Today, Asif asks Ali about the controversial origins of stand up comedy (1:05). Ali explains that stand up comedy evolved from vaudeville and that vaudeville itself evolved from minstrel shows. With respect to minstrel shows, Ali specifically references Thomas Dartmouth Rice's blatantly racist song-and-dance number, "Jump Jim Crow". He also discusses how the Irish were surprisingly often complicit in performing in blackface. Ali then discusses the long term ramifications of the fact that stand up grew out of these racist shows. Then, Ali asks Asif about the ‘Hidden Curriculum’ in medicine (25:57). Asif contrasts the ‘Hidden Curriculum’ with both the formal and the ‘Informal Curriculum’ (on the job training). He then provides several examples of the ‘Hidden Curriculum’ in medical education. Then, Asif concludes by discussing ways to address the ‘Hidden Curriculum’.
