“I was always, always the only black person in any of my classes, and I knew there was more out there. I longed for it.”

In this fun and engaging conversation with longtime friend Brad Szollose, they touch on interracial marriage, relationships, race relations, the comedy industry and the kindness of the late, great Patrice O’Neal.
