COMEDY IS THE NEW BLACK
Theres a difference between what people think black comedy is and what it actually happens to be. Its not 1992. More comedians are breaking out of the urban comedy mold now than ever, says Elon James White, founder of the Black Comedy Experiment Festival, a three-day showcase thats a combination of stand-up and sketch. Taking part are pros who have appeared on SNL, Chappelles Show, Def Comedy Jam, and Comedy Central. Expect some riffs on Black Jesus and what its like to be black and gay. (Hilarious, apparently!)
