Sam Ike is a Stand Up Comedian living in Boston and years ago in college he fell in love with the movie Hollywood Shuffle. The movie created and produced by Robert Townsend about being a minority trying to make it in the industry is unfortunately still VERY relevant today. This movie tackles tokenism and cancel culture way before its time. We all "loved-ed" it very much.   Support the show!
