Venezuelan Humorist Engages Kidnappers In Election Dialogue

NPR | April 12, 2013 10:18 a.m.

A not-so-funny thing happened earlier this week to Venezuelan humorist Laureano Marquez. He was kidnapped just before a scheduled interview with NPR. Marquez was released unharmed, and tells Morning Edition’s Steve Inskeep about his ordeal, and about life and politics in Caracas ahead of Sunday’s presidential election. Marquez wants Venezuelans to set aside their differences and find a new path as the country picks a replacement for the late Hugo Chavez.
