Comedian Hannibal Buress interviews PETA protesters

The movie Hammer and Tickle proposed an interesting idea that one cultural aspect that lead to the demise of the Soviet Union was, of all things, the joke. Essentially, as The Prospect points out, communism laid the ground work to contribute to its own international brand of comedy.

Comedian Hannibal Buress decided to interview some animal rights protesters at a circus in Los Angeles as part of his new Comedy Central show Why. The result is a hysterical exchange between Burress and the protesters.
