Zitat des Tages von Lil Rel Howery:
I thought I would hate New York, but I love New York. I almost hate to say that being from Chicago.
I think Eddie Murphy is the greatest comedian. I do think that Richard Pryor is the Godfather, but Eddie Murphy, in my opinion, has every comedic category in his arsenal. He can roast you. He can freestyle. He can host. He was LeBron James before we even saw LeBron James.
I used to watch 'Last Comic Standing' with my mom before she passed. So when I got that red envelope, I was extremely emotional.
The biggest thing is we need to stop acting like racism don't exist.
My comedy grows as I grow as a person.
There's a difference between delivering real funny and just silly funny.
I'm a hip-hop head, but hip-hop actually introduced me to other genres of music because I started to wonder where a lot of these samples came from. So I fell in love with Bobby Womack or Willie Hutch because I wanted to know where those samples came from.
You have these kids trying to make these grown up decisions because nobody is talking to them. We're talking at them, but we're not listening to them.
Some of the scariest movies I've seen are not considered horror movies, like 'Gone Girl.' That movie scared me. I can't watch it again.
Directing is so dope to me, man, 'cause it doesn't necessarily have to be your material. You're making someone else's material come to life. There's something amazing about that.
My friends were the class clowns, but I was the one in class doing Michael Jordan or teachers for no reason. I've always been amazing at impersonating real people, too, rather than celebrities.
I'm just saying, and I'm going to say it enough times: I want to play Bernie Mac.
That's the biggest thing: be kind and be original.
I know I'm being biased about Chicago, but I think Chicago got the most talented people in the world.
I can't wait for the rest of my career to meet these young writers and filmmakers so that I can produce and push a lot of their stories out there.
Let me tell you, there's nothing like pulling up to Fox Studios bumping Jeezy in your Mercedes.
I was a huge Wu-Tang fan, along with Crucial Conflict, along with Do or Die along with Mobb Deep.
I want to do more films - not just comedies, because I really want to show my range.
