About the show
Amanda and Marcela have a lot of rage about the state of America’s democracy. Yes, they get it, racism and misogyny are not new to this country, but they thought that America was moving towards MLK’s and Angela Davis’ dream. But now they realize we might be regressing and they are pissed. Yes, they could march, tweet or even call their congress person but they tried that and it clearly didn’t work. And as much as people try to tell them that they should be positive and optimistic, they are not here for that. What they really want to do is yell about everything that makes them angry and they want you to join them in their rage against the machine, where we can all boo and scream at all the faces of oppression.
Smash the System is a political comedy show that covers current events, with a lot of rage.
For each show the hosts will have bits such as:
personal touches: hosts talk about how a new political issue has affected them personally
freak out or don’t freak out: hosts tell you how you should feel about the news,
boo them: we will boo particular individuals from the government, media and pop culture who are being evil.
Hosts will be joined by stand-up comedians, sketch and improv teams who also want to boo and scream at faces of oppression.
