Here's a bitchy theory that I might believe in: Straight men usually aren't very socially intuitive thinkers, so they rarely relate to comic performers who don't, to a certain degree, resemble them. I notice in standup and on Twitter that a majority of straight male comics build their fanbase by specifically proving they relate to their fans, who are largely also straight and male. This, I feel, is the opposite tactic of the comics who are more often adored by gay men and straight women. We tend to like standout performers who represent themselves first and seem to say, "F*ck you if you don't relate to me." We value independence over like-mindedness, and that's why defiant personalities like Madonna, Kathy Griffin, and Bette Davis can be catnip to many of us. (I certainly subscribe to all three of those dames.)

The acclaimed A&E crime drama series stars Laz Alonso (Avatar) and Domenick Lombardozzi (TV’s The Wire) as two veteran U.S. Marshals who have an unorthodox approach to their work. They give four fugitives an offer: Get out of prison and track down escaped convicts in exchange for a reduced sentence. But the question is, when the team are out, will they work for their freedom or go on the run themselves?
Created by Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead (TV’s Prison Break), the television show also stars Malcolm Goodwin (Crazy On the Outside), Serinda Swan (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Jimmi Simpson (Date Night) and Brooke Nevin (TV’s Worst Week).
