Six Modern Day Masters of Satire

Seth Macfarlane


His portrayal of the characters on Family Guy are more than enough to include him in this list.  But he now has two other shows to boot.  I wonder if a Quagmire spinoff will ever happen.  I kind of wish it doesn’t.   He’s better as a side character.  Anywa, Macfarlane has a very funny way about his writing.  It’s something that definitely fits the mold of satire but in a way that’s not so obvious.  He uses a ton of sarcasm but also wit and small jokes that only few would get.  I love this dry approach.

Jon Stewart


Ever since Stewart took over the Daily Show he’s reigned supreme on Comedy Central (until Daniel Tosh came onto the scene).  But when you talk politics and you think political satire you always think of Stewart first.   While he’s definitely a liberal he pokes fun at all parties.  And he does it in a juvenile way that actually takes a ton of wit and intelligence to come up with.   He’s one of the few that makes politics fun, really because he’s always making fun of it.
