For one Friday, standup comedian and Daily Show correspondent Dulce Sloan is going to have the rare and impossible honor of being in two places at once. In DC, she’ll be performing on The New Negroes show as part of BYT and Tig Notaro’s Bentzen Ball. But the rest of the country will also get to see her debut television special, as it premieres as part of this year’s Comedy Central Half-Hour series.
Given her correspondent gig, Sloan is no stranger to viewers of the network. In her role, her clear voice brings humor to important and at times unfunny issues like policing and cultural appropriation. While the material is written for her, she brings it to life in a highly unique way. But in her half hour, she took the opportunity to use that “heightened version of herself” to speak on more personal experiences than might come up on the show.
In some ways, it seemed to differ from how she approached the sets leading up to the special; she noted, “a lot of times, at a lot..Read more

We missed Variety’s Top 10 Comics to watch showcase at Just for Laughs this year, but it’s a show everyone at the festival was talking about today after the last comedian to perform ended the night being boo’ed by the crowd, and with a lot of his fellow honoree’s pretty pissed.
This year’s Variety Top 10 list was and is mostly a murderers row of up and comers. Julio Torres, Sam Jay, Joel Kim Booster, Hari Kondabolu, Dulce Sloan, Amanda Seales, Jabookie Young White and Taylor Tomlinson, all comedians we’ve loved and written about before. We weren’t familiar yet with Darren Knight, listed as “Southern Momma” in his Variety description, but according to the write-up, he has a “windfall of social media page views, 175 shows and his own documentary.” Not something we’re normally impressed with– our focus tends to center on stand up comedians rather than Facebook or YouTube stars, so we don’t know too much about him, but he’s certainly getting a lot of attention now after h..Read more
