My Thoughts: Although I was familiar with this guy and knew of his show, I had never seen it and had never heard him talk or do stand-up before. Overall it was an entertaining way to spend three hours at work. Didn’t get too much into race like I thought it would. Lots of talk about boxing, movies and actors, and San Francisco.
