I always think of satire as being mockery of real events, which of course is nonsense. Don't mind me.

I think the mess that was the 10 o'clock show killed the idea of political comedy shows, that and shows about current events are harder to sell to Dave.

Mock the week isn't about current events. It's mostly comedians forcing jokes from their stand-up routine into whatever "question" is being asked.
