RBTL’s theater: time to move on?

On philanthropist Tom Golisano’s withdrawing his pledge to help fund a new theater for the Rochester Broadway Theatre League: Tom Golisano has been more than patient. If the other funding sources aren’t there, then let’s be honest about it and move on.

Borrowed money is initially good for construction jobs, but at some point you have to pay the piper. These theaters can’t support themselves. It may be culturally important for a city to have a theater, but it’s not win-win. We should admit defeat and forgo the financial alchemy. If Mayor Warren can’t summon a coalition of deep-pocketed business leaders, then it’s game over. MIKE BRUTON

Roc/Acts, crime, and punishment

On our post-election article, “Activists Press State Democrats on Mass Incarceration”: The

wish list for Roc/Acts is unrealistic and would compromise public safety even more that it is already. Let’s take the issue of solitary confinement. That system is used to provide an incentive good behavior, sort of like a time-out. The activists mention the effects of solitary confinement on mental health; people seem to forget they are in prison. It is not a daycare or nursery. Folks have done some extremely terrible 2 CITY

things. Otherwise they wouldn’t be there. As for police accountability issues: If the police don’t arrest someone, then they might be held accountable and lose their jobs for showing excess timidity and not doing their jobs properly. As for bail concerns: Bail is designed only to guarantee people return to court until the adjudications are complete. If someone has no or very few prior offenses, most likely they are released on their own recognizance while reporting once a week to the local probation office to check in. The article mentions excessive time behind bars awaiting trial on what the article says is relatively low bail. But if these people care about their children, jobs, and housing in the first place, why do they allow themselves to be caught up repeatedly in the criminal justice system? The reason the relatively low bail isn’t paid by friends, employers, and families is because these individuals have run out of second chances with them. In addition, if someone is unjustly convicted of any crime in New York State, the conviction can be overturned if evidence wasn’t available at the time of the conviction. There is no statute of limitations. I can’t be sympathetic about people who have chosen to make a career out of victimizing innocent people and are only crying foul when they are being held to a just accounting for their actions.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Our divided America and the news we like The next presidential election is two years off, but people in both major parties already have their eyes on the White House. On Sunday, along with news about the latest climate report and Ivanka Trump’s emails, stories in The Hill’s e-newsletter included these: “Kasich ‘very seriously’ considering 2020 run,” “Klobuchar ‘still thinking about’ running in 2020,” “Sherrod Brown ‘seriously thinking about’ 2020 bid,” “Steyer undecided on running in 2020.” And then there are Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Jeff Flake, Juan Castro, John Delaney, Richard Ojeda, Eric Swalwell, Beto O’Rourke.... There’ll be a lot of winnowing out. But much of what happens in Washington, and a lot of the news we get, will be influenced by people with half their attention focused on 2020. How much of what happens, I wonder, will start pulling us together as a country, and how much will push us further apart? And what will voters – on the left and the right – be looking for in a presidential candidate? If some of the candidates try to pull us together, will anybody notice? Many of us have become so convinced of our own wisdom that we don’t want to listen to anybody who doesn’t reinforce our beliefs and prejudices. That’s showing up not only in who we socialize with and what we talk about but also in the news we read and watch and listen to. A recent article by Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow offered a particularly disturbing example of right-wing news selection: the experience of a website called America’s Last Line of Defense. Maine resident Christopher Blair created the site on Facebook during the 2016 presidential campaign and started posting deliberately outrageous fake news stories about Trump and Hillary Clinton. He started the site as a joke, Saslow writes, in response to far-right concoctions. The site is a sort of posterized version of satirist Andy Borowitz’s New Yorker columns. A recent example: A photo of a smiling Barack Obama with a fabricated quote: “If you’re ignorant enough to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ you’re a fake American and a racist,” and the text: “The traitor Obama has already begun the 2018 War on

Many of us are so convinced of our own wisdom that we don’t want to listen to anybody who doesn’t reinforce our beliefs. Christmas. Share if you’ll never stop saying Merry Christmas!” Judging from the posted comments, some of Blair’s followers know what he’s up to and are there for the laughs. But not everyone. Blair encourages his readers to “share if you’re outraged,” and many do. Blair’s page, Saslow writes, became “one of the most popular on Facebook among Trump-supporting conservatives over 55.” No story is too outrageous, apparently, because Blair is simply reinforcing what people already believe. That’s an extreme example, but many of us who are liberals also select our news sources based on what we believe. “There’s a big, reliable audience of people who will tune in to feel appalled by and superior to Trump,” the Times’ David Brooks wrote recently, “and who are addicted to their daily rituals of moral onanism.” That’s widening the country’s division, and deepening it. And it’s leading us toward a presidential election in 2020 in which the nominees of both major parties will be more interested in playing to our prejudices than to common interests. After four years of Donald Trump, the country will need to heal. But the majority of us will have to want it to heal. David Brooks is right. At the moment, too many of us seem to find satisfaction in our separateness. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Henrietta, Pittsford Activists to state: hold planning hold off on new meetings charter schools The Town of Henrietta and the Village of Pittsford each have meetings this week about potential zoning changes. At 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Henrietta Town Board will hold a public hearing on a draft environmental statement for its proposed comprehensive plan update and accompanying zoning changes. Among the potential amendments: removing multi-unit housing from the allowed uses in industrial districts and creating three new mixed-use zoning districts. The hearing will be held at Henrietta Town Hall, 475 Calkins Road. Village of Pittsford officials will hold their second public meeting on their 2019 comprehensive plan and zoning code updates, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Meeting Hall, 21 Church Street. The meeting will a brief presentation followed by activity stations and group discussions focused on topics such as the community vision for the village, policies, and future land use.

