The Other Side is the official podcast of a great comedy club, the DC Improv.

Jan 11, 2016

In 2016, America chooses its next president - and the DC Improv chooses the funniest president of all time.

For our debut, speechwriter and humorist Mark Katz helps us look at Bill Clinton. Mark was the writer / editor / coordinator for Clinton's speeches at the "Silly Season" dinners: the White House Correspondents Association, the Gridiron Club, and so forth. His memoir about those years, "Clinton and Me," has fantastic insights into Clinton's personality, the art of speechwriting and humor in general.

More on Mark Katz:

This podcast is made possible by Telegraph Giraffe. Next week: Dan Preston of Mary Washington helps us with James Monroe.
