Kick Start Laugh After the Machine
For a couple years now Laughter Against The Machine (W. Kamau Bell, Nato Green, and Janine Brito) have been doing shows in Northern California with a few toe dips into the Pacific Northwest. Warm, familiar, liberal places (except Sacramento) where we were pretty sure most of the audience would welcome them with open arms (except Marin). But the time has come for them to leave our creature comforts. It’s time for them to step away from the land of organic quinoa, gourmet coffee made by bespectacled hipsters, latex-free butt plugs sold by androgynous feminists, and venture into less familiar territory. The time has come for them to put our money where our mouth is and wade into the most polarized quagmires in the US, the flashpoints of American ignorance and upheaval. To roam the country bringing humor to the people who need it the most, and trying to answer the age-old question: can they take a joke?
Laughter Against the Machine have started a kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a documentary film about their tour. To learn more about the project and donate, visit the Laughter Against the Machine kickstarter page.
