Lewis Black, Syl Johnson & Annie Hart

Find out why he left the theater for comedy and why he actually considers himself a family comic. The answer will surprise you. Then Jesse talks to Syl Johnson – the soul singer who has been sampled on countless hip-hop records -- about turning down the record deal that ended up going to Al Green. Andrew Noz shares some of his favorite hip hop tracks, and Annie Hart of Au Revoir Simone reveals the hardcore song that changed her life.
