Sam Richardson is an actor, writer, and comic. He was born in Detroit, but he has a Ghanaian mother. His childhood was split between the two places. After college, Sam moved to Chicago to pursue comedy through The Second City improv theater.

Now, Sam's co-created and starred in the new Comedy Central show Detroiters produced by Lorne Michaels and Jason Sudeikis. It's about two young men (Sam and co-creator Tim Robinson) who acquire an advertising company in Detroit.

Sam talks to Wyatt about creating his new show, what it was like growing up between the United States and Ghana, and what people get wrong about Detroit.

You can watch Sam on Detroiters Tuesday's at 10:30/9:30 c on Comedy Central and on the sixth season of Veep which premieres on April 16th.

The joke that constitutes the title of this episode is absolutely the best thing in this episode, and I'm very, very sorry for ruining it, but I can't imagine titling this episode anything else. This joke is important. This joke is historically meaningful.
