From the Chappelle's Show, comic Christian Finnegan, on White people talking about race onstage, on t.v., and in life, Ep. 117

Ep. 117: Christian is the creator and co-host of Black & White, a comedy show that aired on A&E. On the show, Christian and co-host Sherrod Small, examined current events and social trends through the lens of Race. Christian is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and as Chad, the only white roommate in Chappelle’s Show’s infamous “Mad Real World” sketch. He played Martin on the popular syndicated sitcom Are We There Yet? and politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”. Over the past decade, Christian Finnegan has been a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one hour stand up special “Au Contraire!”, as well as “Comedy Central Presents”, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and countless network interstitials. He’s also appeared on “Conan”, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Good Afternoon America” and “The Today Show”. Christian’s latest comedy special, “The Fun Part” was released on Netflix in April 2014. It’s available on iTunes and Amazon, along with his first two albums, “Two for Flinching” and “Au Contraire!”. Listen as Christian speaks with Alex about his life, his work, and about the perspective of being a White man in a majority Black cast and what it led him to understand about race and racism.
