President-Elect Obama isn’t a funny guy. In fact he’s a bit of an egghead without being all Al Gore about it.
I realize it is difficult to make him funny because he doesn’t really have any mannerisms, habits or personal qualities which are ripe for parody. For the purposes of comedy, Obama is as dry as yesterday’s toast.
Make President Obama into a reactor to all the foolishness which happens around him. Put your proxy in ridiculous situations and let him react as a relatable victim. Jack Benny, Bud Abbot and so forth.
