2020 was an unquestionable nightmare for reasons beyond the purview of comedy... but this year of COVID will undeniably have long lasting implications on the world of entertainment for years to come. From the meager comedy films that trickled out in the theatres and on "Premium VOD" - looks like Bad Boys for Life was movie of the year, right? Late night shows went home and reunions from Parks and Rec, 30 Rock and more were filmed by family members. Some of the comedy's biggest legends passed away including Carl Reiner, Jerry Stiller, Fred Willard and Buck Henry... while other shows hit milestones and streaming became a lot more important. Plus a year of social upheaval brought to light bold new comic voices like Amber Ruffin, Sarah Cooper and shined a light on reliable ol' favorite like Sasha Baron Cohen and Jerry Seinfeld. Joining the year end wrap up in one of Vic's oldest friend, funny person and newly minted author of ECHOHEAD, Tommy Waas! Originally recorded December 28, 2020. Hail Satire! is hosted and produced by Vic Shuttee.
