Charlotte: Live Show

We hopped in a passenger van and drove to Charlotte for a live podcast at The Charlotte Comedy Zone - not knowing what to expect... This was our first ever live show outside of our home city of Atlanta and we had no idea how the show was going to go. I fired up the c300 and captured the energy before the show. Check out D.C. Young Fly, Chico Bean, Karlous Miller and Darren Brand roasting as the fans walk into the comedy club. 

Darren Brand opens opens up a hilarious podcast sponsored by the good folks at Backwoods. 

It's always extra cool when family shows up to support. My brother Paolo who works as a lawyer in Charlotte stopped by the show and got his laugh on too. 

LA: Hollywood to Inglewood with Karlous Miller

I headed out to the best coast to hit some legendary comedy spot with my dude Karlous Miller. He's definitely one of the funniest people in the world and a national treasure. He hails from Mississippi and lives in Atlanta so when he hits the comedy stages in LA, he brings a whole 'nother energy. From Hollywood to Inglewood, Karlous tears up the stages of LA. 

Karlous works Jay Anthony Brown's comedy club in Inglewood and The Comedy Store in Hollywood.  Lous bumps into comedy legends Tony Rock and Jay Anthony along the way. It all starts at comedian friend Billy Sorrells spot in South Central LA. 

Chicago: New Years with D.C.

When I heard Deray Davis, Michael Blackson, Lil Duval and D.C. Young Fly were doing a New Year's Eve show, I knew this was going to be one dope ass comedy show and I wanted to be there. So I set it up.

I booked the cheapest flight on Spirit. I found thrifty room in China Town. I headed to Chicago. Repping no official media organization, I needed someone to vouch for me once I got to the arena but I couldn't get a hold of anyone. So I did what anyone who was supposed to be there would do...act like I'm supposed to be there. I eventually caught up with D.C. backstage to capture some real moments with Lil Duval before an incredible night.
