Mr. Marshall returns to bring us another feast of laughter with a look at the antics of Peabody and Emmy winners, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Both Stewart and Colbert are known for satiric looks at politics and the news: they draw laughter from the headlines. Mr. Marshall will deconstruct the talents of these masterful comics and show us how they work their magic. You’ll sample individual scenes or “bits” with Marshall, hear explanations of the techniques at play, and discover just which of them works best to tickle your own funny bone. Laughter is still the best medicine.
