Feb. 23: Kwasi Thomas
It's a snow day so why not stay in, make some hot chocolate, and listen to What's So Funny? tonight. I met Kwasi Thomas last week. We talked over a beer as I interviewed him for a story I did in the Georgia Straight about the Underground Comedy Railroad Tour he was a part of. He was such an engaging guy, I asked him to join us on the show tonight. The tour paid a whistle-stop at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver last night so we'll find out how it went. We'll talk about what it means to be a black comic in the Great White North. We'll also ask how the Montreal anglo native is adjusting to west coast living. He must be loving the snow.
You can find us tonight from 11 pm to midnight on CFRO 100.5 FM in Vancouver. Or livestream us online at coopradio.org.
