Spotlight on - Trump vs. Bernie
embed-1
From Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin to now Larry David’s Bernie Sanders, "Saturday Night Live" has long been considered the home of political satire every election cycle.

Spotlight on - Hope That Helps
image-1>> The age of the Internet has forever changed the way patrons and businesses handle customer support. When everyone can tweet directly at Delta that their plane is too smelly, or you can complain about the color of Doritos to their Facebook page, it’s never been a better time for the bitter and entitled.

While a few comics perform traditional stand-up,...
