At my age, nobody in the biz is going to listen to me, but I believe that what I've heard so far on Comedy 1200 has several problems: Virtually all of the cuts are by male comedians and a very high percentage of the male comedians are white. For sure, we need more female voices and ethnic minorities. And they ought to slow down--a lot! After 20 minutes, I feel as if I've been listening for eight hours. If TSL is important (and supposedly, it is), why make the listener feel as though he has been listening all day after only 20 minutes or so?