A consortium of parent and educational groups are calling on the New York Board of Regents and the State University of New York to stop authorizing new charter schools. Among the arguments from the Network for Public Education and New York State Allies for Public Education: • Although traditional public schools can’t expel students under 17, the activists say charter schools use harsh discipline and other measures to push students out. • Many charters flout the state charter law requiring them to make “good faith” efforts at enrolling students with disabilities and English language learners, consortium members say. • Charters lack transparency and accurate reporting and operate out of public view, the activists say, even though their founders and operators receive tax breaks. Some charters manipulate data on state reports, activists say. • There’s a lack of accurate accounting of the financial impact charters have on traditional public schools, activists say.

More suburbs partner on renewable energy

FILE PHOTO

The towns of Irondequoit, Brighton, and Pittsford, as well as the Village of Pittsford, will likely join the growing ranks of New York communities using community choice aggregation to bring clean, renewable energy to their residents and small businesses en masse. Under a CCA program, local governments contract with energy suppliers on behalf of their residents and small businesses, which buy the energy. Brighton, Irondequoit, and Pittsford officials are formalizing a memo in which they agree to work together to establish a CCA program. The memo also states the officials’ shared goal of securing a 100 percent renewable, clean-energy supply for their residents and businesses. And it says the leaders want the supply to be cheaper than the standard offering from Rochester Gas and Electric. In doing this, the governments are making a de facto statement about growing local interest in renewable energy, and it’s a show of faith in the ability of renewables to power their communities.

“It really moves the needle on sustainability,” says Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle. The governments will also soon release a request for proposals seeking an administrator for the program. The administrator will handle the technical, customer service, and customer outreach aspects of the effort, and officials are “looking for as much turnkey as possible,” says Pittsford Supervisor Bill Smith. Realistically, the three town supervisors say, they’re only likely to get responses from the two administrators currently operating in Upstate New York: Good Energy and Joule Assets. Irondequoit Supervisor David Seeley says that sharing an administrator means the four governments will have greater leverage over contracts, since the administrator will represent a larger customer base. The Village of Brockport was the first Monroe County community to approve a CCA program and to get state approval to proceed. The City of Rochester has been pursuing a CCA program, though it’s working through some technical issues.

AIM Photonics officials see the start of work in the Test, Assembly, and Packaging Facility’s cleanrooms as a big milestone. In December, they’ll begin working with representatives from a California company to develop a process for attaching ultra-thin fibers to a chip the company developed.

PHOTONICS | BY JEREMY MOULE

Photonics facility gets ready for work Up on the fourth and fifth floors of ON Semiconductor’s Lake Avenue building, some large, heavy, and sophisticated equipment sits in yellow-lit clean rooms, some of it hooked up and ready for use, some of it still in shrink wrap. It’s all part of AIM Photonics’ new Test, Assembly, and Packaging Facility, a development space meant to help US companies take light-based circuits from the prototype phase to manufacturing. Construction crews were planning to bring in another piece of cutting-edge equipment on Monday, an undertaking that requires removing panels on the north side of the former Kodak Building 81 and lifting up the bulky machinery several stories by crane; the building was designed for this exact task. But rain delayed the work, said Ed White, AIM Photonics’ associate vice president for the TAP Facility, during a media tour. This piece of equipment, which was made in Germany specifically for the facility, is crucial. It’ll allow the facility to perform its first production work for a client, work that should start in December. Two representatives of the company will work alongside AIM Photonics staff on a chip the company developed. Their task: to figure out a process for attaching

extremely thin fiber strands – a fraction of the thickness of one hair – to the chip. White wouldn’t disclose any but the most general details about the company and its product, though he did say the firm is based in California. Confidentiality is a necessity in the photonics industry, he said. “In this business, first to market is a big deal,” White said. But even if they can’t talk about the specific work, AIM Photonics officials see the start of work in the TAP Facility’s cleanrooms as a big milestone. The effort weathered an embarrassing public quarrel over its headquarters during its early days. And some critics – one of the most visible has been Gates Supervisor Mark Assini – have questioned whether the substantial state and federal investments in the effort will be worth it. At its most basic, AIM Photonics is a Department of Defense program. The public-private consortium is aimed at building up the US integrated photonics industry and making sure the technologies can be manufactured domestically. Integrated photonics technologies use light in place of electrons to make devices faster, smaller, lighter, and more efficient. The DOD sees a lot of uses for the technology, from sensitive imaging systems

to sensors and communications. It’s already used in data transmission, biomedical devices, and imaging equipment. The DOD put up $110 million to back the program, and that money supports operations in Rochester as well as projects across the AIM Photonics has been installing high-tech equipment in cleancountry.

