Andrew Ti welcomes comedians Sean O’Connor and Noah Garfinkel for Cloud Atlas week on Yo, Is This Racist? Today they explain the racial fuck fest that is Cloud Atlas, talk about Halle Berry as Indian Party Guest, and Hugh Grant playing a savage. On a regular week you can leave us a question about something being racist at 323-389 RACE.

I love it. It feels like a crossover episode with the Paul Sheer show: How Did This Get Racist?

Noah Garfinkel is one of my favorite humans to currently exist so I am very stoked about this development

This week is going to be amazing.

I saw Cloud Atlas and actually liked it (at least 5/6 of it), but the race/gender-bending make-up was not only poorly done (in most cases), but needlessly gimmicky since there wasn't really any common thread or recurring traits among, say, all of Tom Hanks' characters.
