Here’s a short segment from Danny Hoch‘s brilliant film “Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop.” It details Hoch’s experience with racial stereotypes when he was cast on the series “Seinfeld.” Like a lot of people who saw the film (or the one-man show the film adapts), this was the first thing I thought of when I heard about the recent Michael Richards controversy. I’d say more, but it’s better to let Hoch tell his own story.
Hoch is easily the most powerful solo performer I’ve ever seen. Spectacularly brilliant.
You can buy the film, which is amazing, from Amazon. You can also buy it directly from Danny on his site.
