Keep laughing, keep crying, keep yourself from dying.

2021 was... more of the same, wasn't it? Sure, there was a vaccine - but from the mindset of creating comedy, we're still in a pandemic, live performance is a risky venture and all creativity seems to flow from a slimming few mega corporations. So, was there anything of value that slipped through the cracks. Vic is back with his favorite podcasting pal Chandler Dean to run through the gamut of comedy output for the past year: what films broke through a shrinking window? What TV stuck the landing in the end, was axed too soon, or started strong enough to warrant attention? Whatever happened to the stand-up special anyway? And what legends did we lose among the wreckage of this second hard year of COVID living? Plus, the bottom of the barrel stories barely fit to cover! But cover it, we shall. It's the 2021 reflection podcast! Originally recorded Jan 5, 2022. Hail Satire! is hosted and produced by Vic Shuttee.
