Political Satirist Barry Crimmins Brings No Hero Tour To CLT


Every once in a while, during an election year, it’s important to stop and take stock of the absurdity of it all. If you happen to be in the audience when Barry Crimmins takes the stage at the Comedy Zone Tuesday night, you can do just that.

If you know Crimmin’s work then you know what you’re in for. If not, well, this show is a combination of act and activism, love of country and distrust of those who lead. Sharp wit and tough recollections.

We asked WFAE’s Political Reporter Tom Bullock to take a brief pause from election coverage to talk with Crimmin’s about the 2016 election and Tuesday night’s show. Unlike his act, this report has no swear words. But it does deal with some very strong views and sensitive content towards the end.
