For four years, comedian Wyatt Cenac served up timely satire as a Daily Show "Correspondent." He's now hatched his own show,"Night Train," a surreal showcase for stand-up comedians and artists. Earlier this year, Wyatt put out an album of his own stand-up material. It's called "Furry Dumb Fighter," and touches on difficult topics that feel especially relevant right now. Hear an excerpt from the album, in which Wyatt recounts the time he was accused of stealing his own car. Really.
