July 8: Lee Camp

Lee Camp is that rare breed of political comic who can actually make you laugh rather than just sit there nodding in agreement with the odd chuckle. It's even more surprising given he's also a political activist, who aren't exactly known for their sense of humour. The American stand-up comic was in town a few weeks ago headlining Yuk Yuk's and agreed to sit down and record an episode with me. I first heard of Camp while reading Paul Provenza's ¡Satiristas!: Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians, in which a chapter was devoted to him. We talked about which came first: the comedy or the activism; how a military father takes to having such a rabble-rouser for a son; and which descriptor of Provenza's book's subtitle fits him best, among other things.

As always, we'll air the interview on the radio tonight and it'll be available in podcast form next Sunday. That's how we roll. So tune in to 102.7 FM in Vancouver tonight at 11 PST, livestream it at, or wait a week and download it on iTunes.
