December is a special time. A time where Donald Trump and conservatives on Fox News pretend there is a war on Christmas. Laughing Liberally Milwaukee, a monthly progressive political comedy show featuring some of Milwaukee’s top progressive comedians, decided to make that a reality with their War On X-mas Comedy Extravaganza. And with Republican attacks on voting, health care, immigrants, the environment and more, we need progressive laughs now more than ever.
Laughing Liberally Milwaukee is hosted by comedian, cartoonist and progressive talk radio host Matthew Filipowicz. Matthew’s work have been featured on CNN, NPR, PBS, HBO, BBC, Ain’t It Cool News, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, the Nation, the London Times, and countless sites in the progressive blogosphere including Salon, Daily Kos and the Huffington Post.
Comedians on the December 15th bill include: @Dina Nina Martine,Jason Hillman, Marcos Lara, Stevie Leigh Crutcher, Josh Fred, Brittany Tilander and sketch comedy group The Accountants Of Homeland Security.
In addition to some of the finest progressive comedians Milwaukee has to offer, each Laughing Liberally Milwaukee will feature a special interview with a local activist, journalist, or political figure. This month’s guest is Wisconsin State Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa.
