#600 Best Of - Baron Vaughn

Mental Illness Happy Hour

Originally aired in 2013, the actor/comedian (Conan, Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central) talks about his struggle to feel “authentically black” without betraying who he is, the state of comedy in the black community, honing his artistic voice, and his nerdish, turbulent childhood especially with his alcoholic mother.

Cop-a-ganda with Baron Vaughn & Alex Vitale

The Bitchuation Room

When the bias trainings, body cams, and oversight doesn’t work, it’s time to defund the police. Maybe even time think about why we ever needed police in the first place? Gasp! Professor Alex Vitale breaks down why the connection between austerity politics of cities and the policing of the poor, and why the left should focus on Democratic governors and mayors as well as Republican lawmakers. Speaking of which, Governor Andrew Cuomo is exactly the New York machista he appears to be on television, CPAC is still a political freak circus, and Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t understand gender but is obsessed with your genitalia. Comedian and actor Baron Vaughn joins Francesca for some slapdash Cuomo brothers impersonations and belly laughs.  Featuring: Baron Vaughn, comedian & actor: https://twitter.com/barvonblaq Alex Vitale, Professor of Sociology: https://twitter.com/avitale Buy Alex’s book, The End of Policing: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1784782890/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_-TeYzbNSTMN3V And your host, Francesca Fiorentini https://twitter.com/franifio ----Join the Franita and become a Patron today: www.patreon.com/bitchuationroom Follow The Bitchuation Room on Twitter @BitchuationPod Thanks to producer Rebecca Rufer, and post production team Kelly Carey & Dorsey Shaw. Music Credits: The Cannery by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4485-the-cannery License: https://filmmusic.io/standard-license Hosted on Acast.

EP9: Actor and Comedian, Baron Vaughn

The Stress Sessions

I've been so BLOODY EXCITED to share this episode of The Stress Sessions with you since I recorded it... and here it is!This week, I'm chatting to US-based actor and comedian, Baron Vaughn, who recently starred in the hilarious Netflix series 'Superstore' (if you've not watched it, please do. It's SO funny), is the character 'Bud' in 'Grace and Frankie', and even had a cameo in the amazing American monster film, 'Cloverfield', which came out in 2008.With a successful career in comedy under his belt too - appearing on Conon, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson - I was pretty nervous when it came to speaking to him. But, surprise, surprise, he was lovely.We chatted all things mental health and, of course, spoke about his role in the 'Laughing Matters' Soul Pancake documentary, which features a bunch of successful US comedians speaking about the role mental illness had played throughout their careers.Baron Vaughn: "I'm a person who lives life. So, therefore, I experience anxiety and depression".If you enjoy the episode or any of the others, please share with friends, family, or anyone who you think they may help.This is brilliant. Here's The Stress Sessions with Baron Vaughn!-----------On a side note, I'm not a professional in this field, nor do I claim to be. These podcasts are purely based on my own, personal experiences, and those of my guests, alongside some simple hints and tips along the way.If you are suffering from a mental illness, there are lots of amazing charities that will be able to help you by offering professional advice. You'll be able to find these here.
