I like Gary Owens.  He has stated on the TJMS several times that his father and several of his relatives are rednecks.   I think he get his comedy break at a black comedy club.  He has been a huge supporter of the Tom Joyner Scholarship Foundation.

J1908,

Reading is definitely fundamental and I surely understand what you are saying but I just found this topic to make my point because a lot of blacks don't like his comedy and think because he is married to a black woman he still does not have the right to joke about it but black comedians and the tom joyner morning show can talk about whites or how the white coach benched the black quarterback in DC (McNabb) or other black and white issues that a white radio host or white comedian would be fired for doing.  Trust me J, with the wars, and recession and tea party there are plenty of things on earth to get upset about, letting T. Hall "IRK" you, I'm not worth the energy.  Angel


We have double standards and he is the only one that can get away with our standards, we can talk about white folks all the time in our comedy routine but when white folks talk about us they are racist, you never hear white comedians talk about blacks because we would have an uproar but we can talk about their dance and cooking and food and their talk and the rednecks; double standard!
Why did you just irk the L out of me? What I asked has nothing to do with racism. I said I was tired of his black jokes, which isn't the same. He talks about his family in all his routine and it's not funny to me anymore. READING  IS FUNDAMENTAL!!!!

I've heard him a few times before. He's okay, surely nothing to write home about.

Black comedy is dead, or on serious life support.