HIGHER EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Kress faces pressure from MCC faculty Long-simmering tension between Monroe Community College President Anne Kress and the Faculty Senate and Faculty Association has erupted in a strong noconfidence vote by the Faculty Association, the MCC faculty’s union. Of the 502 full-time and part-time teachers who voted last week, 88 percent supported the no-confidence resolution. Some CSEA employees and retired employees also cast votes of no confidence. The vote by faculty represents 60 percent of those individuals eligible to vote, Kress said at a press conference on Tuesday in response to the no-confidence vote. “Our overwhelming, multi-campus direct vote of No Confidence presents a clear request to the tax-payers and students of Monroe County: We collectively insist on a full and transparent evaluation by the MCC Board of Trustees and her assigned managerial team,” the Senate and union said in a statement on Monday. “In addition we jointly agree that the Board of Trustees consider the dismissal or resignation of any member of the CEO’s selected team – including but not limited to the CEO herself – if they are found to fail appropriate standards.” At the Tuesday press conference, Kress refuted nearly all of the criticisms brought up by the union and she said she is not considering resigning. The vote did not come as a surprise to her, she said, and she said she was disappointed that union leaders decided to “negotiate away from the table like this.” There have been tensions between the faculty and the administration in the past, but this time the dissension has become so public that it could damage the institution. Kress’s problems at MCC are in stark contrast to her external image. Since her installation as president in 2009, she has become one of the most recognizable public figures in the region. Under her leadership, MCC has positioned itself as an important source of skilled labor and opened a new downtown campus. Though she’s not from Rochester, she’s one of the area’s most ardent promoters. In 2016, Governor Cuomo appointed her co-chair of the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. She is a trustee of the New York Power Authority and a trustee of the Upstate Regional Advisory Board of the New York Federal 6 CITY

Reserve Bank. Locally, she serves on the boards of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Rochester Enterprise, and she’s received numerous community awards for her work. The administration’s contract negotiations

with the union, which began in January and reached an impasse in June, appear to be a major factor in the faculty’s grievance. And the discussion about taking the noconfidence vote began back then, Kress said in an interview last week. The faculty has the right to ask for more money, Kress said, but if MCC is going to continue to provide students with the most affordable tuition possible, there are limitations. “At a certain point, we just don’t have the resources,” Kress said. But Amanda Colosimo, president of the Faculty Senate, and Bethany Gizzi, president of the Faculty Association, said the vote was not just over money. “She doesn’t pay attention and make good decisions,” Colosimo said. The resolution of no confidence, a document containing 68 complaints against Kress and her management team, cites a lengthy list of what the faculty describes as “gross violations of contractual agreements” and “violations of the basic norms of collegiate shared governance.” Among the complaints: that Kress has a bloated senior management team, employee discipline is inconsistent, employees have been intimidated, Kress has bought expensive but ineffective technology, and frequent reorganization of the administrative staff has created confusion. The faculty also blames Kress for MCC’s declining enrollment. The college enrolled nearly 13,000 students in the fall of 2018, a decline from the fall of 2013 when the enrollment reached nearly 16,500 students. School officials argue that community colleges across the country are experiencing challenges with declines in enrollment, which are attributed to many factors. For instance, a strong job market tends to attract people who might otherwise have gone to college. Many of the complaints, however, are over issues related to contract negotiations, requiring a mediator to step in.

Kress doesn’t appear to be in danger of

losing her job. The MCC board of trustees issued a public statement declaring its “full support” of Kress and her leadership even before the no-confidence vote was taken. “The Board of Trustees recognizes that differences in opinion exist and understands that regulations are in place to work through these differences in a fair manner,” wrote board chair Barbara Lovenheim. Employees have many opportunities to set goals and share in the governance of the college, Lovenheim said in her statement. But the faculty’s no-confidence vote could make it difficult for Kress to lead. Negotiations have resumed with a mediator, but it’s unclear whether contract negotiations will settle the rift. “We have to find a way to trust one another again, and that’s not going to be easy,” says the Senate’s Colosimo. How the students are reacting to this development is a growing concern to

both Kress and the faculty. Some students staged a walk-out late last month over the unresolved contract negotiations, and later some spoke out in support of the faculty. And students may be more naturally inclined to sympathize with their instructors, people they see frequently and know better than the administration. Kress said she takes the faculty’s vote seriously and says she is mostly concerned about the negative impact the adversity could have on students and the community. MCC offers degree and certificate programs in fields such as nursing, radiation technology, automotive technology, HVAC, precision machinery, food management, optical systems technology, and precision machiningoptical fabrication. “I think it could lead people to believe that MCC is less than it is when MCC is actually much, much more than people think it is,” Kress said.

