I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault- they watched the foot come towards their face.
[on being asked if there were any topics he would not joke about] Uh, yes. Rape. Rape would be one of them. I also stay clear of homosexuality or anything dealing with that right now, because it's such a sensitive topic in today's times. There are words I've used in the past that I wouldn't use now because of the attention those words get.
[on discovering his comic side] I was probably around eleven. My mom was about to whup me, whup me with a belt. I said something she couldn't help but laugh at, and I thought I might be funny. Cause if I could stop a whupping with comedy, I'm doing the right thing.
A reputation as a hard worker is a good reputation to have. It's also about being professional and very loyal to the people who put me here, which would be my fans. I feel like I have a job to do, like I constantly have to reinvent myself. The more I up the ante for myself, the better it is in the long run. I try to interact with my fans as much as possible. It's good that the person I'm being onstage isn't really an act. It's really me.
Here's the thing. We do a movie with a predominantly black cast and it's put in a category of being a black film. When other movies are done with a predominantly white cast, we don't call them a white film. I'm trying to remove the stigma off things they call black films.
[on his relationship with his father] My dad said I was supposed to be on drugs. I was like "Dad, shut up," but then I thought about it and, and it was stupid, but it made sense. He was saying that basically he was my example to never go down that road.
I don't like to alienate anybody with my comedy. I don't want to disengage audiences. I want to appeal to everyone and take them minds away from their issues with a lot of laughter. It's about providing some escape.
