Writer, actor, director and standup comedian Mike Binder
recently penned an article asking the rhetorical question: why has
the standup industry been so thoroughly de-fanged in recent years
to become so thoroughly pro-establishment? Gone is the bravery of
Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and George Carlin, he says, as comedic
voices of dissent today have become the exception and can be
numbered on one hand.
Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to Binder about the state of comedy, and the few truth-tellers who have been willing to push back against the COVID narrative in particular.
Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Chris Christie and Vince Vaughn!
