Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

Good One: A Podcast About Jokes is a podcast about - well - jokes, and the people who tell them. Each week, a comedian will play one of their jokes and then break it down with Senior Editor Jesse David Fox.


episode 5: Roy Wood Jr.'s Black Patriotism (Rerun)

In 2017, Jesse recorded a live episode of Good One with Roy Wood Jr. at the Just For Laughs Festival in Toronto.

The bit that they discussed was "Black Patriotism?", from Roy's 2017 special Father Figure.

Roy reveals the staggering amount of live comedy he watches in order to ensure his material is truly his own. He's a brilliant comedic strategist who understands that for a joke to truly be funny, it needs to be funny everywhere--even in front of the people it pokes fun at.

Also included: Roy recounts working with Ron Jeremy.

Watch Roy's latest special No One Loves You on Comedy Central.
