While comic Tim Slagle has always had a knack for political humor, it's a subject he's trying to move away from. "I don't think the country has ever been more polarized than it is today," he says. "A lot of club owners are very hesitant to book political acts because they're going to send away half the audience angry." He does miss the subject, though. "It still is where my heart is. I think satire is one of the higher forms of comedy, right up there with irony." Even without politics to make fun of, he still has plenty of material. "I've been getting a lot of mileage out of talking about bachelorette parties, which any comic will tell you is the bane of the club," he explains. "The ladies come in and pretty much want to rule the show. The girl that has to have a bachelorette party is very territorial about her wedding. She can't understand that in a group of 200 strangers, not everybody is excited to learn that she's getting married." 18+.
