Guest host Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show) presents a colorful and diverse collection of works that look at Presidential elections, warts and all. Roy Wood Jr. performs Mark Twain’s outrageous confessional “A Presidential Candidate.” Samantha Bee reads from Molly Ivins’ “Our Boy George.” Crystal Dickinson performs an excerpt from Unbought and Unbossed, the memoir of America’s first Black Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm. Washington columnist Alexandra Petri offers a Samuel Beckett pastiche, “Waiting for Pivot,” performed by Petri with Jordan Klepper, Aasif Mandvi, and Paul Giamatti. Klepper finishes the show reading from Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72.
