uncle Sam who’s more of a conspiracy theorist than a patriot. Or is he more patriot?

    You should read comedian Rob Delaney’s message to voters

    Though he’s widely known for his hilarious, off-color quips on Twitter, comedian Rob Delaney has, in recent months, become increasingly vocal about the presidential election. Over the summer, in fact, his tweets became the most re-tweeted on the subject of Mitt Romney. Delaney has now harnessed his influence — 648,000 Twitter followers and rising — to encourage Americans to vote for Barack Obama on Nov. 6., reasoning, among other things,

    Seth Meyers and John Oliver want different things from presidential election (Exclusive)

    Regardless of how you feel about Barack Obama or Mitt Romney (or Gary Johnson), this election has provided many laughs and ample material for our favorite comedians (Super PACs, binders full of women, and Perry’s “oops”).

    Stephen Colbert wants to teabag Donald Trump for charity (Video)

    In response to Donald Trump’s absurd proposal to Barack Obama yesterday — that he will give $5 million to charity if our president provides his birth certificate and college records to prove he’s an American citizen — Stephen Colbert has announced his own charitable plan: He will dip into his own Super PAC’s coffers and give $1 million to a charity of Trump’s choice. But here’s the catch: Trump has
