Headzup: The Citizentube Interview

If you like your political humor short and to the point, then chances are you're familiar with Headzup. A partnership between businessman John Shay and animator/comedian Matthew Filipowicz, Headzup is a daily animated web show focusing on politics and current events. With over 450 videos on their YouTube channel, most of which are under thirty seconds, they've developed a biting style of satire all their own. Whether spoofing Hillary Clinton's Bosnia trip or having John McCain perform a rap song, Headzup is quite literally putting a new face to an old genre.

John and Matthew (who live in Seattle and Chicago, respectively) sat down to answer some questions for Citizentube about Headzup and the brave new world of political satire.
