KQED Plus: Wed, Jan 9, 2013 -- 10:00 PM
For three decades, humorist Mark Russell shared his insights on politics and society with public television audiences nationwide. A master of pointed one-liners and sharp-witted piano parodies, Russell remained an equal-opportunity quipster, lampooning events and newsmakers from all political persuasions. This newly produced retrospective pays tribute to his talent and legacy of laughter. It features clips from some of Russell's more than 100 public television specials (1975-2004). Presidential campaigns, congressional antics and defining moments from the Iran-Contra affair, the first Gulf War and the Monica Lewinski scandal provide ample comedic fodder for his poetic satire. Russell, in a present-day interview, provides context for his most memorable moments and offers humorous reminisces.
