It's something about sex that just smooth you right out.
- I woulda've disagreed until I saw the 40 year old Virgin,
then I'm like maybe.
- No, no, no, no he used to be a nerd.
He used to be like (in high voice)
"Hey dad let's go get some pizza."
And then one day I went on the road for two weeks
and came back I was like let's go get some pizza
and he was like, "Why 'on't you bring me back a slice."
- [Kelly] First of all--
- I said what you get all cool for?

about one of your first gigs?
Actually one of my first jobs was a
I was a cocktail waitress in a comedy club.
- [Deon] Nice. - And I loved it.
I love it, I laughed all day
until the drunk people pissed me off but
but what do you have memories of like your first gigs?
- I used to always forget my jokes
every time I went on stage.
- (laughs) That's a problem.
- Yeah, especially when you get high.
So, I used to be so high that I couldn't remember my jokes
so I used to read 'em off my notepad
and then one day I remembered 'em
and everybody was like, no forget 'em again
and use your notepad.
- Oh my gosh, that's--
- My notepad was funnier than me
and so I just kept doing it.
- I'm just saying that's kind of awesome
that you were like and they were like
no, we love the notepad.
- Yeah, more than you.
(shouts) Where's the notepad?
- You're going to be fine, the older you get
like you've got your notepad you're good.
- I'm a be good when I get older
right I can just put on my glasses with the chain.
- That's fine but this is actually pretty cool,
so you're hosting the American Black Film Festival Honors
- Yes! (cheers)
- [Kelly] So that's amazing.
So what can we expect?
- Man, well what we do is we like to shine light on those
who don't get light shined on them in other festivals
that they have and so what we do is we just honor
our own who don't get that recognition.
- Who maybe get missed over, yeah.
- Yeah absolutely, especially like
a lot of African Americans who really,
put out really good work but they just don't really get
that love so we just sit out there
and just give everybody love that they deserve
and put them on a platform that they wouldn't normally have
so yes, it's going to be a great time there.
- Yeah, and I personally, I personally
always love when comedians host things
because you all get away with so much.
- Yeah, right, right.
- Like you're getting away with so much right now.
- No, I'm going to make sure the room is not bourgeois
everybody sitting up tight, we gon' be loose,
people gon' have their shoes off.
It's going to be really nice.
