Two voices of progressive comedy: Ron Placone and Graham Elwood.
Both on Jimmy Dore's show and also on the Progressive Comedy Tour they get out their viewpoint without the intense harshness that's become commonplace in today's politically charged conversations and performances.
It's not all politics. Mark asks Graham about his one night marriage to a stripper in Las Vegas and, in a moment with less levity, Graham also talks about his home being foreclosed upon as a result of predatory banking practices.
How do the different crowds nationwide react to the comedy and today's political situation is among what's covered in this episode.
