Very funny material. Two great comedians. Two different shows. Race really shows through. George – just as bright and funny as Richard – gives us a glimpse into his imagination. Richard gives us a glimpse into his life, and how different they are from the men beside him.
The gift of reflective comedy is the stark truth.
At 22:30 into the video, Johnny and Richard share stories about being caught stealing as kids. Richard talks about how tough his father was with him – and gets laughs. Johnny describes how, when he got caught shoplifting, the store manager marched him down to his father’s office. Richard immediately asks, “Your father had an office?”
In that instant, you’re punched with the context of the two men’s lives.
