GO BANG! Magazine: Where did you grow up and spend your childhood?

Marcos Luis:  Aaahhh, that question! I was actually born in Nashville, TN. We then moved to the Pittsburgh are of PA and then went to boarding school, so I spent my childhood In those places.

GO BANG! Magazine: At what age did you realize that you wanted to be a professional actor involved in stage plays, film and television, and describe that moment to our readers.

Marcos Luis: I grew up singing, dancing, and acting from the time I was born. I think I was doing it in the womb! (You’ll have to ask my mother that one). I was in talent shows and the school plays, and hosting shows as a kid, so I guess I knew….but really didn’t know for sure then . It wasn’t until college that I decided for sure to be an actor. I remember meeting and talking to a then recent graduate of my alma mater , Northwestern University , named Harry Lennox (“Blacklist, The Five Heartbeats “) who returned to the University to encourage a group of students to pursue our dreams, and that it really clicked for me to do this as a career.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe the opportunities for minorities in television and film?

Marcos Luis: Right now we are at a fantastic and pivotal point in the Film and Industry. Studios are listening to the call for Diversity and Inclusion for Black and Brown people in front of the cameras as well as behind and are making changes . We are creating content, producing, and allocating our funds to make, direct, and star in our own works . Our stories are being told and heard. Opportunities are increasing but we still have work to do on all fronts.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’re also a singer/musician with your own unique sound. How would you describe your voice, the Marcos Luis sound, and also what instrument(s) do you play?

Marcos Luis: The “Marcos Sound” is smooth and soulful. By I mean it comes from the soul and truth, just like my acting, and dance. “Issavibe” for sure. I started playing instruments when I was young. I started on woodwinds: the flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax… then on to upright bass, and electric bass. Lately I’ve been hitting on some percussion with bongos..

GO BANG! Magazine: A man of multiple talents, you’re also a producer. As a producer, what types of films are you interested in making?

Marcos Luis: I’m interested in making films with good, good stories. Every genre is fair game. Making films is a different learning experience each time, problem solving, staying on budget, schedules, locations, etc. The light at the end of the tunnel is the story you present, feeling good about the end product , and also how others perceive your work.

GO BANG! Magazine: For our readers that may not be familiar with the duties of a Producer, can you please explain what producers do and what you find most interesting about producing?

Marcos Luis: A film producer is a person who oversees film production. Either employed by a production company or working independently, producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting the script by the writing, directing , editing ; and arranging financing. There are different types such as Associate, Executive, and Line . Sometimes you wear multiple hats depending on how large and the budget of a project.

GO BANG! Magazine: There’s still more to you, being the Renaissance man that you are. You’re also an award-winning host and photographer. How did you get involved in photography and are you a professional or a hobbyist?

Marcos Luis: Hahaha, well, Photography to me is an extension of being an artist, how you view things, capturing it them in a truthful way, a beautiful way, or whatever the goal is. I started photography as a hobby, and then started shooting professional events, then was enlisted to shoot and document an Humanitarian expedition to Colombia, South America with www. Healing the Children.org , where I received an Award and had the honor of singing our country’s National Anthem live for thousands of people.

GO BANG! Magazine: Not surprisingly, you’re also an entrepreneur as founder of 3SB Theatre Co LLC Theatre and Entertainment Production Company. Please inform our reader about your company, its mission, and some of the projects you’ve done.

Marcos Luis: The mission is to create art with a purpose to shine a positive light on the Community. 3SB Theatre Company has not only sponsored International Artists for work here in the USA , but has created a few web series, sold out stage productions, and of course, the OneMicNite™️ Show.

GO BANG! Magazine: Being a creative person, as well as a businessman myself, I can relate to you creating your own live artist showcase and open mic event, called “OneMicNite” in New York City. For our readers that may not be familiar with it, please explain what the show is, how long it has been in existence and what its mission is.

Marcos Luis: OneMicNite™️ Is “NYC’s Best & Favorite Artist Showcase”. It’s been around for 14 years plus with its #LiveSeries performance shows. It’s been the start and home of many amateur artists, Indie Bands, as well as Grammy Award winning Artists. Starting in NYC’ Greenwich Village, with me as the Host and creator , it’s mission was to provide a space for a home to connect, perform, and network in all areas of the arts. We have held fundraisers for many other charitable organizations through performances of our artists such as Breast Cancer Walk, Women’s Prison Association, and AIDS Walk NYC. You can find out more at http://www.OneMicNite.com

GO BANG! Magazine: You studied comedy improve at Chicago’s own famed Comedy Sportz and dance training at the world-renowned Giordano Dance Center. Have you pursued a professional career in dancing and comedy? If so, please tell us about that and if not, why not?

Marcos Luis: For me knowing all areas of the Arts are important for balance, marketability, and to be well rounded. I’ve been on Comedy Improve Troupes and certainly have done Dance Shows in my career. My first professional Show which I did while still in college was called Pecong , a Caribbean version of the Greek Classic Madea , choreographed by T.C. Carson (Living Single Tv Show), I was a dancer and the Show won several Chicago Jeff Award. The Show was at Victory Gardens Theatre.

GO BANG! Magazine: Over the years, you’ve had national commercials, print campaigns, and appearances in popular prime time TV shows. Are there any broadcasts in particular that you can recall that may refresh our reader’s memory, so that they can connect that with you?

Marcos Luis: Mmmm Chicagoans may know me as The “Illinois Vehicle” commercial guy, which ran for many many years there. Three -four years ago you may have seen the “Madam President” editorial print campaign for designer Elie Tahari clothing line which was in every major publication, ad, billboard which I did along with supermodel Shlomit Malke. And of course.. the infamous “Sex and the City” Episode…

GO BANG! Magazine: What is your ultimate goal in the entertainment industry?

