I can’t think of anyone I’d rather get a history lesson in comedy from other than J.B. Smoove. In
Funny My Way, Smoove—who you very well may know from playing one of the funniest characters on TV as Leon Black in
Curb Your Enthusiasm—takes listeners into the personal, professional, and political lives of six legendary Black comedians: Paul Mooney, Flip Wilson, Moms Mabley, Dick Gregory, Rudy Ray Moore, and Red Foxx, who, in their own ways, changed comedy and the culture as a whole. Told through a combination of Smoove’s narration, archival recordings, and commentary from other comedy greats—Cedric the Entertainer, Margaret Cho, and Norman Lear, to name a few—
Funny My Way is the ultimate listen for any and all true comedy fans.
