This podcast episode sheds light on how the media and the comedy industry treat and portray Black comedians. We’ll hear from a stand-up comedian from Edmonton, Sterling Scott. Using his own personal experiences and observations, Scott provides valuable insight on some of the struggles that Black comedians have to face. Some of the concepts he discusses are the “Black quota”, the media’s role in denying shared Black excellence in comedy, and the prevalence of systemic racism amongst audiences in Alberta.
