What's this show all about?
Comedy about the Economy.
It’s about capitalism and human nature and what the fuck is happening to the world.
Each week I look at some aspect of the economy that's mind-bogglingly absurd and show you how it works and why it's so funny you have to laugh so you won't cry.
All capitalism wants is to maximize profits. So if we let it, it'll take over our art, our political system, our religion, and everything else and make us do whatever will make it more money. Lately, our society has been giving capitalism free reign with disastrous consequences.
It is the issue of the 21st century.
I'm taking a serialized journey: telling a story that starts in utter confusion and (hopefully) eventually ends with understanding and even a solution or two.
Also involved: funny movie clips, lots of music, and far too many sexual metaphors used to explain economics.
My name's Brian Ronaghan and I'm in a love/hate relationship with capitalism.
