The annual comics extravaganza Comic-Con International is underway, with 125,000 fans geeking out at the San Diego Convention Center. And that doesn’t count all the film and TV stars on hand to court them: from Robert Downey, Jr., talking up Iron Man 3 to HBO producers peddling Game of Thrones. Next, it isn’t easy to put a fresh spin on A Streetcar Named Desire, one of the most acclaimed plays in American theatre, with its caricatured Brando scream of “Stella!” A new production on Broadway aims to shake things up, putting black and Latino actors in the lead roles.Then, a couple years ago, Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win an Oscar for directing The Hurt Locker. It wasn’t quite the tipping point for women many in the industry had hoped for: of the 250 major movies that came out last year in the US, women directed only 5% of them. But when it comes to commercial and critical breakthroughs among independent films, a shift seems to be happening.After that, a couple weeks ago, the music critic Tim Page posted a shortlist on Facebook of “perfectly good music that I never need to hear again.” He included Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, acts 1, 2, and 4 of Puccini’s La Boheme, Dave Brubeck’s "Take Five," and the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. And finally, Dirty Projectors manage to be both avant-garde and accessible — the band plays experimental rock you can still dance to. They’ve collaborated with Bjork and David Byrne, and been covered by Solange Knowles (sister of Beyonce). [Broadcast Date: July 14, 2012] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

Jamal Doman has his own style of comedy, which he refers to as "sophisticated ghetto". Jamal says, "My comedy is much like my personality. I'm from the hood, but I have some sophistication to me." Called "a comedian's comedian" by his peers, Jamal is poised on the brink of stardom. Jamal may be rough around the edges, but he is genuine at the core, and the audience relates to him. A Philadelphia native, Jamal was born into a family where comedy reigned supreme. His parents, whom Jamal credits for their unconditional support of his comedic endeavors, were huge fans of Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, and Robert Klein. After his first encounter with Murphy's Raw, Jamal was compelled to give his own stand-up chops a try; he entered a talent show and has been moving full speed ahead ever since. In 1998 Jamal made the move to Los Angeles, where he quickly became an industry favorite. Shortly after his arrival in Hollywood, Jamal began making appearances on stand-up comedy TV shows including Comics Unleashed, BET Comicview, Martin Lawrence 1st Amendment, Latino Laugh Festival, Showtime at the Apollo, Who Wants to Date a Comedian, and Comedy Central Laff Riots. Not content with conquering the stage and TV, Jamal set his sights on both film and the Internet. Over the course of his career, he starred in the films Repos, The Greatest Song, and Streets. He has also solidified his reputation as an Internet sensation, with his videos amassing thousands of views and his "JUICY T. - Certified Pimp" webisodes, which are now popular classics. He has a new podcast titled The Baldheads with Comedian Tobe Hixx. Jamal is a US military favorite, having performed for our troops in Guam, South Korea, Iceland, Japan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Iraq. Jamal says, "Performing for the troops is one of the joys of being in this business". With almost three decades in the game, the best is ye 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jamal Doman.
