In a deliberately absurd anachronism, "Trump" Atamanuik and "Bernie" Adomian engage in inter-party debates long before their parties' nominations are decided. Bernie continued throughout the election season as a city live comedy debate tour and spawned a special one-hour appearance on Comedy Central 's midnight , two hour-long specials produced for Fusion , and a comedy album released by Comedy Dynamics , along with numerous appearances on news and comedy programs, radio shows, and podcasts.
