Writer, actor, and comedian Damien Lemon returns this week to talk about his work on “The Night Of” and “Comedy Knockout,” as well as why it’s so tough to pick out gifts for kids. Then they get into some Denzel news before grilling Kamau about his recent Emmy nomination, and they dive into a discussion on the 2002 film “John Q.” They address the use of the young precocious black archetype, as well as the two main through-lines of the movie and how the hospital crowd pulls the audience in.
