Christmas in Prison: For Locals Only, Wyatt Cenac Tells World's Longest In-Joke Ever

|Wyatt Cenac tells his story of spending one Christmas in a Texas prison.|
Late last night, Pete texted me a suggestion that I listen to Cenac's opening stand-up segment from This American Life's Comedians of Christmas Comedy Special, which debuted on NPR this weekend. It was, Pete promised, a lengthy bit about Dallas and Austin. Only, he didn't say how lengthy: Not only are the two cities separated by 200 miles; so too are set-up and punch line. So at least you've been warned. But I imagine this time of the week at this time of the year you may have 13 minutes to spare. Seriously, though. For locals only. Maybe even native-born Dallasites only. I can only imagine how it played at a tiny club in Brooklyn.
