With this election looming, it's important to keep two seemingly contradictory ideas in your head: First, that voting is essential. And second, that laughing at politicians is an essential part of democracy. Especially when it's Mitt Romney.
The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including some still spooky Halloween-themed fun, can be found over at Splitsider.
Other highlights from the week in comedy:
- Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman did their shows without audiences for a night because of Hurricane Sandy wreaking havoc across the Northeast, while Bill Hader and this weekend's host Louis C.K. promised that SNL will go on.
- A premiere date for Arrested Development was also set (April 2013).
- We interviewed Kristen Schaal, stand-up Taylor Williamson, Happy Endings stars Adam Pally and Casey Wilson, Daily Show producers Tim Greenberg, Miles Kahn, and Stu Miller, women in comedy author Yael Kohen, and Nature Calls co-stars Patton Oswalt and Rob Riggle.
- We looked at the technological advances of comedy trailblazers Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Jerry Lewis, and Louis C.K.
