Make 'Em Laugh: The Funny Business Of America

Satire And Parody: Sock It To Me?

Season 1, Episode 6 of 6

Americans have always loved to make fun of the world around them using the slings and arrows of parody and satire. Whether it was Will Rogers, Johnny Carson, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert poking a finger in the eye of the government or Sid Caesar, Mel Brooks and the "Saturday Night Live" gang lampooning the latest blockbuster, generations have reveled in the anarchic tradition of mocking American life, politics and preoccupations.
