WTF The worst comedian ever
9 June 2006 | by hoyj4111See all my reviews

What were you guys watching, this guy is weak. How is he famous? If you're a brain dead dolt, it might appeal to you. Some of his bits were painfully recycled by other comedians sets. I seriously didn't crack a smile watching him hack it as a comic. And the movies he stars in suck *ss. Unoriginal, ignorant, wannabe Pryor. I'm am now dumber from watching him. I don't get it, did they edit out the funny? He's like a beady eyed rat with a sloping forehead and big teeth. And for those that said this is a family flick, what kind of ghetto family are you raising. That kind of thinking is what is wrong with society and I feel sorry for who you are raising. Ignorance spawns ignorance, I guess. Oh yeah clubsi ownz joo!
