Episode Summary

Satiristas with Paul Provenza and Dan Dion
Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Lewis Black, Billy Connolly, Patton Oswalt, Robin Williams, George F-ing Carlin. They are all Satiristas! -- a cadre of independent comic provocateurs targeting political hypocrisy, media distortion, complacency and the institutionalized ignorance infecting American culture.Through candid interviews and intimate art portraits, stand-up comedy veteran and filmmaker Paul Provenza and comedy's go-to photographer Dan Dion shine a spotlight on some of the most interesting comic artists who influence and critique American culture.Provenza and Dion offer up the most unflinching, the late night commentators, the veteran greats, the legends, the household names, the virtuosos, the film and television icons, the cult favorites, the provocateurs, and the literary comics -- everyone weighs in for a funny and fearless celebration -- and an extensive survey of the modern art of satire from the contrarians, protesters, and troublemakers who make Americans respond with equal parts laughter and outrage.moreless
