Sir-Jo – Sneaker Artist!

Maybe I need to get out more but this is the first Afro-Dutch accent I’ve ever heard.

I work monthly with the Second City’s REACH company.  It is pert of the theater’s long-standing commitment to developing diverse talent.  What I am getting from working with modern talent of color is that the limits for what audiences will accept as “black” are broader than ever.  Audiences do not expect ALL black comics to swear or tell tales of ‘da hood’ and sometimes groan at obvious, old “cp time” or basketball jokes.

The world is so  much odder and more interesting these days!