Energy continues from page 4

Climate activists have encouraged local governments to take advantage of community choice aggregation and to pursue 100 percent renewable energy supplies. But they’ve also said that officials should give preference to administrators that place an emphasis on buying power from renewables projects locally and within New York State. By taking that approach, the local CCA projects would support existing renewable energy plants in New York and encourage development of new ones, particularly wind and solar power projects. The Rochester People’s Climate Coalition is working closely with Joule, which Coalition members believe has the better approach. In its all-renewables offerings, it incorporates – by default – smaller projects such as community-scale solar arrays and energy storage projects. The Village of Brockport has a contract with Joule to administer its CCA program; the village is in National Grid service territory while Brighton, Irondequoit, and Pittsford are in RG&E territory. In its publicly available CCA implementation plan, Good Energy says it offers governments the ability to incorporate renewables, including locally generated renewables, into their energy supplies. But climate activists are concerned that Good Energy won’t place enough emphasis on renewable energy generated locally and that it may lean too heavily on renewables credits from energy generated far from where it will be consumed, such as credits from Midwestern wind farms.

INSIDE ROCHESTER’S GROWING STAND-UP COMEDY SCENE HNE R [ FEAT URE ] BY DAN IEL J. KUS

Of all the art forms you could try to master, stand-up comedy is particularly challenging. It’s the only medium in which the only way to practice is in front of a live audience. It’s also the only medium in which the audience may be naturally inclined, and even socially emboldened, to dislike your performance and be vocal about it. And it’s impossible for a comedian to rely on the strength of old material or greatest hits; no one wants to hear covers of another comic’s bits. It’s all about churning out something fresh, and there’s nothing to hide behind but a mic stand. Those challenges haven’t stopped locals from telling jokes on stage. There are a crop of newcomers interested in learning the craft, as well as seasoned local comics sharpening their skills. Some of these stand-ups also produce their own shows to showcase the talent of other comedians.

Rochester’s mainstream stand-up club, Comedy at The Carlson – located at 50 Carlson Road, with a main room of 350 seats – hosts mostly out-of-town comedians, as do large performing venues like the Auditorium Theatre and Kodak Center. The local comedy landscape also includes a robust DIY scene, numerous open mics, and curated showcases at various bars, music clubs, and coffee shops. At these alternative venues, Rochester comedians can either develop their routines or present their complete stand-up sets. Whether it’s an open mic at Firehouse Saloon, with 20 or 30 people in a gathering of mostly fellow comedians, or a produced comedy show at Photo City Improv with a slightly larger audience, the vibe tends to be cozy and supportive. A handful of venues consistently feature stand-up in the city. Open mic sets tend to be works-in-progress, with a sometimes-raw delivery and unpredictable subject matter. Curated stand-up showcases are decidedly more polished and consistent in quality. Local comedian and presenter Woody Battaglia estimates that about 100 individual comedians perform at least once a month, and between 50 and 70 comedians perform more than once a month. Stand-up comedy in the Rochester area is by no means a new phenomenon, but what is different these days is the steady stream of open mics, hosted on a nearly daily basis, and the emergence of amateur and semi-professional comedians honing their material there. Among the most prominent of the open mics are the three weekly series produced by Battaglia, named Best Local Comedian in CITY’s 2018 readers’ poll. Battaglia is a ubiquitous figure in the Rochester stand-up scene, co-producing the “Comedy Cocoon” open mic each Sunday at the Bug Jar, with host Paul Barsamian; hosting the open mic

“Backdraft II: Laughdraft” at the Firehouse Saloon on Tuesdays; presenting an additional mic at Butapub on Wednesdays; and putting on curated comedy shows as part of the Brunchtown Comedy Collective alongside fellow comics Jane Ives and Ilhan Ali. Battaglia also hosts the weekly comedy-variety show “Almost Tuesday” on WAYO 104. 3 FM. Battaglia started doing stand-up in spring 2012, at a workplace talent show. He wasted no time after that, performing 100 sets in his first year and learning the importance of recording his performances and rewriting jokes. In addition to performing stand-up professionally, he also has several part-time jobs: working as a driver for Foodlink; playing the role of patient for students’ medical training at University of Rochester Medical Center; and editing the Maximum Fun podcast “Minority Korner.” Although he’s still an active stand-up comedian, Battaglia has additional priorities: teaching stand-up to beginners and providing a safe, inclusive environment for previously underrepresented groups like women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community to perform and watch comedy. “My goal is that as many people from as many different kinds of backgrounds come and do stand-up comedy in Rochester and become a part of the comedy scene,” Battaglia says. He teaches classes, he says, to give people from marginalized groups a place to “dip their toe in before they have to be in the lion’s den with a bunch of white dudes.” Kara Maillie – who is co-producer of “Almost Tuesday” and frequently shares comedy bills with Battaglia – first emerged as a prominent local performer not in stand-up, but in the comedic music group Hardwood with Hannah Weidner. “When I first got started,” Maillie says, “one of the first pieces of advice that I got from

