Jiggaboo Jones releases “Nigga Night” footage

March 1, 2010 - 9:52 am

Shock comedian “Jiggaboo Jones” tells CityBeat that he’s got photos from the inflammatory Feb. 15 off-campus “Compton Cookout” party, but he won’t release them until the controversy over race and free speech has died down at UC San Diego.

Instead, he has uploaded this video with scenes from a similar “Nigga Nite” party allegedly thrown at University of Southern California, which includes N-bombs, chair-throwing and more African-Americans than you’d expect at an event based on racist stereotypes.

The video also announces Jones’ new website, ComptonCookout.com, which was registered less than a week after the party. The video advertises a new DVD available April 1 that will explain the “do’s and don’ts of throwing a party that everyone will enjoy.”

In the weeks since the party, UCSD has been the site of an uproar over institutional racism. Jones was quick to take credit for the event–his picture appeared on the Facebook invite–but many have doubted whether he was actually involved.

Last week, Jones gave talk radio DJ Roger Hedgecock an extended interview out of character, which you can listen to here. In the interview, he explained that these parties are usually called “Nigga Nights,” but the organizers toned it down to “Compton Cookout” in order to be less controversial. Jones also released a new, longer message in character detailing the events at the party. In both recordings, he details events at the party, including a large number of Filipino attendees and ejecting a couple of people who the organizers felt might get rowdy based on their behavior at a similar party in 2009.

    Um. yeah. This guy had nothing to do with the party. His photo was used on the invite, he saw a screen shot of the invite on the news and decided to make the most of it.

    Just one more reason to laugh at this city and all it’s insecurities. Face it Sandy Eggo, you’re like the little brother to the teenagers drinkin’ beer in a friend’s garage. You’re not cool enough or mature enough to hang out with the rest of America so take your ass on home, pop in a Disney DVD and tell your mommy you love her.

    NOBODY in their right mind gives a flying fuck about Jiggaboo Jones, Nigga Nights, The Compton Cookout, nooses in college libraries or a fake sit in at the chancellor’s office. All you people getting your panties in a twist over this lame shit need to face life. REAL life.
