Memorable Quotes:
  • "Obviously for actors and entertainers, we're all egomaniacs, and there is nothing that serves the ego better than being in control. With stand-up, it's like you're the writer, the director, the producer, and the star, whereas with camera work you're saying somebody else's words and acting out somebody else's vision to a degree. With stand-up, you rise, you fall... it's all you." --Aries Spears

I also saw him on an episode of The Rerun Show. He played Wheezy Jefferson, but IMDB.com never credited him.
