Searching for Richard Pryor
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Richard Pryor and Jamie Masada at Laugh Factory's Comedy Camp, 2002 Word is out that the casting net is circling to find someone to play the late, great Richard Pryor in a biopic. Hopefully, the focus will be on finding someone who can capture not only Richard's stand-up skills but his richly humanizing personal life. As great as he was on stage, his offstage actions made a believer of a teenager who was celebrating his first night as a comedy club owner back in 1979. It was a first encounter I will never forget. I had no idea what I was doing back then. I was naïve and gullible, and while English was my second language, I spoke it like it was my third or fourth. I loved comedy and opened the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard with a little help from friends. At the time, the comics were on strike because they were not being paid for their work in the other existing clubs. It was my plan to split half of the proceeds from the door with the comics. What I didn't expect was that ...

It Isn't Just About Chappelle
Huffington Post - over 4 years
This isn't just about Chappelle. It was bordering on an argument now. I felt my muscles getting tight as I tried to keep myself from yelling out in frustration. We were stomping across the parking lot to our cars, much earlier than expected after Dave Chappelle decided to leave the stage at the Comcast theater. I went with my friend and a couple but the conversation we were having was as though we had left two different theaters. Was I crazy? Was I the only one who had seen the way the night escalated? My friend and I were one of the few Black people at the Chappelle show in Hartford and it was quickly becoming clear to me, that was an important fact. The couple that attended with us, Ray and Hannah, were White. "He's a comedian, what did he expect?" Ray asked, over emphasizing his words the way he did when he was trying not to slur. "Respect." I damn near snarled... I pointed out that there was a larger racial context, that a crowd of majority White patrons yelling at a singl...
