challenging satire for the funny bone and the thinky bone...

There's something wrong with American satire. We depend on our late night hosts to fix the world, but at the end of the day, we love them not only because some of them are quite brilliant, but because they allow us to deflect blame for society's ills onto others. Trevor Noah helps us laugh at Trump, John Oliver helps us laugh at FIFA, and we all have a great time, and nothing changes. Why? Because this is not true satire. True satire is that which, at its core, implies the VIEWER THEMSELVES. When satire helps you realize that every individual bears some responsibility for what goes on in the world, only then can it motivate change, because it motivates the individual to change themselves. This is what The Focus Group aims to do.
