Mocking the media

    Face it; sometimes the news is funny. And we at Newsworks and WHYY are not too proud to laugh at “ourselves” sometimes.

    To make light of the current events of 2010, WHYY reporter Peter Crimmins crashed the brainstorm session of the all-comedy theatrical troupe 1812 Productions as they sketched out media-mocking skits for their new show “This Is The Week That Is.”

    Crimmins’ report and accompanying video includes an interview from the troupe’s mastermind Jennifer Childs, as well as clips from the new show. Check in on Sunday morning for the full story.
