Episode #179 The wonderful Ava Vidal (http://www.avavidal.co.uk/) joins Citizen Radio to discuss sexism, racism, and homophobia in comedy. Ava also talks about the importance of speaking up when one witnesses injustice.
She brings a unique perspective to the comedy world. A mother of two, and a former prison guard, Ava works in a thoroughly male-dominated industry. Today, she offers some words of advice to machismo comedians who make it their business to bully and belittle vulnerable minorities on stage.
Later, Jamie and Allison answer more of your Listener Mail! Your questions/comments this week concern fleeing the country, and finding volunteers to help Billy Kennedy defeat crazy, crazy Virginia Fox (interested parties should call 336-724-5941 for information.)
Also, look for a very special guest appearance from Drunken Uganda.
