My guest this Sunday is Comedian/Writer Darryl Littleton. There are some pretty funny comedians out there now. The really good ones are usually supported by a creative writer behind the scenes that "knows what makes people laugh" as well as what the skills of the "frontman" best fits the jokes he or she is writing. Then there are those who just seem to be a natural, that is, they can write the jokes, they can tell the jokes, AND they understand the differences between a comedian and a comic, and can tell the rest of us. My guest has been in the industry making the people laugh and writing the material for some of the best comedians out there over the last 20+ years. If you've ever watched BET Comic View, you've seen his work. In fact, he has worked as a writer for all of the good ones currently on the Black Comedy Hollywood circuit including Robert Townsend whom he has produced a DVD on the legacy of black comedy with, Cedric the Entertainer, D.L.Hugley, and the late Bernie Mack, just to name a few. In addition, he is a working comedian himself and has an arsenal of his own material including a caricature you know as "D'Militant" a black revolutionary archetype with an attitude and a joke. Welcome to 'Sunday, Mind You'... Mr. Darryl Littleton. He's even authored a book on the history of the black comedian called 'Black Comedians on Black Comedy: How African-Americans Taught Us to Laugh'. You've been warned, he's funny, he's smart, and he KNOWS WTF is REALLY going on.
