Everyone’s talking about this new show. It’s on a streaming service I hardly ever watch called BBC News, though from what I can tell it is already heavily syndicated everywhere. It’s such a hot topic of discussion around the water cooler at work that I finally felt obliged to check it out, just to see if it is worth all the hype.




The political arena is a farce. You either choose to laugh at it, or you have to go mad. Parlor Tricks chooses to laugh. If we can’t get rid of fake news and propaganda, might as well make a mockery of it. Parlor Tricks publishes political and media satire on Medium.
