From the Montreal Gazette:
On most every front, it has been a year from hell – save for one. The worst of times is invariably the best of times for those in the chuckles trade, and it has been this year.
Thank Trump. He has been the comedy gift that just keeps on giving.
On the late-night TV-satire circuit in the U.S., John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert, among others, have been reaping the awards of The Donald. Not since those halcyon days of Dubya have talk-show hosts had such fodder. American standups Bill Burr, Lewis Black and Amy Schumer also have all been beneficiaries.
