ABOUT INDECISION

Comedy Central's Indecision is the network's digital hub for all things political comedy. The brand began on television as "Indecision '92," when comedian Al Franken covered President George H. W. Bush's State of the Union Address and the 1992 Democratic and Republican conventions in an unprecedented convergence of real news and real comedy. In 1999 The Daily Show with Jon Stewart adopted the Indecision brand for its trademark election coverage. This launched The Daily Show's wildly popular Indecision segments, which won a Peabody Award in 2004. Meanwhile, on the Internet, Comedy Central created Comedy Central's Indecision, an online destination for original political comedy and election coverage, in 2007. In 2011 Comedy Central's Indecision won the Webby Award for Best Political Blog, then expanded to the full-fledged digital enterprise you see now, including the website, daily blog, original video, apps and social media.
