POLITICAL SATIRE FROM THE RIGHT: "HALF HOUR NEWS HOUR" STARTS TAPING THIS WEEKEND


Via Robert J. Avrech at Seraphic Secret:
Have you ever wished that there was a conservative version of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on TV? Now, There is. Are you ready for some hip, edgy political satire on late night TV that comes from a conservative perspective? Joel Surnow (creator/executive producer, 24) has created a right-of-center alternative to The Daily Show called "The Half Hour News Hour."

On Saturday, January 20th (early evening) we will be filming two episodes of "The Half Hour News Hour" back to back. The episodes will be taped in front of a live studio audience at the FOX lot on Pico Blvd in West Los Angeles. The shows are scheduled to air on the FOX News Channel in early February, and if well received, will continue to air on a weekly basis.

"The Half Hour News Hour" is all comedy and will feature guest appearances by high-profile stars of the conservative movement. What's needed is a studio audience of hip Republicans to boost the energy and make these shows something special. We want real republicans, not a hired audience! That's US!

The taping will start at about 5:00 PM and will take about two hours. You will be added to the drive on list @ FOX and should plan on arriving to the lot no later than 4:00 PM. If you'd like to be part of the studio audience for this important and highly entertaining event: Please RSVP as soon as possible to: hhnh2007@gmail.com -- Make sure to mention in the email that you are with the Hollywood Republicans. Once we receive your RSVP you will be forwarded more detailed information including the exact time and directions. These free tickets will go fast.
If you're in L.A., go see it and report back to us here at TAB! [Reliapundit adds: More on this HERE and HERE.]

Update: WATCH A CLIP!

I do look forward to this.

There's another show that does hip, edgy humor from a political right perspective. It's called the Infidel Bloggers Alliance Radio Show.

Jesus, this show sucks. It doesn't rise to the level of humor, let alone satire.
