reno 911, the boondocks, black dynamite
June 19, 2012
when you dig into a comedian’s past, you often find gritty, turbulent, even dark beginnings. in cedric yarbrough’s case however, the beginnings were quite opposite. cedric grew up in the midwest. enjoyed a bright, sunny, suburban childhood in safe suburban minnesota. came of age surrounded by friendly, welcoming neighbors in the land of 10,000 lakes.
oh, wait. one more thing. he was a jehovah’s witness.
how does a kid emerge from a joyless childhood bereft of birthday parties, celebratory milestones and christmas presents to become a hilarious sketch and improv comic? with a vengeance, that’s how.
a long, cool midwestern tide of burning vengeance.
in harem pants.
join improv and sketch thundercat cedric yarbrough and aisha as they claw through what paradise looks like, the jehovah’s witness art department, auditioning for the boondocks, the kindness of the midwest, being a joyless black family, getting blue paint in your special places, lord of the rings the musical, and how everyone in hollywood is crazy.
plus, cedric has a very unwelcome houseguest, and aisha has amnesia.
girl on guy’s elven cloak of diversion is at the dry cleaners.
