I dug down deep in my comedy archives and found a DVD I produced back in 2008: "I’m Not Urban. I’m Urbane.” I’ve re-released it on a plethora of streaming services including Amazon, Google Play, Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes.
I know 2008 was a long time ago. I mean, the first five minutes are about President Obama! It’s delightfully nostalgic and comedically comforting. It’s pre-pandemic and pre-housing crisis. It’s like, “Wow, remember when we had hope?”
We were so much younger then.
It was interesting to hear jokes I’ve forgotten, rewritten, and one or two that I should probably never, ever do again. But that’s the beauty of the craft and the risk of immortalizing your work in a recording. I’m proud to re-share it all.
Big shout out to New Media Comedy who patiently remastered all the tracks and brought the album up to code for digital release. I’m incredibly grateful.
So if you need comedy love from the way back, search me up and give my album a listen.
Thanks to Madison Theatre at Molloy College for including me in a recent episode of it's podcast, Madison Voices, discussing comedy with Shaun Eli Breidbart, Jim Mendrinos, and Karen Bergreen.
I’ve had people say or insinuate to me my entire life what kind of Black Person they think I am or should be. And now here comes Joe Biden.
He said, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
Shut up, Joe! Just STFU!
My Cat: Meow?
ME: Yes, I’m eating potato chips.
ME: No, you can’t have any.
ME: Because cats don’t like potato chips.
ME: What do you mean "cite my sources?" How about the receipts from all this prescription cat food?
ME: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.
ME: I know. I know it’s not your fault. Here, have a potato … hey!
ME: Yes. Very funny. You almost had me. Do want a chip or not?
ME: What? Cats don’t like potato chips? Now you're being catty... oh.
