Le Show

Le Show is a weekly syndicated public radio show hosted by satirist Harry Shearer.

Le Show was first broadcast in the mid-1980s, and is carried on many National Public Radio stations. The program is a bit of a hodge-podge -- satirical news commentary alternates with music and sketch comedy. Shearer, an impressionist who is probably best known for his voice work on The Simpsons, writes the sketches and performs all the voices.

Recurring features include:

Among the presidential and political parodies are: Le Show usually originates live on Sunday mornings from "The Le Show Dome" at KCRW in Santa Monica, ("The city known around the world," Shearer says in his signoff, "as the home… of the homeless.") but is occasionally recorded at other NPR stations when Shearer is on the road.
