[Contains explicit content] The South. From the bottom of Missouri on down, and, uh, to the right, there lies a huge swath of territory that's all different, but the same enough to fiercely deny that Texas and Florida are part of it. On this episode of Sounds Like America, host Roy Wood Jr. (The Daily Show) kicks off our tour of the dirty South. You'll hear stand-up comedy, music, and on-the-street interviews that capture a slice of what life is like below the Mason-Dixon line.
Sounds Like America is a wild sound collage of the US with the people who've seen it all and tell it like it is: comedians.
The comedy in this episode was recorded at live venues all around the country. It features Mitch Burrow, Rocky Davis, DC Benny, Sarah Tiana, Zoe Rogers, Jay Snyder, Jen Kober, W. Kamau Bell, Jarrod Harris, and Mark Normand.
Also featured are interviews with comedians Leanne Morgan, Preacher Lawson, Mia Jackson, and Jason Webb, as well as some patient people we bothered on the street. The music in this episode was performed by Clark Williams, also known as Big Kitty.
