Top 10 Political Comedians - Check out this list of the 10 best political stand-up comedians, from Bill Maher to Dennis Miller.
It might seem like political comedians have an easy job -- to take shots at leaders and bureaucrats for whom the public at large already have a healthy dose of cynical mistrust. But the best political comedians do more than take shots; they shape the discussion and become part of the process through the act of telling jokes. They can be more than simple commentators; they can be voices. Funny, funny voices.
