Franklyn Ajaye – Black Power Movement

0



One of my favorite bits from one of my favorite comedians. Recorded in 1973 and I feel it still works on so many levels. Feel free to share your thoughts. Shared for historical purposes. I do not own the rights.

From Wikipedia–
Franklyn Ajaye (born May 13, 1949) is an American stand-up comedian and actor. His nickname is “The Jazz Comedian” for his distinctive jazz inflected style of delivery, timing, and astute use of silence. His name is sometimes wrongly spelled as Franklin (sic) Ajaye.

Ajaye was born in Brooklyn, New York, but raised in Los Angeles by a Sierra Leonean father, after whom he is named, and an American mother (named Quetta), making Ajaye, as he likes to joke, a “true African-American”. He has released five comedy albums to date: Franklyn Ajaye, Comedian (1973), I’m a Comedian, Seriously (1974), Don’t Smoke Dope, Fry Your Hair (1977), Plaid Pants and Psychopaths (1986), and Vagabond Jazz & the Abstract Truth (2004). The last two were recorded in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
