Just for Laughs festival has started and the comics have taken to the stage multiple times. However, when they’re up on the stage, you don’t really get to have a conversation with them. They tell you their jokes and you laugh and think, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Gina Yashere, Ahmed Ahmed, Dan Naturman, and Ronnie Chieng are four of the comics that will be taking the stage at Club Soda twice every night to do the Ethnic Show. I had a very lovely conversation with them and we talked about their experiences as being comics belonging to a minority. So, what is ethnic anyway?

The Ethnic Show runs July 8h to 19th at Club Soda, for tickets and info: hahaha.com
