Unlicensed Therapy w/ Ari Mannis

Today on Unlicensed Therapy I am joined by comedian Ron Taylor. Ron started pursuing comedy in his hometown of Detroit and shares with us how the inception of comedian came to be. In 2009 he started watching stand up clips on Youtube and researching comics without realizing there was a whole business behind comedy. Upon finding a Dave Chappelle clip where he states that being funny is a marketable skill Ron immediately switched his major from engineering to theatre art and got to work into learning everything comedy.On this episode Ron give us some insight on doing comedy in Detroit, a city he considers to be the only bottom top tier black city, being a place with no pipeline into Hollywood unlike its counterpart cities Chicago and Atlanta. The only avenue into Hollywood from Detroit is to get out of Detroit. While in Detroit Ron reveals to us how his 1of 2 DUI’s came to be and how not even a lawyer would keep him from experiencing the disparity in sentencing from the strictest judge in Michigan. 30 days followed by 1-year probation was the final verdict. While spending those days in jail Ron learns that most inmates shared a common thread other than being black, all were over sentenced by petty “crimes”.  Knowing that parking tickets, domestic disputes, and even child support could land you days to months in jail came the realization that black oppression is the fuel source of America. In a country where there must be a group of people as #2 in order for there to be a group of people to feel superior comes the idea that their fuel source is lives off of repression and possibly the only way to change that is to replace that source. So how do you change that?
