Comedian Eric Blake, from South Central L.A., does that "boys in the hood" kind of comedy that tap dances on race, the criminal justice system and L.A. life, and also comments on topics like corporate marketing, short people driving big SUVs, and Iraq ("We have this weapon called the smart bomb. This is a bomb where you type in address, the bomb shows up, knocks on the door. 'Is Saddam here? No? I'll wait.'"). He mixes hood life with geopolitics in a bit on Osama Bin Laden: "He's worth $25 million dollars. I live in the ghetto. They're lucky I'm not just snatching people off the street—'Is this him? No? How about this guy?'" [WR]
