How does that happen, where are the comedy clubs and things like that. So when I joined in the military, I got stationed in California, I just started hitting up the comedy clubs, I was doing it while I was active duty.” His breakthrough came in 1997 when appeared on BET’s stand up showcase Comic View and he went on to have a stellar career with three Showtime specials, 1 comedy album, and roles in many films.
