Jean Yves Joseph (who goes by the name of Haiti) escaped Haiti (thus the nickname) as a child with his family just ahead of Baby Doc Duvalier. On this episode, he talks about what it was like to live there and the culture shock that he has gone through in America.
Jon Reep is from North Carolina. On this episode, he explains what that has meant to him--from becoming a man in a church's baptismal changing room to being perp-walked at an NFL game to winning Last Comic Standing.