another comedian was to not feel pressured to come up with a completely new set every time you go up. And I think that repeating jokes, and kind of bombing and trying new things and just seeing what works is part of what makes your jokes better and makes you more comfortable on stage.” While Maillie still writes and performs songs, in stand-up comedy she found an outlet that gives her even greater creative autonomy. “I’m kind of a control freak,” she says, “and I like to have complete agency over everything that I do, so stand-up allows for that. And it’s like a nonstop thrill ride, like when you do your set and things go really well and people really like it, there’s no better feeling.” During the day, Maillie works at the aerial imaging company EagleView. An integral part of her life, comedy also functions as an important expressive outlet. “I’ve definitely used it in place of therapy,” she says. “I think most comedians have.” Addressing “something that’s upsetting you in a way that makes other people laugh,” she says, “kind of lessens the pain a little bit.” Yolanda Smilez, an accounts receivable specialist at Pathstone, has been a comedian for eight years and is at the forefront of Rochester’s black comedy scene. Similar to Kara Maillie, Smilez says comedy became therapy for her. “I found it to be more of a stress reliever,” she says. “Things that I’m going through, I utilize it on the stage, and it helps me get through life. I love it. It keeps me breathing.” She cohosts the 585 Viral open mic every Monday at Photo City Improv with LaCarla Carter. Smilez also puts together “Cups of Laughs” the first Friday of each month and “Jokes and Jazz” on the last Thursday of the month, previously at Brue Coffee and now at 1872 Cafe. Her shows often feature poets, musicians, and other entertainers alongside comedians.

Comedian Malcolm Whitfield initially went to college to study photography. The co-producer of WAYO’s show “Almost Tuesday,” Whitfield also works as a barista at Boulder Coffee. And he performs comedy throughout the upstate area, including in small towns and in Buffalo. Although Whitfield is one of a handful of local comics who gig periodically at Comedy at the Carlson, his sets have found particular resonance in Rochester’s independent, DIY comedy scene, including Battaglia’s open mic circuit. “We’ve turned it into less of a boy’s club, less of a straight, white man’s club,” he says.

THERE ARE CLEAR DIVISIONS between the DIY sector

and the Rochester stand-up establishment. In recent years, Comedy at the Carlson has been the torchbearer for mainstream stand-up comedy in the city, with regular weekend shows featuring national and touring comedians. These shows are booked predominantly by Mark Ippolito, Carlson co-founder and former owner of the Comedy Club in Webster. The Carlson doesn’t regularly host open mics. Some comedians in the independent scene say there has been a lack of interest generally in local talent and a prohibitive attitude toward indie performers. With limited opportunities, some stand-ups have resorted to producing their own independently curated shows. Historically, Smilez says, local comedians have suffered from a lack of venues. Long-time Rochester comedian Vinnie Paulino also says he’s concerned that comedians don’t have enough opportunity to perform in front of comedy audiences in comedy venues. And an overabundance of open mics can prevent a genuine fan base from developing, he says.

“The only way to get better at stand-up is to perform in front of an audience that wants to see comedy,” he says. “The easiest way to get terrible at stand-up is to perform to the same group of your fellow performers, week in and week out.” Adds Yolanda Smilez: “A lot of people that’s in that scene, they’re so focused on the open mic that they forget that you’re a business. Are you doing this for a hobby, or are you actually trying to become a professional comedian? Because if you’re trying to become a professional comedian, you need to be focusing more on the brand of who you are as a comic.” Paulino, who is host of “Comedy at The CarlsonCast,” as well as a promoter, graphic designer, and executive producer at Comedy at the Carlson, has organized such locally focused events as “The Funniest Person in Rochester Contest,” “The Rochester Roast Battles,” and “Showmageddon ’18.” He says he worries about stagnation in the open mic circuit. “I want to change this, he says. “I want to see real audiences come out and enjoy these shows, and help folks get better so they can get real opportunity in this business.” In an effort to address what he sees as a lack of opportunity, Paulino is instituting “New Comic Night” at The Carlson, which began on Saturday, November 24, and will likely be a recurring event every two months.

A DISTINCTION OF MANY OF THE DIY OPEN MICS AND SHOWCASES in Rochester

is the emphasis on promoting a welcoming environment for all comedians and audience members, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. While much of local comics’ material draws from everyday, personal experience, some jokes can alienate people who may already be discouraged by a scene that is predominantly white and male, historically.

