Acting Stereotypes

This is a great piece by Ahmed Ahmed.
He is one of the original members of the Axis of Evil
Comedy Tour that hit the circuit back in 2005.
He actually founded the tour to use comedy as a weapon
to combat the negative stereotyping that middle easterners
have to contend with in America on a daily basis.
The comics that he brought together were a very talented
group…Aron Kader, Dean Obeidallah, Maz Jobrani,
and Ahmed himself make up the four original members of
the tour.
I play this piece on the show, it’s a smart set, makes you think…


Comedy 101 Radio Playlist 6.20.19

Graduation and the beginning of Summer
dominate the programming for this week’s show.
Of course the classic piece by Daniel Tosh was a
good choice, as was the Dave Cash oration.
Absolutely hilarious material by Tommy Ryman
and Kellen Erskine, two of my favorite stand-up
comedians at the moment.
Kellen is very quickly becoming my first choice
to create a laugh when needed, he’s a very smart
comic with a deadpan style all his own.
An old favorite from Uncle Shelby, one of his best.
Mall block, cat block, cinder block.
All with a keen eye set on the upcoming Summer
festivities, see you on the lake, I’m the guy with
the blue kayak and the smile on his face…

The Graduation Song

Rhett & Link with an ode to those that have
spent the last twelve to fifteen years trying
to make it through the school system.
It’s meant to be humorous, but it does bring
a bit of anxiety to the table, knowing that there
WILL be obstacles.
Like college, for one!
Still, there will be many times where the
overwhelming urge to lock yourself in the garage
with the car running will subside and you may
actually even enjoy your lot in life.
Until the next life changing dilemma of course.
These guys have it pegged…
