Jimmy Tingle pulled no punches on Trump during stand-up routine
Stand-up comedy, social justice and politics mingled in a tasty brew last Friday night at Sanders Theatre in Harvard Square, where renowned Cambridge-born comic Jimmy Tingle presented his one-man show, “Humor for Humanity: Jimmy Tingle in the age of Trump.”
Captivating his audience of 1,100 over two hours with one intermission, Tingle pulled no punches in his assessment of the new president’s first two weeks in office. Cathartic in its exposure of the absurdities, follies and human toll of Trump’s decisions, Tingle’s humor had bite but not bitterness. If there were Trump voters in the audience, they had no cause to feel unwelcome. Tingle focused not on the man but on his actions.
