Funny or Die Hires Obama’s Former Speech Writer David Litt as Head Writer and Producer at FoD’s Washington D.C. Office

(via Variety)

Funny or Die is getting very serious about their content in this election year.

David Litt was not only President Barack Obama’s speech writer, but acted as a lead writer at the last four of Obama’s hit White House Correspondents Association Dinner performances where people consistently were amazed of how funny Obama was (sometimes, more so than the host who is actually a comedian).

So, being one of the lead creatives in heading writing and production at Funny or Die’s Washington D.C. offices is a good move on Funny or Die’s part.
