Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Comedy Central

Date: April 2010

Duration: 1 hours 13 minutes


Written and directed by Victor Varnado and set to the music of cutting-edge hip-hop artist Farbeon, The Awkward Comedy Show showcases the talents of four groundbreaking African-American comedians. Comic Marina Franklin interviews the featured comedians, whose ranks include alternative stand-up artists Victor Varnado, Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre and Baron Vaughn. ... The film captures their antics on and off the stage through group hang-out sessions, informal interviews and personal vignettes animated by underground comic book artists. While the comedians each have their own wacky style, they all have two things in common: they're all a little weird, and they all challenge our preconceptions of what black comedy is and can be. Riffing on topics ranging from Shakespeare to science fiction, The Awkward Comedy Show inject black comedy with a fresh--and nerdy--new style.
