A QUICK INTRODUCTION ABOUT WHAT YOUR COMPANY DOES/YOUR VALUES/MISSION.
At The Jazzy Comedy Show we are a eclectic group of artists including musicians and comedians that perform throughout California in shows, street comedy, online content to bring joy and human connection back to the forefront of our human experience.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
I am from Detroit, Michigan. Background in political campaigns and elections for 15 years. I chose comedy production because of the death and pain I saw over the years in political work. I wanted to spread light and not darkness on the planet.
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME A YEAR OR TWO, WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF?
Keep pushing as I am doing now, have faith in yourself. Believe that your seeds will grow and don’t get complacent trying to serve someone else’s dream in a job. Believe in yourself!
WHAT PROBLEM DOES YOUR BUSINESS SOLVE?
I give artists a platform to share their gifts with the world, and reverse depression, suicidal thoughts, and isolation bred from a broken society.
WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR BUSINESS?
To bring joy, love, and healing through voice connection, smiles, and storytelling. Being from Detroit, I have experiences that many people don’t have, and it’s inspiring to be alive and show people that can make it. I was born to a 15 year old mother who dropped out of school, and she pushed me to graduate with two degrees, work in DC, with multiple State Governments, and to remember to love first. She would tell me without love, nothing is possible. The Jazzy Comedy Show is a seed of love for the world to enjoy its fruit.
WHAT IS YOUR MAGIC SAUCE?
“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings, nor lose the common touch.” – Rudyard Kipling.
God has gifted me with a voice and energy that people are attracted to and want to follow. I have used this gift in college to run multiple organizations, and as a young man to pass laws in Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, and California. I can get into any room and talk with anyone from the President to the homeless person. I win and lose with the same energy, and trust the Universe to walk everything in my favor. My magic is patience in the storm, virtue as the norm. Winning is just a part of the storm.
WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE?
I want to have my own Theatre/Club on Hollywood BLVD that promotes 300 shows a year for the public promoting new and seasoned artists. I want my media company to be one of the largest media companies that bring on new artists on earth.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’VE FACED SO FAR?
My mother dying last summer was a big blow to my spirit. It took me a little time to process the grief and bounce back.
HOW DO PEOPLE GET INVOLVED/BUY INTO YOUR VISION?
