For sure she’s the writer and star of hilarious, confrontational pieces like 52 Man Pick Up and Tarbaby. Put the headphones on for a fascinating, smart show that is seriously NSFW.

This week on the ACP with Greg and Jonathan, Greg asks Dana Alexander - a black female comedian - about which is more difficult: being black or female? Dana has a lot to say about both. Calling out a right-wing comedian on HuffPostUK even earned her her own blog there.
And we meet Max Amini, Iranian/American comedy superstar. The Amsterdam Persian community stood in line to take a selfie with him. Go figure!
