Lately, the worlds of comedy and global politics have been practically indistinguishable. A speech from Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong-Un has more laughs (bleak, bleak laughs) than an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, and a Seth Rogen comedy has more political repercussions than a G20 summit. Well if there’s one person who epitomises the marriage between dictatorship and comedy more than anyone – forget about Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator – it’s Mike Myers’ Dr. Evil.
On last episode of SNL for the year, Myers brought back his legendary evil alter-ego for a much needed weigh-in on the whole North Korea mess, and the results are hilarious. Dr. Evil really puts things in perspective for us when he compares the North Korean attack on Sony to “two bald men fighting over a comb.”
