What would happen if one of the funniest men became its leading one? Oscar Winner® Robin Williams reunites up with the director of Good Morning, Vietnam to answer just that question in a comic tale of an entertainer's accidental rise to power, Man of the Year.
Acerbic performer Tom Dobbs has made his career out of skewering politicians and speaking the mind of the exasperated nation on his talk show. He cracked scathing jokes at a factured system night after night until he came up with a really funny idea: Why not run for president himself?
After a flip moment, Dobbs ignites a grassroots movement that puts him on the ballot. Hot on the campaign trail, he debates elected drones and says exactly what frustrated voters have often thought. Nov. 2nd later, the muckraker wins - only to learn that a computer voting error gave him the victory. With the time ticking on the inaugural clock, Dobbs has a big decision to make: Should he go back behind the mike or stay in the Oval Office?
This election season, comic actors, including Laura Linney, Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum and Lewis Black join Robin Williams in a pulled-from-the-headlines comedy. Together with Oscar® winner Barry Levinson, they'll show the world that - only in America - a comedian can become the country's next president and our Man of the Year.
NASA spent 30 million dollars creating the pen that would write upside down in space. Did you know that? The Russians, however, were able to solve this problem with... five cent pencil! Writes right side up, writes upside down, after five quarts of vodka, is still writing!
People say Intelligent Design, we must teach Intelligent Design. Look at the human body, is that intelligent? You have a waste processing plant next to a recreation area.
I did inhale, because I thought, "What the hell, it's lit, it's in my hand, I'll inhale it."
When I was a young boy I used to look at pictures of naked ladies; hence my right hand is very strong. I touched myself more than a third base coach.
HAL decided it liked me.
The president wants to pass an amendment banning same-sex marriage. Anybody who's been married knows it's always the same sex!
If you're representing special interest groups, maybe we should be like NASCAR with the little patches on the back: "Enron: We take your money and run!"
I support hydrogen cars...
That's weird, because you're backed by oil companies.
How many analogies do you have left?
How many does it take to make my point?
HMOs will pay for your Viagra, but they won't pay for your glasses. So you can have a hard-on, but you can't see where to put it.
I had sex with a prostitute when I was 21. I was so bad, she gave me a refund.
Everyone's going to be writing about how honest you are and how straightforward. I just hope your honesty doesn't undercut your irreverence.
Well, I want to do a show about gay farmers and call it "Crop Circles"; is that offensive?
Not to me.
Today I was in the Oval Office for a preparatory meeting and I sat behind the President's desk and I had a reality check. I sat there and I went, "Wait a minute, I'm a jester. A jester doesn't rule the kingdom; he makes fun of the king."
No, I did not sleep with that woman... but I wanted to!
Could this man be our next president?
What if a comedian ran for president?
..........What if he won?
Elections are made to be broken
