    What Happened to the Black Sitcom??

    in Education

    I would like to discuss the black sitcom and why it doesn't appear on the big networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Could this be a racial issue? Are other ethnicities not interested because the shows are stereotypical?

    Flipping Over To The Flipside With Michael Loftus & Glenn Atkinson

    in Politics Conservative

    Southern Sense is a show of conservative talk on news and events, with Annie "The Radio Chick" Ubelis as host and  Curtis Bennett as co-host.  Informative, fun, irreverent and politically incorrect, you never know where we'll go, but you'll love the journey!


    Visit our website at http://www.Southern-Sense.com, become a member and follow us here and on Facebook.


    Michael Loftus is one of the busiest performer/writers in comedy today. His background in improvisational comedy began with the founding of the Midwest Comedy Tool & Die Comedy Troup. He went on to perform with Acme Theater in Hollywood. He is currently a writer/producer on the FX Charlie Sheen sitcom “Anger Management” which will reach 100 episodes later this year. He has also been a regular on TruTV’s “The Smoking Gun Presents”… Most recently, Michael created and starred in “American Wiseass” for History Channel, a half hour comedy that premiered in 2012.  http://theflipsideshow.com


    Glenn Atkinson is the Poster Boy of trying to legally obtain citizenship in the United States.   Legally entering the USA from Canada in 2006, he has been arrested, harassed and intimidated, including being jailed for 90 days as an illegal immigrant.  His story is one of how broken our immigration system is and how skewed to favor illegal aliens over legal immigrannts.

    Dallas Marla's Supperclub Showcase Theater

    in Entertainment

    Marla Gibbs, the actress who played Florence the maid on the TV sitcom "The Jeffersons." and starred on "227," has given a little back to the old neighborhood by opening Marla's Memory Lane (which is also known as Marla's Jazz Supper Club).

    It's exactly what the name suggests, offering authentic old-time Jazz, Standards, and Big Band in a relaxed dining environment.

    She opened the club in 1981 (although it's been around for over 60 years in one form or another.) Marla has managed to keep the place going despite financial difficulties, but since 1994, it has been open and closed sporatically. So you'll probably want to call ahead to be sure that something is scheduled. As of April 1999, though, Marla's offered a Jazz Champagne Brunch with live entertainment every Sunday ($17)

    Over the years, the club has been a showcase for many up & coming African-American jazz artists. Some of the legends of jazz have played there over the last decade, including Big Joe Turner, Jimmy Witherspoon, Pee Wee Crayton and Albert Collings. In early May of 1995, the club hosted a two-day birthday bash for Marla (replete with live jazz), which was open to the public. It may become an annual tradition. (Her birthday is May 14, by the way...)

    The place has a bar and showroom in the front room, and a dining room in the back with celebrity photos.

    The only drawbacks are the club's unusual hours (it's open Sunday from 11 AM to 4 PM) and its location in South-Central Los Angeles. (Exercise reasonable caution.)
