I think the comedians' problem with Corbyn is that he's taken away their reasons for being. How can you satirise somebody who is already a walking parody of the stereotypical Student Union socialist? They'd have to go down a darker, less amusing road. He could always be depicted surrounded by the skeletons of the victims of IRA, Hizbollah and Hamas atrocities. Accurate, but hardly comical. Comedians want you to laugh at the objects of their satire, not hate them.
