When I was 14 my mom took me to an art house movie theater to see Hollywood Shuffle. It is probably no surprise that it changed my life and had a HUGE impact on me as both a comedian and as a Black man. I'm in Miami for the #ABFF, and I just ran into Robert Townsend. And he said, "I love how your mind works." Then I promptly said, "I'd love to pick your ear sometimes." I meant "pick your brain", proving my mind was starstruck. #HollywoodShuffle
