Comedy and politics go together perfectly! Russians have been the butt of Americans jokes for decades.
 

Louis C.K. came to Russia in 1994 and is still using it in his routine today but it’s the same old stereotypes as two decades ago.

NBC’s Saturday Night Live twists facts in their fake news segment about a very serious bloody war in Ukraine.

Does this count as misinformation even if it makes you laugh?
