Un-Redacted: Activist comedian Lee Camp and his news show, Redacted Tonight use comedy to uncover the truth by covering all the stories you won’t see in either comedy or on the news.

On one end of the spectrum, we have “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” which offer a temporary reprieve from the lunacy of the 24/7 news cycle.
