REVOLT TV is nine comedians in on its new stand-up comedy series, "Funny AF," and it's not going to pump the breaks on the jokes anytime soon. The series is produced and directed by programming and content veteran Tony McCuin, whose 20-year background of creatively insightful sports and entertainment has solidified his reputation in the industry. McCuin's work includes the NAACP Image Awards, BET's Sunday Best and more. Now, he's aiming to bring the spotlight to 20 talented underdogs who are one joke away from stardom. Brandon Black is the unofficial-official #HoodHumor king reigning straight out of Los Angeles, who continues to sell out The Hollywood Improv, and he is next to shine on the REVOLT Studios stage.
Quickly making a name for himself, Black has garnered online and onstage attention as one of the best performers in the city. Known as a brilliantly quirky comic and witty storyteller, you can learn more about the rising star and enjoy "The Fat Community" skit by him below:
Brandon Black is a L.A. native -- born and raised near Florence and Normandie in the South Central section of the city. He first realized he was funny while roasting classmates during lunch at Westchester High School. Even though he was a natural comedian, he was focused on music and didn't pursue stand-up comedy until many years later after running into a friend outside a club who encouraged him to do an open mic. Some of his influences are the late Richard Pryor, Bernie Mac, and Patrice O'Neal. Other influences include Dave Chapelle and Mike Epps. You can catch Brandon at various comedy clubs around the city and on Instagram @IamBrandonBlack.
"Funny AF" airs on Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. ET. Have you missed past episodes? Find bonus clips and more information on the show below:
