Truthdig columnist Lee Camp’s self-produced stand-up comedy special is dropping on quite an auspicious date: His “Super Patriotic Very Uncle Sam Comedy Special Not Allowed on American Television” (got that?) comes out this Tuesday— as in Election Day.

Ten percent of all video sales will go to environmental group Food and Water Watch and anti-war group Veterans for Peace.

To see more from Lee Camp, check out his appearance on the latest episode of Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer’s podcast, “Scheer Intelligence.”
