Catching up on old business, I'm here to present highlights from Jasper Redd's first half-hour special with Comedy Central Presents. At first, I have to acknowledge I got a bit worried, as a couple of Redd's early bits cover similar territory as a comedian I know in New York City, but they treat the premises differently enough that I feel it's a matter of parallel thinking. One thing they don't have in common: My acquaintance doesn't wear a big black cowboy hat and look like he might be a rural sheriff's deputy. Other things you may learn about Redd during this special: He won't form a hate group against snorers, nobody hates Hawaiians, car horns should sound like gunshots, "you can't Photoshop blacks into history," and people with herpes are very athletic. Roll the clips!
