What a run. @patriotact has come to an end. I got the chance to work with the best writers, producers, researchers, and animators in the game. My 2 babies were born and grew up with the show. It’s a time I’ll never forget. Thank you to @Netflix and everyone who watched. I’ll miss the show, but I hear there’s a British guy who has one that is quite similar 😎
Over 39 episodes, Patriot Act focused on topical political and cultural affairs such as George Floyd‘s death, the COVID 19 pandemic and shortfalls of legalising marijuana. During it’s run, the show amassed an Emmy Award for Outstanding Motion Design; two Webby Awards for Special Achievements and one for Deep Cuts, a series of behind-the-scenes videos released on YouTube between seasons in which the comedian interacts with and answers the questions from the audience; and a Peabody Award.
