    Le Show is a program of satire, humor, and commentary about the week's news. Comedy sketches written and performed by multi-talented multimedia artist Harry Shearer, interwoven with an eclectic, ever-changing blend of music; from world to pop, soul to jazz. Shearer says about Le Show, "I do it because I don't do standup, and I don't do sitcoms, and the radio broadcast enables me to do what I think is funny in a broadcast medium without having to listen either to network executives or Canadian producers."

    David says: "Overpriced!"
    "It's Le Diatribe Politique"
    Overall

    I really do like Harry Shearer's appearances in films and I've enjoyed the occassional comic bits I've heard on other NPR news programs. That's why this program was particularly disappointing to me.

    About 1/4 of the nearly hour-long program is just straight music -- and not particulalry good music (IMHO) -- that I just fast forward through.

    The rest is largely undisguised Bush/Republican bashing. So if you like that, this is the show for you. (I would like to hear some of the shows aired during the Clinton years to see if he's an equal opportunity offender.)

    There are occassional clever bits, but not nearly enough to make me want to renew my subscription to this program.
