      Comedian: Ty Barnett

      A funny, thought-provoking and edgy comic, Ty Barnett says he realized for the first time that being black was going to be an issue when the doctor slapped him - twice - and made him cut his own umbilical cord! The Chicago native, who has been performing since his high school days on the city's south side, describes his comedy as "comfortably social with funny political views that aren't forced on the audience." He began touring - and earning rave reviews - in California, Oregon and Canada before being voted "Up-and-coming Comedian of the Year" in 2002 at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. He first gained the attention of Hollywood after being named "Outstanding Performer" at Montreal's "Just for Laughs Festival." Since then, Barnett has appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" as well as "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and is a regular on the "Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson." Location:
