Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, and Moby join Laughter Trumps Hate

Big news: an all-star crew of judges has joined MoveOn's comedy competition to defeat Donald Trump

Dear MoveOn Member,

Big News: Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, Negin Farsad, Aasif Mandvi, Karine Jean-Pierre, Baratunde Thurston, and Moby will serve as judges in MoveOn's "Laughter Trumps Hate" comedy contest! And there's just one week left for comedians from around the country to submit their short video and help defeat Donald Trump! (Just click here to get started or learn more.)

Laughter Trumps Hate is part of our broader United Against Hate campaign to make sure Donald Trump never reaches the White House. It's a nationwide competition to find the funniest comedians who can harness the power of humor to challenge Donald Trump, the GOP's politics of hate, and the pressing issues of bigotry and bullying.

If you are (or know!) a professional or amateur comedian, check out the Laughter Trumps Hate contest website and enter by August 17 for a chance to be seen by these entertainment legends.

Whether you're a seasoned vet or just starting your comedy career, all performers are welcome to enter the competition, doing stand-up, sketch, or impressions. Our panel of comedy pros will select winners, along with an online vote on the crowd favorite.

Click here to check out the Laughter Trumps Hate website and rules and submit your entry.

Thanks for all you do.

—Ben O., Tzyh, Nik, Anna, and the rest of the team
