Alright! Funny Human of The Week time again, great. This week we’re talkin’ ’bout LA-based standup Solomon Georgio, who just had his late night debut on Conan LAST NIGHT. This column is really keeping up with the times, very current!
Let’s watch a clip from Solomon, where he talks about his social anxiety for a show all about humiliation. It’s great and funny and self-aware!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMiHRXxWkIc
Solomon made some waves last year responding to racist Twitter monsters with messages of acceptance and kindness on Martin Luther King Day, and things went surprisingly well! Let’s hear a little about that in this short interview he did with StageBuddyTV in New York City!
Speaking of Twitter, here’s a bunch of quality tweets from our new friend Solomon!
