What is Satire.

Satire is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

Example of Satire

Saturday Night Live uses satire in their show because they take modern issues and ridicule them.
