Karith Foster, Tony Powell join Don Imus on the air

Don Imus decided his reintroduction to morning radio would go a whole lot smoother if he had two black comedians as sidekicks, and so it was this morning that Karith Foster and Tony Powell joined Imus to chat it up in front of a full house this morning at Town Hall in Midtown Manhattan.

If I’d known about Foster — whom I’ve seen in NYC and Boston and who takes part in a series of comedy shows called "ColorStruck" — I may have bothered to wake up early and have a listen. Maybe I’ll do that Tuesday. But do I have to? I didn’t enjoy listening to Imus or ever seek out his program before.

Here’s an early review from David Hinckley at the New York Daily News.
