NEW PODCAST: “You Can’t Say That On Television!”

You-Can't-Say-That-On-Television

“You Can’t Say That On Television” is the second installment of our series about stand-up comedy. In the first episode, Bronwyn and I traced the origins of stand-up performance theater back to England, the legend of “blue” content, Arthur Askey up to Bob Hope and Jack Benny (the first entertainers to create fictionalized versions of themselves in sitcoms). From there, we move on to modern stand-up, represented by Lenny Bruce.

In our second episode on the subject, we discuss Richard Pryor and George Carlin and their influence on the stand-up comedy we’re all familiar with these days. Be warned, this episode contains coarse, vulgar, lewd, crude, lascivious, vile, suggestive, and off-color language.
