Rep. Adam Schiff Dabbles in Stand-Up Comedy, Rips CNN for Trump Town Hall

Congressman Adam Schiff tries his hand at live stand-up comedy once a year … but he sees nothing funny about how CNN set up Donald Trump‘s town hall for a national audience.

The distinguished gentleman from Burbank, CA joined us Thursday on “TMZ Live” and we asked him about his upcoming comedy set in L.A.’s famed Comedy Store.

Schiff, who’s running for U.S. Senate, is hosting a fundraiser Friday at the famous West Hollywood venue — and while he’ll mostly be introducing professional comics, he says he likes to mix in a few jokes of his own.

As Adam explains, he’s performed full stand-up acts at his annual fundraiser in the past — usually writing his own jokes during the cross-country flight — and he let us in on some of his favorite material.

All jokes aside, Adam’s not only eyeing the Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Dianne Feinstein … he’s also paying attention to Trump’s presidential campaign.

Rep. Schiff ripped CNN for this month’s town hall with the former President — although, he doesn’t take issue with CNN holding the event, he strongly objects to one thing about the spectacle … comparing it to a reality TV show.
