The Kruiser Kabana Episode 47: Comedian Kevin Downey Jr. on the Post-COVID Future of Stand-Up

In Part II of my interview with my friend Kevin Downey Jr. we explore what the stand-up comedy scene might look like as we try to return to whatever normal will be now. We focused on performance venues and 21st-century ways of getting our material out there. One thing we didn’t discuss that I would like to have Kevin back to talk about is what the politically correct speech and thought police are doing to stand-up. It’s a subject that has been on my mind a lot these past few weeks especially. There is a concerted effort to sanitize comedy, which I really believe will lead to its ruin.

We also spend some time talking about how ridiculous we were when we were doing a tour of the South Pacific to entertain U.S. troops. Ah…memories.

Keep up with what Kevin is doing by following him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
