This week’s TCB Field Report welcomes comedian/writer/actor/social media prankster extraordinaire (and one of our longtime favorites) Yassir Lester to go over the continually rocky times that we and comedy are going through.
That includes making some much needed updates with animated characters of yesteryear, SXSW, one of the world’s biggest festivals, doing their entire program virtually (with comedy clubs around the country offering SXSW exclusive streamed performances), how virtual writers’ room might be a little bit better than the in-person equivalent, and how he is totally fine with waiting to perform live and in person whenever that’s completely safe to do (and how other folks comedy should be too).
