Christopher Titus & Mark Pitta

Chef Jeremiah Tower & Comedian Azhar Usman. David goes insane demanding to know why Ann Coulter won’t go away?

Three of the biggest names ever to come out of my hometown, San Francisco: Comedian Christopher Titus, Comedian Mark Pita, and, this is huge, Chef Jeremiah Tower, plus my new friend, one of Dave Chappelle’s favorite opening acts, and he’s writing for tomorrow night’s White House Correspondents Dinner, Comedian, Lawyer, Husband, Father, Son and Holy Ghost Azhar Usman. Christopher Titus is working on his eighth comedy special. Mark Pita recalls the early days of San Francisco comedy scene, his first Carson shot, and what it’s like to hang with your comedy heroes. Jeremiah Tower! If you know anything about food this is big, and if you don’t know anything about food you need to know who Jeremiah Tower is. It all starts with Jeremiah Tower. Before Mario Batali, before Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, before Wolfgang Puck there was Jeremiah Tower who created the idea of a celebrity chef, he created not only California cuisine, he created American cuisine, he created farm to table he created the whole idea of being a locavore. He’s on the show today!

  1. Dear David,

    I enjoyed your discussion with Azhar Usman and wanted to say something about the free speech issue you and he talked about.

    You said that like with pornography you know hate speech when you here it. No doubt that’s true but the problem isn’t in identifying obvious hate speech, it’s in knowing what isn’t hate speech. You know about offense culture and how young people are needing safe spaces and trigger warnings to avoid being harmed by ideas.

    That is our culture slipping down the slope you seem to think is a bogus worry. People are looking for offense. The offender becomes a hater and their speech becomes hate speech.

    The solution is for everyone to get a grip. Ideas are not violence. Bad ideas can be argued against. People with bad ideas will be known – like Ann Coulter.
