here we go, playing race on Last Comic Standing

riddle me this:

Guy Torry's audition on Last Comic Standing was horrific. I didn't laugh once. but he was passed thru because he was known by the judges. when asked why he wanted to be on show: because black shows get canceled too quickly.

Guy Torry has been in big screen movies and doing standup ON TELEVISION for years, but because he played to a black audience mostly, he's not considered a comic?? and is now back to amateur looking to be discovered nationally because of race??? 8-O
