In the fashion of NBC's Saturday Night Life, MSNBC has produced their own comedy shtick called Morning Joe with hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski.
Morning Joe's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski
The main entertainer is politician Republican co-host and name sake of the show, Joe Scarborough. Dressed in collegiate clothing with large horn rimmed black glasses, Scarborough's routine is to act as a hyperactive adult continuing to interrupt co-host Mika with one liners to the array of regular co-hosts guests circled around the table drinking Starbuck's cofee.
Then as on cue, he gets serious and embraces the Republican Party and reminds despite his staged antics he is a conservative.
Scarborough's straight person in this shtick is Mika Brezinski.
Mika is impeccably dressed with the most stylish of clothes often times with draping scarves and to appear even more chique often with a pair of sunglasses cleverly perched on her hair. (Never understood sunglasses in a studio!)
Unabashedly a high brow NYC liberal with a liberal pedigree, as on cue, she rolls her eyes and feigns impatience with the staged antics of her attention deficit disorder co-host.
Both Brezinski and Scarborough love to drop names and appear to have some ongoing relationship with fellow New Yorker Donald Trump. Mika poses "tough" questions to her guests and acts like she is listening. With her self righteous fullness of herself, she offers commentary against all people she deems contrary to her views with shrugs and rolling eyes,
