The show features numerous guests, from Senators and Congresspersons, to comedians and actors. The comedy ranges from the high-brow to the basest humor allowed by the FCC. Regular guests like Edie McClurg, Aisha Tyler, Hal Sparks and John Fugelsang provide "must hear" appearances almost every day of the week. In the last year, TSMS has birthed a traveling stage show, called The Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour, featuring Sparks, Tyler (sometimes), Miller and Fugelsang. It's been selling out all over the country, and getting rave reviews. It's doing so well, Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller are attempting to rival them with their own tour. Except O'Reilly and Miller aren't funny.
This weekend, Sexy Liberal was in Los Angeles, which is the radio show's home base. And since they're in Hollywood, they got some liberal friends to join them: Lily Tomlin, McClurg and Rob Reiner. Even LaVoie and Ward got to get in on the act. I'm jealous. Hey, Steph! I live in Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world! Come entertain us! Please?
Can a comedy tour be 'sexy and liberal?'
