Ukrainian Comics Set Up Satirical Party

A popular Ukrainian comedy group has unveiled plans to set up a comic party, in an apparent bid to make fun of the country’s politicians, the UNIAN news agency reported Friday. “We thought that if professional politicians today look like clowns, why can’t professional clowns become politicians?” the Maski Show group’s artistic director and actor Georgy Deliyev said. The idea to set up the Satirical-Democratic Party (SDPU) came to him after he visited a local hospital, Deliyev said. The group first planned to name the party as The Most Foolish Party of Ukraine, but they later changed their mind, saying “other parties could have been offended.”