Ilhan Ali is one of many local comedians who have benefited from the more inclusive, independent scene and the positive environment it provides. A sexual assault survivor, Ali began performing stand-up as a means of self-expression and as a way to address her traumatic experience in a poignant yet entertaining way. “I started doing comedy,” she says, “’cause I was like, well, if that guy can go up there and talk about his penis for 10 minutes, then I surely can talk about my day.” Ali now hosts an open mic at The Pillar, 758 South Avenue, every Thursday and copresents shows in the Brunchtown Comedy Collective. Ali says hateful, bigoted speech – even under the guise of free speech – has no place in stand-up comedy. “There’s people who’ll be like, ‘Well, that’s just my comedy. My comedy’s not for everybody,’” she says. “And it’s like, if your comedy is divisive, if your comedy is sexist, if your comedy is homophobic, if your comedy is racist, it’s not for any of us.” While abusive speech is generally considered unacceptable, Rochester comedians have different attitudes about potentially offensive jokes. Whitfield notes the importance of not alienating anyone but also acknowledges that there is danger in the opposite extreme, in which someone can arbitrarily decide what is and isn’t funny. “There’s an air of super-progressiveness that is almost just as hostile and unwelcoming, because it’s putting rules on comedy,” he says. Fellow stand-up Todd Gursslin works as a program coordinator for the Urban League of Rochester and is co-host of “Hate This Podcast.” Monitoring the offensiveness of jokes at open mics is counterproductive, he says. He’s sympathetic to those who use comedy as a platform for encouraging social justice, but he

insists there’s a balance between being “woke” and allowing for free speech. “Anything can be joked about,” he says. “There’s a way to still kind of be edgy and do it in a way that’s not offensive.” Giving comedians a wider berth when testing out new jokes at an open mic will result in better comedy that’s effective and more inclusive of everyone, he says. “I will support you, because you’re a comic and you’re trying to speak your mind,” he says. “You’re doing it, and I would hope that other comics would be afforded the same thing that don’t have the same beliefs as you.” When it comes to making potentially controversial jokes, Yolanda Smilez says, any topic is fair game, but it all depends on the approach. “It’s also about who you’re presenting that joke to, to make them feel like, ‘Ok, I can deal with that,’” Smilez says. “I did a rape joke, because I was on the road and almost got raped by someone who booked me.” While not funny at the time, she later used it in a joke as a way to bring levity to a serious issue. Paulino says he’s concerned about political correctness in comedy. “I have watched a lot of new performers over the years, and I have personally witnessed the emphasis of their sets evolve from punch lines to platitudes,” he says. “It does worry me, because in my experience making a point is important, but being funny is what the audience came for.”

ROCHESTER’S STAND-UP COMEDY LANDSCAPE has

become more diverse, with more women and more people of color on stage telling jokes than before. There’s also more opportunity to see local comedians perform, and in a wide variety of venues. LaCarla Carter, known to comedy fans as Juicy LaCarla, credits her flexible work schedule at Wendy’s with enabling her to participate in open mics and comedy shows. Carter says Rochester comedy is an expanding scene, in which its varied comics and equally varied perspectives are important. “Even as we are somewhat divided, we still have the opportunity to mix and mingle and grow,” Carter says. To that end, a group comedy show has been set for Friday, December 7, 8:30 p.m. at 1872 Cafe, located at 431 West Main Street. The bill will include Ilhan Ali, Juicy LaCarla, Woody Battaglia, Todd Gursslin, Kara Maillie, Yolanda Smilez, and Malcolm Whitfield. Admission will be $10 at the door, with a portion of the proceeds going to Roc Award Cares. One thing that won’t change about stand-up is the spectacle of it. “Stand-up is one of the most intimate and masochistic types of performing art there is,” Paulino says. “I’m not aware of any other art form that encourages you to bare your soul to a group of strangers in hopes they will openly and fervently laugh at you.” And therein lies the fun. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Anyone who has witnessed a performance by homegrown and world-renowned vibraphonist Joe Locke knows one thing: he does not stand still. The same can be said for his music. Every album brings a fresh group of musicians and unexpected turns. “Subtle Disguise” – featuring pianist Jim Ridl, bassist Lorin Cohen, and Samvel Sarkisyan on drums – is no exception. The young group is as tight as it gets, and Locke is in top form, all but reinventing the vibes with his brilliant, four-mallet technique. Among the highlights, guest singer Raul Midón joins the group for searing renditions of Bob Dylan’s “Who Killed Davey Moore” and Blind Willie Johnson’s “Motherless Children.” In both cases, Locke reimagines the tune, bringing new urgency to the message. — BY RON NETSKY

Music opinions for more than three decades in a series of albums that have been critical of American presidents over the years. In a sense, Ministry has come to represent a wild ride of aggression, mashed up with Jorgensen’s political views. The band’s new album, “Amerikkkant” stays on course with song titles like “Victims of a Clown.” It’s the 14th studio album sprung out from Jourgensen’s creative mind, with rants against capitalism, conservatism, and racism. It’s the product of a man who has lived a life of rock star excess – often walking the tightrope between life and death – as revealed in his autobiography, “Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen.” Ministry is performing at Anthology on December 4. Jourgensen sounded upbeat as he spoke over the phone on Election Day about his music and politics. An edited version of the interview follows. CITY: How’s your health and what keeps you going?

