( -- Democratic congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.), who has rather dramatic eyes and a fixed gaze, is perfect fodder for humor, said comedian and talk-radio host Joe Piscopo at the Media Research Center's 30th anniversary gala on Thursday, but the political left has "no sense of humor," he added, which led Piscopo to immediately impersonate Schiff, who he described as a character from the movie "Children of the Damned."

"The left has no sense of humor," said Piscopo. "I don’t understand it. There’s impressions of Donald Trump. There’s impressions of everybody else."

"You know, how do you let, like [Democratic congressman] Adam Schiff, how does this guy, Congressman Schiff, with the eyes, no one’s doing this guy," said the comedian.

"He’s like ‘Children of the Damned,’ this guy," said Piscopo. "‘Ooooooooo. Don’t look at him, don’t look at him, you’ll like Nancy Pelosi. Do not look at his eyes. Oooooooo.’"

"No one’s making fun of Adam Schiff," he said. 

The MRC's 30th anniversary gala was held at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 21.
