6 times that Jon Stewart’s politics comedy ‘Irresistible’ has a Wisconsin accent

At the end of the credits, Stewart thanks Rockport and Polk County, in Georgia, and Kathy Cramer. The former were the locations where “Irresistible” was filmed. Cramer is the University of Wisconsin-Madison political science professor whose 2016 book “The Politics of Resentment” explored the role of disaffected rural voters in Wisconsin’s shift to the right. In 2017, Stewart reached out to Cramer, spending a day with her in Wisconsin, visiting some of the places and people she visited while researching her book.
