Episode 3: The many ways to arrive at laughter with Dion Flynn

Dion Flynn is best known for his impression of Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Clanging: Verbal Jazz, a co-produced stage show with Josh Radnor of How I Met Your Mother, and directing some sort of a one-man show written by and starring some dude named PJ.

In this episode, we explore the role humor and laughter played throughout Dion’s battles with racism, addiction, and his own self-doubt. Dion’s path from the only brown kid in a Maryland trailer park to the Tonight Show stage in Rockefeller Center is packed with stories of despair and hope, misunderstanding and empathy, hard times and hard laughs.

A master storyteller, there isn’t a minute of Dion’s tale of trauma and growth that won’t grip you emotionally.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and then you’ll laugh some more.

Credits: Dion Flynn (Featured Guest), David Bobrow (Executive Producer), PJ Walsh (Host, Producer), Sam Pressler (Host, Producer), Matt Condon (Communications Director, Producer), Grace Manno (Designer).
