    This election season, the Rialto has the debate that everyone wants to see — Trump vs. Bernie, featuring comedians Anthony Atamanuik as that short-fingered vulgarian Donald “The Donald” Trump, and James Adomian as everyone’s favorite Larry David impersonator, Bernie Sanders. Bring a mop, because your sides will burst with explosive laughter, guaranteed.*
