Makes me laugh, makes me learn, inspires me, and opens my mind. Thank you, Larry. I am a white, middle-aged female and I think you are funny as hell! Keep bringing us all together through your honesty, comedy, and conversations.

He says “you guys” way too much. His guests are just his friends that agree with him. And he gets a raging hard-on for Trump every and I do mean every podcast opening. Pass on this nonsense.

Best Episode Yet

Dear Larry,This was a great podcast. Sabrina was one of my favorite shows growing up. Just to add clarity on the topic of black writers in the comedy late-nite world... I interned at one of the shows mentioned. Zero black writers, but the crew was great when they weren’t confusing me for the other black intern. Probably happens in a lot of offices but this was a big impact on my career path. I appreciated the opportunity to be on one of the biggest shows on Comedy Central at the time but the only people of color I see were IT or Exec. Assistants and I lost a lot of focus trying to break into that world.

Like a lot of his fans, I was very disappointed when Larry’s show was canceled. Now, I am very excited to hear him again on his own podcast.

I was bummed when Larry’s show got cancelled. I just recently got into podcasts and his was recommended based on my other selections. This 67 y/o white, Midwesterner is now joyfully catching up on what my brother has been doing now that the M-Fer has been convicted. Rock on!

Love Larry!

Love this show. This podcast is SO much better than a 20-minute TV show, broken into 5-minute segments! Now we can actually hear detailed real and valuable insights, one guest at a time.Keep up the great job, Larry!Love you man. ❤️

I haven’t forgotten about you, Larry!

Four stars instead of five because of too much talking about basketball. It’s great to have Larry back! Larry takes a topic to a fair depth be it social commentary or something lighter. Well worth listening to on a regular basis.

Larry Wilmore is great, I love listening to him. I missed The Nightly Show, glad to get these podcasts. He brings a black man’s point of view to current politics, adding context and backstory for a wider perspective and a deeper understanding of today’s news. But he does it with big humor, he’s very funny. It’s an excellent pod. He’s a superb interviewer too, doesn’t make it about him, lets his guests get their message out.

You guys...

Larry Wilmore is one of the best (if not the best) interviewers in the game. He actually LISTENS to the people he is interviewing, he's smart, witty, and funny as hell. What more could you want? I love this podcast.

I don’t know Mr. Wilmore’s schedule, but this podcast isn’t updated very much. It doesn’t have to be done daily, but once a week would be good.

Larry is just too good

by jupauls on Mar 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

This is my favorite podcast! Not because it’s the first I listen to, in fact sometimes I’m a few weeks behind. Every time I listen I am amazed by how wide of net Larry’s knowledge and conceptualization casts. It makes me jealous. I would have never thought I would like a Forrest Whitaker interview but because Larry is so well versed he could relate to many deep issues as an interviewer that he knew he would connect to the deeper side of Forrest. Thanks Larry for the hang. Epilogue: My favorite episode was the one with Dan Rather.

Incisive, intelligent, funny & friendly

It’s so great, having Larry W. on the airwaves again, after the sudden, lousy cancellation of his NIGHTLY SHOW. One good thing is, in some ways, I enjoy this podcast even more. I listen to every episode, and wait impatiently when they take a break. It’s like visiting with a good friend, and one who introduces us to such interesting guests, with lively conversation. Larry even makes me interested when he talks about sports. I was kind of in heaven when he announced Malcolm Gladwell as guest—my two favorite podcasters (and two of the greatest, most thoughtful guys in the public eye today) together! Bravo and thanks, Larry! (Yes, in my mind, we’re on a first-name basis.)

Love Larry!

I should have watched the Nightly Show

by Ryan StoveTop on Jan 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Life’s all about mistakes. I made a huge one by not watching and supporting the Nightly Show when Larry was on Comedy Central headlining his own show.Larry gives such insightful opinions on the stories at hand, offering a comedic and critical analysis. He goes over the line with his comparisons and analogies, which is the job of a comedian. To take risks and say the things everyone is thinking, but don’t have the courage to let out.Thank you for holding it down Mr. Wilmore and Go Lakers!

What else could you expect from one of the funniest and smartest people ever? He has great insight into many issues affecting ALL of us, including this 66-year old white woman. The conversations with his guests are always intelligent and stimulating with humor and wry observations. I'm forever grateful for The Bernie Mac Show. Thanks for the great podcast and all the great stuff you do 👏

Takes up where his TV show left off

by North Jersey Rock Fan on Jan 01, 2018
Rating: ★★★★☆

I really feel that if they had given Larry’s TV show 6 more months it would have a large following now. But this is great - he gives good commentary at the beginning of an episode that doesn’t necessarily need to go for the joke (but often makes me laugh out loud). My complaint is it is not consistently coming out - I’ve wondered “was it cancelled”? Actually I’ve got too many podcasts saved already so why am I complaining?

I stopped listening to this show because I cannot stand how Larry refers to everyone as “guys”.Guess what Larry - more than half of your listeners don’t identify as “guys” - so your language around this is pretty sexist and thoughtless. It’s 2018 - wake up Larry.

Old School/New School

by saddlebomb9 on Dec 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Larry says it himself, he loves old school and podcast is just the modern version of old radio programing. And I can only see podcasting becoming more popular with time due to 1. access is more conveinent that TV, 2. it is more affordable to produce. 3. People need more mental stimulation than visual. Exciting to have him back out sharing issues and views that the public is concerned about and trying to figure out. Podcasting is a wonderful medium for his humor and content as he uses inflection and metaphore with most his humor and expression on issues, both audio based. Look forward to years of listening to great discussions and realistic views on what the country/world needs to be looking at. Thank you for the quality along with the entertainment.

I came to Mr. Wilmore's show on Comedy Central late.However, I quickly got into it and couldn't get enough; shortly thereafter,however,the show was cancelled to my dismay. In any event, I was happy when Larry resurfaced with his candid discussions, filled with his trademark humor, and eclectic subject matters and guest. I listen to a number of podcast, and Black on the Air is easily one of my top 3.

Larry is so insightful and had such a wonderful sense of humor. Some of the guests, I’ve never heard of before but I end up being a huge fan by the end of the show. Larry has such a soothing voice and my only complaint is that he needs to create more episodes more often. I need more Larry!

We love Larry. The podcast is great, but I have one criticism. It's very self indulgent. We all want to hear Larry's opinions and he has some great guests, but what we REALLY love is his comedy. Insider info about how comedy is made is about as exciting as watching grass grow. More comedy! Less analysis. Please?
