Happy February! Here’s me on mediocre relationships, why Hallmark needs to diversify its Valentine’s Day offerings, & the racial utility of the palm tree. It’s been a minute since I posted a straight up stand-up clip (vs. storytelling, character work, or presentation) hope you enjoy!

Was honored & thrilled to participate in the pilot show of You’ve Crossed The Line an exciting multi-media evening of standup, panel, game show, & audience discussion at Salve Regina University this past Wednesday.
Organized by Teja Arboleda & Deb Farrar-Parkman the night highlighted race, religion, identity & how we can use humor to both expose and bridge the gaps in our own personal understanding and comfort levels in those areas. It was an evening of honesty, openness, & acceptance and, most of all: it was hilarious. Featuring some of my favorite comics from Boston and New York as well as guest headliner Rain Pryor who wrote the lauded memoir Jokes My Father Never Taught Me: Life, Love, and Loss with Richard Pryor.
Check out this NPR interview that Teja & Deb did about the show!

As Black History Month comes to a close, this one goes out to anybody who was ever told “You aren’t black enough” or “You act white”. F that.
With a little help from Stefan Urquelle I just want to say: never judge anyone until you’ve heard their story.
Recorded at a show commemorating the 20th anniversary of Stefan Urquelle’s debut episode on Family Matters.
