Laugh to Keep from Cryin': JFL, CBC Preview U.S. Election with New Comedy Content

To some, it’s one of the most important events of our time. To others, it’s a big joke.

The American electoral process and the upcoming vote for U.S. President are the topic of pointed barbs, online games and some sharp humour as CBC and Just For Laughs present the all-new comedy special, The American Dream?

The JFL show, airing Sunday November 4 on CBC, is described as “a bundle of fun and laughter with a hint of political flare”.

Viewers can cast their own vote, however, and pass judgement on the humour at a special companion game and website created for the show.

The election is a joke, according to this interactive site, and the questions it asks as part of an online contest called Who the hell said that?

Exclusive video previews of the upcoming JFL show are also streaming online, with links through the game site, YouTube, CBC's and JFL's website, to clips created by (so far) Lewis Black and Alonzo Bodden.

The tongue in cheek contest site was developed by Montreal-based digital media agency Mediavation; additional clips are expected online before the show airs, and before the votes drop.
