There’s nothing particularly funny about today’s political climate—or, for that matter, its environmental one—but if you’re looking to get some last laughs before the apocalypse, Matt Forde can provide them. A former Labor official, Forde takes his current career as a comedian on the road, offering an hour-long set of satire and funny jabs primarily aimed at the Tories and Brexit. Still, seeing that the U.K. election proved, according to Forde, that “facts don’t matter anymore,” all political parties are subject to his wit. —C.J.F.
