Lionel on House of Cards Season Four
Netflix Season 4: Episode 11: Chapter 50
Lionel, as talk show host, interviews FLOTUS Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) as to POTUS Frank and FU2016.
Lionel is “[a]n intellectual known for his irreverent political and social humor.” (Newsweek)
“He wears the mantle of Lenny Bruce, with Lenny’s own tropisms: The Oblique, The Irreverent, The Tangential, The Concupiscent, The Polymorphous Perverse, The Arcane, The Numinous. And yet Lionel brings to the table his own savory: A love of the mother tongue and a gonzo vocabulary that puts his logo on all his works, whether talk-show hosting, standup-comic spritzing, or hanging out – with himself a minor art form.” (Jerry Wexler)
