Dispatch: Assange Takes It To The Next Level
Recently, I saw a photo of Julian Assange online. He’s a dead ringer for Bill Maher. However you spell his name. It isn’t worth me looking it up. You know who I mean. Maher is nearly Assange’s doppelganger. I’d like to see some sketch comedy (SNL?) featuring Bill Maher as Julian Assange. In fact, I’m thinking a spin-off. Why not?
What could be more hilarious than a TV series about a guy like Assange living in an Ecuadorian embassy, having whacky press conferences, and dodging international assassins? Whoa, the highjinks!! It’d be a mad-cap roller-coaster ride of a series. Every week, they’d have someone impersonating a world or national celebrity. Oh yeah, this would be great.
Episode one: Maher as Assange has to meet with Angela Merkel, played by Miley Cyrus. Right away he’s goosing her and chasing her around, hooting, crashing through stuff. Comedy gold. I see that coming next fall on CNN. Each episode Maher will have some other configuration of facial hair and a different hairdo. Just like Assange does in real life.
