Huell aka Lavell Crawford: Has Anyone Ever Mistaken You For Comedian Bruce Bruce?

His retorts were hilarious. You have to remember he’s a proven stand-up comic first, and an actor second. And when it comes to food, yes please to thirds!

Ari Shaffir in Hot Water For Bullying (Fat Shaming) One-Armed Comedienne Damienne Merlina; She Responds!

I would need to see the whole bit in context, not spliced up to really give my full reaction. And I’m no Ari fan, that’s for sure. I do think he’s a hack comic. I just think most controversies are amusing on *some* level. Also worth noting, that comedians have the worst sense of humor, when the joke’s on them.

White Man Attacked on STL Train After Being Asked About Mike Brown (VIDEO)

White Man Attacked on STL Train After Being Asked About Mike Brown (VIDEO)

From this angle the victim is a Jon Hein doppelganger.

The victim, 43 told KMOV a man in his early 20’s asked to use his cell phone. When the victim declined to let the suspect use his cell phone, the suspect sat next to him and asked what he thought about the “Mike Brown situation.”
When the victim responded that he had not thought much about it, the suspect began punching him in the face, according to the police report.

Note: if you’re a white person that lives in STL and you aren’t up on the Mike Brown news, that’s sorta on you! You have to know the right things to say at the VERY least, when you’re faced with an impromptu deposition on the matter.

The Creator of The Wire David Simon Sits Down With President Barack Obama (VIDEO)

The Creator of The Wire David Simon Sits Down With President Barack Obama (VIDEO)

I feel like 5 people sent me this. Duh! Of course it would be on my radar. Did you know that David Simon’s wife is an author and on her webpage it had her email address but with the huge disclaimer of: “Do not email me about David Simon, or The Wire.” Lol.

Did you know I used to work for a software company whose software was featured on the later seasons of The Wire? Except at that point, no one was watching The Wire (this was before binge viewing was invented), so no one cared. If only… in hindsight I probably could have got on the horn with David Simon and offered him some software assistance! Damn!

Did you know, I have interviewed Bubbles from The Wire? And that means Bubbles is my boy: Andre Royo. Yep. That’s about it as far as my connections to The Wire. That and Baltimore is the funnest city to party in. I highly recommend it. Way better than DC when it comes to that. People don’t have their heads fully enclosed in their assholes in Bmore, like they are in DC.

Comedian @MazJobrani Sits Down at Harvard University To Discuss Humor Transcending Political Differences [Video]

Comedian Maz Jobrani Sits Down at Harvard University To Discuss Humor Transcending Political Differences [Video]

The following comments don’t have anything to do with this video in specific–it’s just an observational rant. Comedians get a reputation of being crazy-ass, out-of-control, substance abusing people. And there aren’t that many successful touring comedians in the world. And the ones that do tour and I do interview, are usually on the wagon and have all of their crazy years behind them. They’re all pretty much well-put-together guys. I am more fu*ked up than them and they’re professional comics. But it all makes sense when you think about it.

You can’t have issues and still have to fly across the country every week for gigs. You have to wake up early–not only for flights, but to do media and podcasts and press for your tour and comedy career. You gotta be on your A-game. That’s why most professional working comics aren’t crazy dudes unfortunately. They’re pretty reserved actually. But I can only imagine if Maz Jobrani was at his current level of success now, when he was just a young man, starting out (probably still with hair), and he was running through women. His penis would be the welcoming party for the United Nations because minority chicks would be all over him. His walk of shame would involve walking you to your car after he’s done eating shish kabob and rice with you. But it’s not just comedians. I’ve interviewed pr0n chicks and what do you know? It’s the same exact thing! Most of them are pretty much business women [that might give you a lap dance at the end of the night for an Andrew Jackson]. They’ve never invited me back to their hotel rooms. Comedians aren’t inviting me to any after parties. Maybe it’s me. But it’s not. Pretty much, most successful people do their jobs and then go the fuck back home. End of genius rant!
