Following Conan O’Brien
Its always tough following a beast like Conan because they set the bar very high. But these spots are the ones that make you stronger. Thanks Super Serious Show, I just added another stripe to my jacket!!

Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening
CHECK THIS OUT!!
This is a personal story not to many of y’all know about that I wanted to share. People around me growing always wondered why I acted a certain way or I never shared too much about what was going on mentally and emotionally on the inside. Here is a JOURNEY of what some 15yr to 18yr olds dealt with coming up.
This story will air this Friday on ComedyCentral at Midnight.
Thanks This Is Not Happening Presents for letting me share this with you all.

Suited Comedy Show
I was supposed to wear a suit to this show but because of prior obligations I didn’t. Quincy Jones and Baron Vaughn gave me sh#t for it though.
Im in DC at a NEW Venue
Join me at the DraftHouse Comedy Theater in DC Friday April 1st / Saturday 2nd at 9 and 11pm. The venue is the first comedy club-like space to open in the city since the Riot Act Comedy Theater closed in 2012.
Since Greg Godbout bought and renovated the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse in 2005, the venue has built a reputation for bringing rising comics to D.C. before they become famous — names like Amy Schumer, Trevor Noah and Kumail Nanjiani. Now he’s expanded into the DC area with the Drafthouse Comedy Theater in DC!
Whats So Funny?

Last night I found out that Dick Gregory might be performing at Comedy Store. I immediately rushed down to see if it was true. I mean this guy is definitely a living legend. He has one most original voice in comedy ever. In the sixties Dick Gregory was addressing social issues in a comedic way and by addressing his hard-hitting to white audiences, he gave a comedic voice to the rising Civil Rights Movement. He abandoned comedy to become and activist before I was born. So I figured if I could just see the legend in the flesh that would be great. This would one of my greatest comedy memories ever.
As I enter into the dark main room some guys are walking towards me to exit. As my eyes adjust to the darkness I catch a glimpse of someone famous approaching from out of focus. I am thinking to myself, “ Is that Mos Def?!! He must have dyed his beard.” Then my eyes came into focus and it was the man of the hour. Walked right by me!! I was excited. My internal dialogue was like “go shake his hand” but my mind started playing back every time I met a hero something bad happens. Especially when I meet other famous comedians. But I told my internal dialogue to “stop being a p#ssy and go get that Dick.” So I went out to where he was and puffed my chest out and said in in a deep soft pitch voice (Because I was nervous, the air in my chest wanted to meet him more than I did so it rushed out as soon as I opened my mouth.), “ Excuse me Sir, do you mind if I take a photo?” He was like “I don’t mind”, in a hurry up I have a show tone. Someone volunteered to take the pictures that apparently have never taken pictures of dark-skinned people before because he didn’t turn on the flash. So Dick Gregory and I stood there waiting on the flash. To be completely honest, I got a little uncomfortable holding a man that long. The feeling went from “this man is a legend” to “I can feel his shoulder blade”. By the time I said, “is the flash is on?” the moment was over and I had another weird moment with someone I admire. I cannot believe I had a chance to see and touch a living legend last night. I also cant believe how f#ck up this picture came out either.
