Ep. 05: Alt Comedy and Def Comedy
As the comedy club boom goes bust, standups adapt to this new reality. A DIY ethic emerges and spreads from coast to coast as more and more comedians take control of their own destinies. Meanwhile, FOX helps usher in a golden era for African-American comics. This is episode 5 of a 6-part series featuring interviews with comedians Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, Tig Notaro, and journalist Julie Seabaugh.
The History of Standup is produced by The Podglomerate.
