I needed a last minute tux for the Directors Guild Awards so I called a fellow comedian who is always dressed well name Buck Ball to guide me through this experience. Buck is so great at what he does he eyeballed in photos and by the time I walked into Bonobos in Century City he had already had the color I wanted and the size I needed all the way to the neck size. As you can tell from the video below, I tried on the tux one time and if fit as if if it was poured on me.
I went with the Traditional Navy (Original Tuxedo Color) with the bowtie instead of a tie because I wanted a conservative look. Check below and if you’re in the Los Angles area and need assistance, message me and I can contact you with BUCK BALL.
Thanks to TV Guide that mentioned Meldrick as a character that they like, also the Chicago Tribune for an extended article about Meldrick. Last but not least, I got a MOTHERF#CKIN MEME!! This is crazy!!! TUNE IN SUNDAYS!!
Here are some red carpet pics of The CHI. This opportunity came out of nowhere having my first co-star role on a major TV network. Thanks to everyone who was involve from casting director all the way to the director all the way to security and especially to the make up department who I spend the most time with. Big shout out to Lena Waithe, Justin Mitchell and Common Sense. It was a great show and a great learning experience and a great staff. Where ever you are in the world check out The CHI on Showtime.

Here are a few pics from my second trip to the Holy Land. We started in Tel Aviv, then drove down to Mitzpe Ramon to be in the dessert and jump in the crater. Driving 160km in the dessert coming from the states is a beautiful thing. From there I drove down to Eilat to snorkel and swim with the dolphins and salt pools of the dolphin reef. Then I drove up to float in the Dead Sea. While floating in the Dead Sea, everything became still and I started to wonder how in the f*ck did I get here? How did some one that grew up in one of the worst cities in Georgia make it to Isreal, or Japan/ London……..Following my instincts is how. It’s scary but it has taking me around the world and I have met some amazing people.
Beautiful Morning in Tel Aviv before our drive to the desert.
Arriving in Mitzpe Ramon we went to the crater first.
The view from our room at the Beresheet Hotel and Resort overlooking the crater! That water was cold as f#ck!
Me and my Motek!!
Also there are wild ibex roaming around in Mitzpe Ramon like stray cats.
Look at the knee boots on the ibex!
For my birthday we did a 6 hour ATV tour in the desert so I got a chance to see the WHOLE crater! It looks like MARS in the crater!
On top of the crater, we were so high you can see a bird go by.
Driving through the Mitzpe Ramon Crater
I got sooooo dust from the drive, look at the dust in my beard.
Koh Somui Villa at the Orchid Hotel in Eilat. Got a chance to go to the Dolphin Reef and swim with the dolphins and float in the salt pools. I went snorkeling at 9am at Snuba beach and was able to spend some time with this amazing octopus. I witnessed it change colors and it was one of the most amazing trippiest sh#t I ever seen!
We made it to the Dead Sea right before sunset. You can actually see the moon in the sky and for some reason the sky and the water was the same color so when I got inside of the water. It looked like was was sitting in infinity. Unbelievable…..so warm, so cold, so amazing. Another TRIPPY experience. I got out of the sea and didn’t need to dry off because the water beaded of my body like a fresh polished car. My skin was oily and glowing. I was itching on the ride back to Tel Aviv but it was worth it.
I performed a 40min set at the Dancing camel in Tel Aviv my last night in town it was Amazing.
This a Pic of Eric Andre and I backstage at FYF. Fun weekend soon.
