DONALD TRUMP CONSIDERING POLITICAL CAREER

HOLLYWOOD – Famed comedian and reality TV show personality, Donald Trump might consider one day running for office, it was revealed today.

The news comes as Donald Trump prepares for his guest host spot on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

A spokeswoman close to the Trump camp said:

Mr. Trump is a hilarious and highly articulate comedian who has been Andy Kaufman style situational comedy for the past twenty years or so. He is so committed to his comic art that he never breaks character. It is really unbelievable. The boorish, racist, sexist, stupid oaf that he hilariously holds up for lampooning and ridicule, he lives with that character 24/7. However, he is thinking about possibly running for political office so that he can perhaps more effectively criticize the right. He fears that his own practical joking of the GOP, his punking if you will, is being widely misinterpreted.

Saturday Night Live show runner Lorne Michaels dismissed criticism that Trump was already a Presidential candidate.

If you can’t see that clearly for the joke it is then you don’t understand comedy. One day Trump will be seen as one of the greats. A Sacha Baron Cohen of interventionist comedy, a Lenny Bruce. But like Stephen Colbert, there comes a time when the character becomes too restrictive. In private life Donald is really progressive and I could see him running just little left of Bernie Sanders, or perhaps as an independent.

However, many of his political opponents insist that Trump is not a clever comic playing an incredibly realistic and detailed buffoon of a character, but rather is in fact exactly what he seems. But with his closest rival Ben Carson insisting that he (Carson) did stab someone to death, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find out where the comedy ends and the politics begins, if it ever does.

Saturday Night Live will be recorded on Friday.

DAVID ZUCKER’S CONSERVATIVE COMEDY CLUB

HOLLYWOOD – David Zucker – director of such brilliant films as Airplane! and such dire posthumous-smelling tripe as An American Carol – today announced the formation of the Conservative Comedy Club, an organisation which will seek to redress the liberal/left wing bias in the chuckle farm.

Everyone thinks conservative aren’t funny,’ said Zucker. ‘They think we’re a bunch of bigoted fearful haters, who consider Bill O’Reilly an intellectual. But that just isn’t true. The first bit I mean. we’re hilarious. I mean look at Sarah Palin.’

The CCC was welcomed by its charter members Kelsey Gramner and Adam Sandler:

It’s about time that we had someone championing the ‘Right’ to be funny. Did you see what I did there?

For years, there has been a tendency to think of incisive and funny comedy of having almost inevitably an open minded liberal bias. Despite the best efforts of Andrew ‘the Dice’ Clay, many of the best comedians – Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, Louis CK, George Carlin, John Stewart, Bill Maher, Sarah Silverman, and Jerry Sienfeld – come from liberal or radical left wing backgrounds, or – like Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor – are black. Zucker says:

funny

The CCC will be a place where John Ratzenberger and Kelsey Grammer can sit down and share a joke without being accused of endorsing homosexuality or a Cheers spin off.
