Laugh Out Loud Cultural Comedy

Making jokes about race and culture is not easy. In fact, it often falls flat. At the same time, for those of us living in diverse environments, sharp and amusing observations can be a delightful gift.

This is how I felt when I came across this clip from Last Comic Standing (thank you, Mash-Up Americans.) I shared it on my Facebook page a while back, but we are still talking about it, so I thought I'd post it here. (Head's up, there's a little bit of inappropriateness.)

Naturally, I have since been stalking Ryan Conner online. Billy and I also watched this video, and the story of him in CVS had me crying just a little bit. So there you go.

I don't watch Last Comic Standing, so I have no idea how he's doing. But I have watched this clip a gazillion times, and a friend recently texted me about our toddlers' shared love of lotion. "Hey," she reminded me. "We're all fighting the War on Ashy."
