"Politically inclined New York City comedians suggest they view the comic’s role as that of gadfly in a conformist age.
Camille Theobald, who took the stage at Stand Up New York, joking, “I’ll vote for Hillary when she finally admits it was actually she who had the affair with Monica,” spoke afterward about the role of the jester.
“Comedians are society’s truth tellers,” she said. “It’s our job to make hard topics interesting. If people can laugh, they are opening their ears.”"
