Jeff Kreisler’s hilarious insights into society’s foibles combined with his intelligence, knack for humor, and genial spirits made for an excellent hour of political humor that could be appreciated by both Democrats and Republicans... Kreisler serves as the intermediary comedic glue that has the power to unite political fronts across social spheres.” - Boston College Observer

"The Americans" is a live political sitcom that had a tremendously successful debut at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
"The Americans" is a fast-paced, absurd, multimedia sketch comedy show parodying American family, politics, and culture. When money problems hit the once wealthy Americans, the family members scramble to gain control of their crumbling world. Republican dad Sam takes desperate measures to reverse his growing credibility gap. Left-wing mom Libby vows to maintain the household's feng shui. Spoiled daughter Mary chases celebrity while fending off advances from her boyfriend Ira Raq.
What will happen to The Americans?
"Brilliant, cutting satire"
— Lizz Winstead, creator of "The Daily Show"
"A punchy multimedia sketch show parodying US political culture... the irreverence of American Dad and the borderline slapstick of Mr Show, the three Americans don’t just represent the stereotypical US family, they are ciphers for the competing claims on the nation’s future... Daily Show-style satirical... The Americans succeeds in being a colourful and engaging portrait of our stateside cousins."
"a laugh-out-loud script"
"strong performances... an excellent send-up"
— Fest Mag

Longer set in a theatre, fun, older (i.e. Romney was relevant):
At Caroline's (had a monthly show there), a bit more... strident (performing between W. Kamau Bell & Dick Gregory):
(Here's more political stuff from the Glasgow Comedy Festival...)
"Slick, political sharp-shooting... His hour holds some of the smartest political material around. One of the things that makes Kreisler fascinating is his unashamed love for America; he just hates what has been done to it. The final section may be the most powerful description of the past few years of US history you'll hear... "
