To get us into the spirit of the New Yorker's annual celebration of arts and ideas, here's a full-length video of the "Political Humor" panel discussion I attended at last year's Festival.
New Yorker features editor Susan Morrison moderates the lively chitchat with comedy writers Samantha Bee (The Daily Show), Andy Borowitz (general Andy Borowitzitude), longtime Saturday Night Live veteran Jim Downey, The Onion's resident depressive genius Todd Hanson, and Allison Silverman (Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report).