Al Jourgenson: That’s the main thing you touched on is health. My health has been great over the last couple of years. When it was ridiculous and no one knew what was wrong and I just wanted to quit, I was sick of throwing up blood all the time. All that’s been taken care of. I feel great and ready to lead the charge on some good observations of society in the upcoming years. How has Ministry’s audience evolved throughout the years?

16 CITY NOVEMBER 28 - DECEMBER 4, 2018

Our crowd seems to be getting younger and more activist and more civic-minded each and every record. This last album, it was really weird. Some people have given me the moniker “Uncle Al,” because I’m like the crazy old uncle at Thanksgiving dinner who ruins the dinner with his political beliefs. I noticed that these kids have an affinity towards old Uncle Al and all of a sudden, I’ve become the voice of reason, whereas I used to be like this complete-anarchy kind of guy that was just a nihilist. In the movie, “Fix: The Ministry Movie,” you talk about disconnecting from your music when you find out it’s being used in ways you don’t intend. Do you still feel like you sometimes need to disconnect from your music?

That hit home really hard when we did “The Land of Rape and Honey.” I remember the absolute fucking terror I had when I

came out onstage on the first show of that tour back in 1988. It started out with sieg heils on the song “The Land of Rape and Honey.” And that’s what we opened the set with, and we had the accompanying visuals showing the downfalls of fascism and what it can do. The entire front row and mosh pit was angry, white skinheads sieg heiling me, thinking I was their new conquering hero promoting fascism. So there’s a real disconnect a lot of times with the aggression of the music and the content of the lyrics. And it’s hard to fathom because you don’t mean that when it happens, but when you see the actual result, it makes you recoil a bit and recalibrate on how to message your shit better so it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. I did an anti-George W. Bush trilogy – three records during the Bush administration. By the third record I realized it wasn’t about Bush at all. We’re misaiming our anger and our frustration and our confusion at a single talking head that’s been propped in by the system that created him. It’s the system that we really need to be dealing with. I’ve had to speak about this a lot. The new record is not an anti-Trump record, it’s an anti-system-that-produces-peoplelike-Trump-or-Bush record. It’s important that you hone your message to actually target the true purveyor of all things wrong in this society. What would you say is the legacy of Al Jourgensen and Ministry?

Oh shit, I don’t know that yet, man. I’m not done.

It’s hard to believe that Steve Earle’s seminal outlaw country album, 1988’s “Copperhead Road,” is 30 years old. Earle is hitting the road to celebrate this milestone. And his album “Guitar Town,” which went Gold in America and Platinum in Canada, is one of the finest records I’ve heard ever. Earle’s tunes aren’t cluttered or buried in production and instrumental wizardry. They are strong enough to fly on their own. A disciple of Townes Van Zandt, Earle has always preached that a musician’s worth or success lies in the strength of the songs. Earle proves it with a catalogue of gems that has earned him three Grammy awards. This cat rocks. An American treasure.

A Canadian Christmas Carol “Trailer Park Boys: A Sunnyvale Christmas” WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 7:30 P.M. KODAK CENTER, 200 WEST RIDGE ROAD $31.50-$61.50 | 800-745-3000; TICKETMASTER.COM [ PREVIEW ] BY JAMES A. BROWN

745 Park Ave 241-3120 • Open 7 days 20 CITY NOVEMBER 28 - DECEMBER 4, 2018

For twelve seasons, 105 episodes, and three movies, the cult Canadian mockumentary “Trailer Park Boys” has taken us into a cartoonish trailer park named Sunnyvale in fictional, rural Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The show centers on three friends: Ricky (Robb Wells), who failed 6th grade three times, lives in his car, and despite working multiple jobs throughout the run of the series claims that he has never had a real job; the perpetually drunk Julian (John Paul Tremblay), who brings a camera crew to Sunnyvale to follow him around; and Bubbles (Mike Smith), a maritime Milton Waddums,

known for his thick, obscure accent, thicker glasses, and his penchant for AK-47s and stray cats. These actors are bringing their characters and what they’re calling “one of the craziest Christmas shows ever” to the Kodak Center on Wednesday, December 5. “You can expect a lot of crowd interaction and a lot of fighting,” Robb Wells told CITY via phone from Nova Scotia. “We’re gonna be drunk for two weeks straight. That’s our only plan. We have a day off after Rochester. You’re gonna get out our all.” “It’s gonna be a naughty one,” Mike Smith added, in character as Bubbles, with his signature creaky, maritime accent (and gasping for air with every other syllable). He added that at the group’s Minneapolis show the night before, “there was almost a riot.” Minneapolis and Rochester are two stops of a twelve-city US tour. Live shows have become routine for the Trailer Park Boys in recent years, since the show was resurrected by Wells, Tremblay, and Smith after a long run on Showcase, a Canadian TV channel. The

