Episode 44 – Otiz Cannelloni
SnapSessions! Presents Episode 44, featuring an interview with British comedian, magician, and painter, Otiz Cannelloni, as well as “SCOTUS vs. Mother Earth”, a look at a US Supreme Court case which threatens to upend all Climate legislation.
Cannelloni talks about his youth in Crystal Palace in South London, and shares stories of his time as a drama teacher in London schools. He reminisces about beginning writing and performing comedy at the various London venues, and combining magic, mime, and juggling with jokes. When comedy clubs around London closed due to the pandemic, Otiz responded by producing a series of paintings of great comedians, leading to ”A Comedian’s Comedians”, his new art show at The Lauderdale House in London. A fascinating and creative career celebrating laughter and joy.
“SCOTUS vs. Mother Earth” is an in-depth look an upcoming Supreme Court case where the court will attempt to greatly limit the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate polluting industries. Using the arcane “major questions doctrine”, the current right-wing court threatens to crush the US government’s ability to battle Climate Change.
