090 Pacoiz n the Hood W/ Arthur Hamilton

Comedian Arthur Hamilton joins me to talk about his upcoming special at the Skiptown Playhouse and growing up in Pacoima, CA. Of course, I interject historical context to black and Asian relations and the residential segregation of Los Angeles. We have a great talk about some of our early comedy experiences and Arthur tells me about how he was a banker in Arizona until he was caught with weed.

089 Democrats, Assemble!

There are more Democratic candidates than there are Avengers and beloved characters at Winterfell combined. So much is going on, but it’s hard to see what’s real and what’s fake anymore, especially when we’re in such a position of privilege to not worry about survival. Of course, we are all just one medical bill away from financial ruin in America, which makes it the best reality show of all- walking the tightrope between the haves and have-nothings. The Democrats have nothing to offer us except a spectacle that pales in comparison to the Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Battle of Winterfell in Game of Thrones. The public relates more to these fictional characters because they hold more truth to their actions than the bullshitters in politics.

088 Virginia Is For Druggies w/ Steven Belkowski

Joining me on this episode is Steven Belkowski (@belswagski), a comic I met in the open mic scene in LA who is a traveler both physically and psychedelically. We talked about his experience as a military brat growing up in Indonesia as a right wing Catholic lad, similar to the Covington kids! He would have definitely rocked the MAGA hat to town some libs back in his day. However, moving to Virginia changed all that and once he saw how people struggled his heart began to grow like the Grinch, and he turned to the psychedelic realm to open his mind.

087 Molestery Industrial Complex

LA is a vampire. Plain and simple. It sucks the water from it’s neighbors in order to sustain a manufactured metropolis in the desert. And I’m ALL IN, BABY!!!

This week I am taking a stand for the children, especially child actors. They are the broken by-product of a billion dollar system that seems to exist purely for entertainment at best and an institutionalized safe-haven for pedophiles. The only thing is, it’s never going to happen. Kids will always be part of the entertainment industry, and they will be touched if not by some scumbag, then at least the darkness.

I take a look at the upcoming movie, Little, and I wonder why this movie was even made. It seems like a vehicle for rationalizing the sexualization of a child by making the plot about a middle-aged woman’s mind inside the body of a 13 year old. Yikes. Haven’t they been watching all the documentaries that have been coming out?

086 Planet Blak and Yellow w/ Niles Abston

My guest this episode is comedian Niles Abston, who has an animated project he’s working on called, Planet Blak, a stoner sci-fi comedy about a young black man who’s been recruited to sell weed for aliens. We discussed how he was inspired by the harsh drug laws of his home state of Mississippi and then we have a great conversation about the War on Drugs, America’s history of war in Asia, Black and Korean relations, and how despite the differences between people, most of us are our here just struggling to survive. We are actually more unified than separate, sometimes. There are no real answers here, just two comics asking questions and making white people uncomfortable.