actors bought the rights and are said to have acquired funding for the show’s production from the Canadian government. The group has since partnered with Netflix to produce its most recent seasons. The actors used the show’s cult following to launch a successful podcast named after “Trailer Park Boys,” as well as their own streaming service called SwearNet. SwearNet has become something of a petri dish for the trio, allowing them to put existing “Trailer Park Boys” characters in new situations. The cheerfully low budget spinoffs form an extended universe, most notably the podcast spoof, “The Jim Lahey Show and Randy.” That show centers on bit players Jim Lahey (the crabby manager of the trailer park) and his shirtless sidekick-assistant manager Randy. (Lahey was portrayed by John Dunsworth, who died in 2017). When asked about Dunsworth, Wells said: “That’s a tough one. His memory will live on.” As will the Trailer Park Boys, who say they have a new project coming in 2019.

Film

Ralph and Vanellope (voiced by John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman) in “Ralph Breaks the Internet.” PHOTO COURTESY WALT DISNEY PICTURES

Meme for a day “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (PG), DIRECTED BY PHIL JOHNSTON AND RICH MOORE NOW PLAYING [REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Released in 2012, Disney’s smash hit “Wreck-It Ralph” took what could have been a one-joke premise – what if video game characters had their own interior lives à la the toys in “Toy Story”? – and turned it a simple, heartfelt story about remaining true to oneself. Now comes the sequel, “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” about what happens when the video arcade where its characters reside finally gets a wifi router. This development expands the universe of the first film, allowing its characters to break

out of the self-contained world of the arcade and explore the vast reaches of the World Wide Web. In the process, the story delves into the complexities of long-term friendships and offers a surprisingly mature exploration of what our responsibilities are when navigating through cyberspace. If your digital experiences are anything like mine, the internet (especially the social media side of things) can be an absolute horror show, suggesting that it might make a challenging subject for movie aimed at children. So it’s perhaps understandable that the version of the internet depicted in the film by directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore scarcely resembles the one in real life. Here, it’s seen as a gleaming cityscape, offering endless possibilities and boundless information with the click of a button. Of course, the film still imparts some crucial guidelines to its young audience, including

internet rule Number 1: never read the comments. So it’s not entirely unrealistic. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” picks up six years after the events of the first film to find Ralph (John C. Reilly) settled and quite happy with his comfortable routine. But his best friend, feisty racer Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), is feeling restless, hungry for more excitement than her game of Sugar Rush can provide. When the Sugar Rush arcade cabinet is damaged, however, there’s suddenly a real threat that the game will be permanently unplugged and salvaged, leaving Vanellope homeless. Seeking a solution, she and Ralph discover that the hardware necessary to fix the game is available only on eBay, and the pair to whisk themselves into the internet to track down the crucial replacement part. As Ralph and Vanellope travel through the various reaches of the net, they meet

up with a BuzzzTube algorithm named Yesss (Taraji P. Henson), who teaches them how to turn viewers’ precious digital “hearts” into real money to buy what they need. It’s probably helpful not to dig too deeply into the message of the section, where Ralph happily commodifies himself by starring in a series of viral videos in the hopes of earning enough money to solve his problems. In addition to the wonderfully textured work of Reilly and Silverman, the film boasts some excellent vocal performances that bring life to a cast of colorful new characters, including Alan Tudyk as an overzealous search engine called KnowsMore, and an uncredited Bill Hader as a pop-up ad named J.P. Spamley. There’s also a bit of corporate synergy when Vanellope finds herself in Oh My Disney, the company’s official website, where she hangs with the company’s famous princesses. It’s an amusing sequence, and one that underlines how well Disney has mastered the art of poking just enough gentle fun at itself while still promoting its product. Most critically, the pair also enter a gritty, violent Grand Theft Auto-esque multiplayer game called Slaughter Race. While it appears a terrifying deathtrap to Ralph, Vanellope sees all the adventure and excitement she’s been missing. As she considers making Slaughter Race her permanent home, Ralph feels threatened when he sees his closest friend begin to have dreams that have nothing to do with him. In an effort to keep Vanellope by his side, Ralph lashes out in destructive ways, and the film offers some stark assessments about how the scariest thing on the internet can be a wounded male ego. It suggests that those insecure, needy, and self-destructive individuals are what’s really destroying the internet. Exploring a strange digital world that can equally be both wonderful and terrible, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” finds genuine emotion in this central conflict. Its bittersweet story imparts an important lesson to its young audience, about how friendships evolve over time, but we need to allow our loved ones the space to grow and change — even if that means letting go of our own ideas of who we want them to be.
