As the upcoming 2012 Presidential election season unfolds against the backdrop of the growing dissent of Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party movements, Jimmy Tingle has constructed another hilarious, thought provoking and politically charged one-man show based on his 2012 run for the presidency. As the founder of the "Humor for Humanity" party, Tingle is running on his comedic record. The campaign underlines his passion and creative thinking on every issue the next president must grapple with from alternative energy to immigration to jobs and the national debt. Despite the seriousness of the issues confronting America and the world, Jimmy Tingle for President is The Funniest Campaign in History.
