I recently performed at Flappers for the first time in a long time. I was booked in the yoohoo room on a Tuesday evening. So you know what that means? That means not a soul in the audience.
Other than a guest that I brought who was smashing hot wings… I was in a great mood despite knowing this show doomed from the start.
Right when that “time to go” feeling started to set in. The manager, who has always looked out for me in the past, comes up and invites me to perform in the main room. Normally this wouldnt be a big deal but today I elated but for multiple reasons.
1) I didn’t waste may gas
2) I got to perform in front a large crowd
3) The owner was in the room and I was sure he secretly hated me for stunt I pulled years ago.
I killed, it felt like it was a great chance to re-establish some valuable relationships. I also caught up with an old friend there who planted an awesome idea in my head. I feel like I am a genius and with a positive and friendly push I can accomplish great feats. Stay tuned
Sometimes, you drive really far out for a gig only to be hit with disappointment die to the lack of audience, lack of professionalism or just general “sketchy” vibe due to the location being subpar.
Then sometimes, you drive far out and you experience one of the best gigs of your career. Malibu Playhouse is a dream gig!! The stage was spacious, the host was on point and the other comics on the show were epic. Loved the location. The audience were full of locals the gave you an ovation that made you feel as of you’re shooting a comedy special.
I look forward to coming back. The best moment of the night (for me) was watching a comic friend of mine named Fizaa eat the bean filled breakfast burrito 30 mins before her set. I’m sure you can figure what came next!
One of the most memorable nights of my comedy career thus far. To headline this club is a monumental moment. Thanks to all the support I recieved from friends I’ve made along the way in this journey. My openers were dope AF. They held it down (as I ran late). I can’t wait to see what’s next. I feel like I will join the lineage of the greats one day. For now I’m just happy to be in NYC …
Sometimes you perform in the comfort of Hollywood and sometimes you perform in KKK country. It’s very rarely you get the Hollywood feel while being far away from it. This room was definitely worth the drive. What surprised me was the number of people that actually came out to watch me perform.
I throw these invites out not really knowing what to expect. To my surprise, I had a fair number of people there for me so I made sure brought “it”. By it I mean, my emotional baggage. So now I love The Write-Off Room and I decided to do a better job NOT avoiding Woodland Hills.
I had the chance to cut loose with this experimental game show hosted by CJ Kelly. At first I was nervous because comedy shows with themes can be tricky and annoying. Once everyone was on board we had along of fun. It basically devolved into a roast session. I look forward to doing it again.
Busy, busy, busy… I can’t say enough about Crack Em Up Thursday. If I am in town, I always make sure I stop through even if I am not performing. Welp, that was not the case for this thursday. I had some stuff to get off of my chest.
I remember last time I made the host nervous cause I was super tired and my face is pretty neutral when I am tired. So he was pretty offended but he got me back by f*@%ing up my intro. We laugh about it now!
I had the pleasure of performing at the Hollywood Improv last night. If these walls could talk.. Something about the lighting and the piano on stage puts me in a jazzy mood. I’ve spent many nights waiting til the show was over just to play the keys.
This stage is where I learned to loosen up. I used to host a mic here and I used to do the late night rolling shows so often. I’ve discovered one of my best bits while “figuring it out” up there. My first comedy TV spot was on that stage. All of that comes rushing to me when I am up there.
Back at the Comedy Store, I’ve probably performed here more than any place in the world. Whenever I’m on a show there, it makes me feel like I’m clockin’ into work. This particular show is always great, and always sold out. I just gotta remember to be on time because judging by the flyer they’ll expect me to be late.
I have been blessed to be apart of a dope show called Splendid Radio on Pharcyde TV. I’m co-hosting along side Schmooche and DJ Oggy while Bootie Brown, of the Pharcyde, holds everything together. I’ve been working with my brothers for a few months now. Oggy provides the good music, we have interesting guests, and Schmooche kills it everytime with the foodie-isms. Feel free to check us out at:
I recently had the pleasure of attending Governor’s Ball in NYC. I know it sounds like an elegant affair but it’s actually New York’s version of Coachella. I really enjoyed the experience, I wasn’t familiar with majority of the acts. I just watched Lil Wayne, Tyler The Creator and (if you know me) my favorite rapper Nas.
There were 4 major stages and people crawling all over each other. It was massive. The last day everyone have to evacuate due to a heavy storm that started during Nas’ set. (Which seemed like special effects at first)
I was inspired while I was backstage, I one day hope that my words are powerful enough to impact the masses. I want to uplift and empower to the degree that 15,000 people are chanting along with me. Spreading my wisdom to each other, while popping mollies.
