I got the chance to interview and hang out with comedian Gary Owen when he came through Hampton Roads last week. You may know him from “Think Like a Man” and “Think Like a Man Too,” he’s also been on Tyler Perry’s House of Pain. He’s a very funny, energetic, yet down to earth guy. I really enjoyed meeting him and even went to see his stand up show while he was in town. Check out the interview below where we talk about him being in movies, going to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s wedding and why he likes “black!” Funny stuff…click play below!!!
I met the very talented Mo’Nique during her visit to Hampton Roads when she came by my show to promote her appearance at the Virginia Beach Funny Bone. I really didn’t know what to expect…I think part of me still sees her as her Academy Award winning character from Precious! LOL! But seriously, she couldn’t have been more genuine and sweet…I was really in awe of what a true professional she is. I get to meet all kinds of people in my line of work and I can sincerely say she is top notch.
Check out the video below to see her interview. She came to the show with her friend and opening act TONE X, and we chatted about her doing the plank challenge, being Mommy’s to boys and she even shared her thoughts on Robin Williams, who coincidentally was the person who presented her the Oscar when she won in 2009. I can’t wait for the next time my path crosses with this amazing lady.
I was hypnotized on TV today…yup HYPNOTIZED! Comedian Rich Guzzi who does “Comedy Hypnosis” was a guest on The Hampton Roads Show, since he’s performing at the Virginia Beach Funny Bone this weekend…and I agreed to go “under!” Just watch the video below… It was the strangest feeling!! When he first had me staring at the light I was thinking this isn’t going to work…but I tried to relax and just let him do his thing. The funny part is when he kinda throws me down in my lap. I kept thinking I can snap out of this at any time (but I didn’t try) and my other thought was, “my hair is all over the place.” HAHA! I was aware of what was happening, and still had my own thoughts, so I do remember what was going on…I don’t know, it was a strange feeling. I did feel a sense of euphora afterwards though…like a breath of fresh air! Check out some of the “play by play” photos from the show!
