Synopsis

Building on their viral videos, bestselling book, and global media, the Canada Party returns with "The North American," a politically oriented news-and-sketch show with cross-border appeal. "The North American" offers a window into the self-inflicted satire of our continental BFFs, challenging the absurdity and hypocrisy of our leaders, media, and popular culture, taking viewers on a guided tour through the Age of Irony.

“So we turned to our comedy shows, of all places, to find sources we can trust, because our news anchors stopped taming lions and started cramming increasingly obese clowns into increasingly tiny cars.” - "America, But Better"

Also some stuff about Mexico.

    The concept seems good. Political comedy can be really funny if well done. Although, the video wasn't funny enough for me.
