Before Jon Stewart

Prior to the assassination, Jack and Jackie Kennedy were skewered by the popular comedians of their time, although the political satire was much more gentle then. In 1962, the parody record "First Family" became the fastest-selling album in US history. On it, impersonator Vaughn Meader showed off his well-practiced Massachusetts accent and lampooned the first lady and life in the White House. Soon, Americans across the country knew it by heart.
