Godfrey and Maz Jobrani are two comedians who talk a lot. But since they're very funny, there's nothing wrong with that.
They spoke with Mutsumi Takahashi in the CTV Montreal studio about their show Ethnical Difficulties and the problems they have being comedians, and non-white, in the Western World.
Meanwhile Christine Long chatted with the two comedians who plan to light up the stage at one of the nine Just for Laughs Ethnic Show: Ethnical Difficulties performances.
Godfrey was clearly in a good mood after getting two standing ovations, in spite of cracking wise in English to a French-speaking audience the night prior.
He is joined at the show by Maz Jobrani, an American who has admitted that his Iranian-American parents didn’t fully understand his decision to quit university for standup comedy.
Four other cut-ups are expected to traipse gently into the world of ethnic stereotyping in their quest for laughs.
