Summary
The humor of African-American life is inextricably tied to the humor on the African-American stage, its character shaped by the contradictions of being Black and Bewildered and Bothered in the New World. It is a humor that breathes sanity and humanity in the midst of profound circumstances. To find logic in this existence is at the heart of the African-American comic odyssey
