There’s nothing funny about creative destruction, sugar subsidies or the minimum wage.
Andrew Heaton begs to differ.
The quicksilver wit makes all of the above hilarious while teaching us something about our amazing economic engine. He’s done it with his excellent EconPop series as well as “Mostly Weekly” for Reason TV.
The free market has a friend in Heaton, no doubt. And he’s got a few new irons in the creative fire coming our way.
Best of all?
How often do you hear libertarian-leaning comics who are legitimately funny? It’s a small club, and Heaton is a charter member.
He talked about his segue into comedy, why political satire in the Age of Trump is so tricky and why he admires both Stephen Colbert and “The Daily Show” in the latest HiT ‘cast.
