Meet the Bill Maher From the Right Who is Changing Entertainment

Evan SayetConservatives frequently complain there are not enough of us in show business, but that may be because they are overlooking some of their top talent. Evan Sayet, a former mainstream stand-up comic and writer for comedians like Bill Maher, has hosted The Right to Laugh for years, the longest running conservative commentary show in America. He is taking his show on tour around the country this year, with stops in Phoenix, Chicago, Boston and New York. Rush Limbaugh, Dennis Miller, Larry Elder and Dennis Prager all call him “brilliant.” Hugh Hewitt describes him this way, “There’s funny, there’s VERY funny and then there’s Evan Sayet.” Michael Barone of U.S. News and World Report says, “Evan has crossed that line from ‘funny to important.'”

Evan’s jokes pierce through the rhetoric, forcing people to think, as they hit the left both intellectually and emotionally,

“See, the idea of being a conservative is we try to better ourselves. Liberals spend their lives just being themselves. And you would think they would love the Catholics because you don’t even wait until you’re born to start being yourself. You were yourself in the womb. And you would think the liberals would love you for that, because, what is the womb? Basically, it’s a liberal paradise. Right? Basically, you’re sitting in a hot tub, feeding off of somebody else. They should love babies in the womb, instead of wanting to abort them.”

I had the chance to interview Evan this weekend and was surprised at some of the things he told me about conservatives in entertainment. Since the younger generations are increasingly interested in entertainment, conservatives need to start making more inroads there. I asked Evan how we can get more conservatives interested in becoming entertainers, and he said that wasn’t the problem. There are plenty of conservative entertainers, the problem is we’re not supporting them. Unlike the left, conservatives are more likely to have families, so they tend to be busier with family events, church, etc., blowing off our entertainers.
