Comedian Baron Vaughn host of the new Comedy Central show The New Negros stopped by the KFOG studios today for what turned an amazing peek behind the curtain of what goes into producing a comedy show.

Baron walks me through the concept of The New Negros, co-hosted by rapper Open Mike Eagle, and how he took it from what was supposed to be a one off live show, to a full fledged variety show incorporating comedy, music, and music videos.

Baron also shares some of his favorite memories of his time over the years performing at the Punch Line after the sad news earlier this week that the iconic comedy club lost it’s lease and is in search of a new home.

Catch Baron live this weekend at the Punch Line, and make sure to check out The New Negros Friday nights at 11pm on Comedy Central.
