Having the Time of My Life

Review: Marlon Wayans, “Woke-ish” on Netflix
Marlon may not be the first to notice that President Trump treats the White House like a reality TV competition, or even that “Donald Trump is the Flavor Flav of white people.” He probably does win a “too soon” award, however, for his impression of Wendy Williams faintin... [Read More]

Review: Eddie Griffin, “Undeniable,” on Showtime
One of my friends says Eddie Griffin is his favorite comedian. He doesn’t put Griffin in his all-time top five, but still, cites Griffin as his fave and his own inspiration for getting into stand-up comedy. I don’t see the same things in Griffin as my friends do, but after watching Unden... [Read More]
