America Meet World: How Global Satirists See Us
As the 2016 US presidential elections approach, the media is already buzzing with bets. (Is Hillary really running?) And naturally the world is watching, as US politics not only impact global economies, but also the horse show of US presidential elections is frankly the best show in town. (Could we make up “binders full of women”?)
To share unique, funny and eye-opening perspectives, we’re bringing together some of the best global satirists to reflect on American politics. Joined by Saman Arbabi, producer of the most popular satirical television shows in Iran; Anuvab Pal, author, playwright and India’s smartest comic according to the New York Times; David Kibuuka, international correspondent for South Africa’s Emmy-nominated political satire show LNN, and moderated by Trina DasGupta, founder of the first global comedy platform, America Meet World, this session will explore political satire around the globe and (with no shortage of humor) reflect upon how the world sees us.
