Aided in large part by the success of improvisational stage troupes, liberal satire during the Kennedy years reached new levels of popularity. Even political satire, once held at bay by the conservative cold war culture of the 1950s, appeared to rebound in this period. This chapter focuses on the type of political satire that flourished during the “satire boom” of the early 1960s.
