This episode is both of the interviews I have conducted with comedian Lee Camp of www.leecamp.net. Even if we have opposing views on solutions for our current world and national situation, we point out the issues with today's society and offer up some humor along the way.
This week our special guest is political comedian and activist Lee Camp. His comedy has been featured on Showtime, BBC and The Onion. His video series, "Moment of Clarity" has gone viral. He is the author of the book "Moment of Clarity" and has an album coming out entitled "Pepper Spray the Tears Away".
Camp's comedy stands in the grand tradition of Lenny Bruce and George Carlin. It's bold, brash, funny and most importantly, the truth.
Dick Belsky, former editor at the Daily News and the New York Post, talked about working with Jim Iovino, idolizing Jim Iovino, and trying to be more like Jim Iovino. He also told us about his new novel, THE KENNEDY CONNECTION. In hour two, we set our fantasy football draft order and replayed our recent interview with the great Lee Camp.
Lee Camp was born in 1980 in Bethesda, Maryland. He started writing comedy when he was 14, then got his humor columns printed in the high school literary magazine. Upon arriving at the University of VA, he won a competition to become the humor columnist for the school newspaper "The Cavalier Daily". Camp then wrote a weekly humor column for all four years he attended the university. He began performing stand-up comedy on his 19th birthday at an open-mic night at Matt's Pub in Richmond. He also performed regularly throughout the rest of his time at UVA university, opening for Jimmy Fallon, Darrell Hammond, Lewis Black, and Tracy Morgan.
Lee spent the following years performing three shows per night at Ha! Comedy Club, N.Y.C. and performing at between 70 and 100 colleges per year. He performed at the first five Netroots Nations as well as the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
He gained a lot of attention when he appeared on Fox News morning show Fox & Friends in 2008, when he went live on air saying "What is Fox News? It's just a parade of propaganda, isn't it? It's just a...festival of ignorance." The video clip went viral online and was viewed by millions.
He was featured running for president on Comedy Central's "Fresh Debate '08", and also appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" that year.
His web series "Moment of Clarity" started in March 2011. It became a short podcast as well in June, 2011.
Camp is a regular performer at the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Camp bears a tattoo on his left forearm, a quote from Howard Zinn, which says “Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can quietly become a power no government can suppress, a power than can transform the world.”
