Inside Zero Books #71: Comedian Jake Flores’ visit from Homeland Security

May 20th, 2018 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

Stand-up comic Jake Flores tweeted out a joke thread about killing ICE officers and got a visit from Homeland Security who were not so amused. Jake stops by to tell the tale of his visit and reflect on the question of free speech in America.

From Jake's webpage:

Jake Flores was born in Austin TX in a dumpster full of Chinese food after an old jacket had sex with another old jacket. The jackets named him Jake, after the fact that they were jackets. Then in 2007 he was in the finals of NBC's Stand Up For Diversity. He's has been doing stand up for slightly longer than the current booming glut of millennial iPhone wielding irony zealots so he feels a completely undeserved sense of superiority for being an android wielding sincerity zealot. He yelled a lot about his drinking problem and then in 2014 Stand Up Records! decided to secretly record one of his yelling sessions and it became an album called Humours (Stand Up! Records). It did pretty well so he moved to New York to start yelling at a professional level. The Jackets are very proud of him.
