On today's episode I speak with Marlon Palmer, the Jamaican-Canadian comedian, podcaster, and content creator. With a mission to help people forget their problems, Marlon aims to bring joy and laughter to any environment he occupies. He talks about his journey to becoming a voice for Black Toronto culture and how he intends his work to create a ‘third space’, or a place of rest for people to lay down the burdens of home and work. Marlon and I discuss the power of art to push boundaries, and we touch on some of the pay equity disparities he experiences as a Black content creator.
During this episode I promise that you will enjoy some good laughs, and discover how comedy has the power to both inspire necessary conversations, and bring comfort to the community at the same time.
