Get to studying and do your comedy homework!


I have been inspired, folks. I have been inspired by some slammin' comedy I saw last night at Brooklyn Comedy Company! [MySpace | Blog ]

Slammin' I tell, ya!

I even got a chance to speak with my new favorite comedian, Baron Vaughn. [His blog] (If you don't know, you better ask somebody!) The man is as sharp as a tack people! He's Chris Rock on steroids!

Anyway, Baron was kind enough to give me homework for the weekend. He gave me a list of up-and-coming black comedians to pay attention to. These comedians are changing the face of black comedy! I'm proud to place their links here on my blog. Feast on these for the weekend! Tootle-loo!

When looking for comedy I often just go hang out at the mall after not washing for about a week. Then walk to the food court and ask people while thy are eating if they have a napkin I can use because the bathroom is out of TP and I have an ugly butt rocket that looking to make a splash.
Or i just watch CNN News, nothing funnier than reality TV!

Actually, I would love to see Bill Cosby's new stuff.
I'm hearing he has two and a half hours of absolutely new material and that it has EVERYONE rolling on the floor laughing.

(I reckon y'all can almost tell how old I am because I didn't write ROFL....
and well.....you'de be right.)
