It’s the onus of comedy at large to question. Right? Naturally, the Occupy Wall Street protests have coincided quite well with that notion questioning the unregulated corporate culture in America.
Comedian Lee Camp recently gave a spirited performance for protesters; and he’s not the only one. Without any of the traditional trappings of live comedy such as a stage, more comedians including Chappelle’s Show co-creator Neal Brennan have given their time to entertain and support the protesters throughout the country.
Notably at Occupy Wall St. over the last week, Jamie Kilstein performed two new bits appropriate for the occasion. Comedian Jim Tews documented fellow comedian Ted Alexandro’s (pictured above) involvement outside of comedy in the movement. And comedian Travis Irvine took a more traditional non-partisan “man on the street” approach. Whether you agree with the movement or not, thankfully the conversation about “Occupy” has expanded and more coverage is being dedicated to the thousands of people that have gathered together. Check out the trio of comedians below.
