Ep05. Race, Faith, & Comedy, Jonathan Braylock

“Comedy can teach us to let go a little bit and think about things in a new way, allow God to change us so we’re not stuck in one setting. I do that specifically with race right now.”

I talked with comedian and actor Jonathan Braylock, cohost of the excellent Black Men Can't Jump (in Hollywood) Podcast. We discuss the podcast, the diversity problem in Hollywood, why representation matters, trends and tropes in movies with Black leads. We also talk about his faith, comedy, and what a good laugh can teach the life of faith. And loads of other good stuff.
