Sounds like a Bill Maher trick

In the 2013 email, Craig Minassian, the foundation’s Chief Communications Officer, said he had the comedy show produce two skits about the Clinton Global Initiative which promoted positive aspects of the Clinton Foundation.“John, I hope you got a chance to see The Colbert Report‘s two special episodes I had them do about CGI University that we taped in St. Louis this weekend,” wrote Minassian. “This is the link to last night’s with a sketch about commitments and the monologue and WJC [Bill Clinton] interview aired Monday.”“Hope you enjoy and looking forward to your feedback. Next will be your Colbert appearance!”
The trick works when your audience thinks Doonesbury cartoons is a major classic. 

From now one their audiences will check their funny bone in at the door. They have to figure out, for each joke; is this next joke a Lib commercial, or a true funny.