Marcos Luis: My ultimate goal is to continue to enlighten, inspire, tell stories through any art medium I can.

GO BANG! Magazine: Who inspires or motivates you?

Marcos Luis: So may people inspire me in so many ways. People who have had hard journeys and are resilient. People who do the same thing as I do. People who do different things than I do so I can learn from that . It all motivates me to be better, enjoy the experiences of life, and be thankful along the way. There is no competition, there is room for everyone on this journey. That motivates me.

GO BANG! Magazine: Are you currently working on anything or would you like to mention anything that you’d like our readers to check out?

Marcos Luis: Coming up next, I’ll be in an Off Broadway Show called ‘Edin’ written by a brilliant writer/artist named Marcus Harmon. Look out for me in two animated film projects as a voice actor , and definitely check out my Podcast: OneMicNite Podcast with Marcos Luis which is available on Apple podcasts wherever you download podcasts. Season 2 starts after the New Year tackling Social issues that affect Our Community and personal inspiring interviews of Artists’ journeys. www.OneMicNite.Podbean.com

GO BANG! Magazine: In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

Marcos Luis: Yes, this pandemic took everyone by surprise. The key for me was to 1) Be Safe and 2) Be Flexible and 3) Create 4) Gratitude Safety first, for sure, then be flexible with your Life in the day to day actions . Next, create new ways of thinking, to enhance your situation finance by learning as much as possible. Lastly, be thankful for everyone and the things you have. Simplicity is the key. www.MarcosLuis.com

Comedian and actress Sheree Luckett has been featured on B.E. T. Comic View, Def Comedy Jam, 106 and Park, is one of the hottest female comics on the rise. A Chicago native, Sheree is the official host of “Fallout Funny Fridays” every other Friday of the month at several different locations. Sheree grew up on the South Side of Chicago in the Englewood community and attended Robeson and Fenger Academy high schools. This is where she learned to deal with regality on an everyday basis and has always used humor as a way to deal with life’s ups and downs.

Sheree is a true professional and she steers the audience to see that diversified side of comedy when she speaks on womanhood, relationships, family life and men of course. She is brutally honest, and very tactful in her “no holds” delivery. Her quick wit and energetic performance is what captures the audience and this completes the fusion of her magnetic delivery on stage.

Sheree is one of a kind and has the pleasure to work with phenomenal performers such as Monique, Chris Rock, Sheryl Underwood, Lavelle Crawford, Shawn Wayans, Rudy Ray Moore, Bruce Bruce, D.L. Hughley, Adele Givens, Ms. Laura Hayes, Thea Vidale, Joe Torrey, Earthquake and the late and great Bernie Mac, just to name a few.

Sheree Luckett currently resides in Chicago, IL and has been keeping it real for crowds across the country for over 20 years and was recently the host of “Super Silly Sunday” in Harvey, IL as well as “Clowning” in Chicago, IL from 2017-2019.

Currently, Sheree is the official host of “Fallout Funny Fridays” at the Bracket Room in Chicago, IL and will continue to spread the laughter everywhere she goes touching all she comes into contact with. Sheree Luckett is no amateur to the stage and looks forward to keeping it “Funny for Life”.

GO BANG! Magazine: When did you know that you were funny?

Sheree Luckett: When all of my classmates in junior high would tell me so.

GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

Sheree Luckett: I was watching “Def Comedy Jam” with some friends and family and everyone was like, “you should be on TV with those comedians for real, because you’re just as funny.” So one night, a friend of my brothers came over with a flyer for an “open mic night” at a local comedy club and stated I should go for it. I went and signed up to give it a try and I did very well, to my surprise, for my little five minutes of fame. I was and still am addicted to the microphone ever since. I knew the stage is where I belonged.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

Sheree Luckett: My humor is for everyone who loves to laugh. I steer towards relationship issues, having children, as well as things that let me relate in a more edgy sense. I’m like kicking it with your favorite homegirl, who’s going to keep it real with you at all times, all the while keeping you laughing.

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

Sheree Luckett: I am who I am unapologetically. Once you’ve been in my presence, I always keep you wanting more.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve done some acting as well. What is it about acting that attracts you and are you still pursuing that area of entertainment?

Sheree Luckett: Yes, I love acting! It’s very fun and entertaining to both me and the audience. I’ve done a couple of plays and commercials. I love acting because it gives you the freedom to become someone else and experience a whole other life without completely leaving your own.

GO BANG! Magazine: What advice would you give to an aspiring comic trying to break into comedy?

Sheree Luckett: To go to as many “open mic nights” and study other comedians in order to see how they go about their presentations, delivery and how to capture the audience, as well as keep the audience’s attention. Definitely learn as much as you can about the entertainment business, from the business stand point as well.

GO BANG! Magazine: How hard is it for a woman to be successful in comedy?

Sheree Luckett: I’d say it’s much harder on a woman than the average male comedian. This is due to the fact that women are held to a much higher standard when it comes to speaking in general. So you know if you’re speaking publicly, people tend to critique your content on a higher spectrum than men because of the whole what’s “lady like” thing. Not to mention people tend to pay much closer attention to your cloths, hair and overall look. Then there’s some of the promoters, but not too many, that will hire you in hopes he or she will get closer to you on a personal level.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’re a business woman as well. You have branched out, doing more than just comedy. Tell or readers about Keeping It Funny Entertainment and other business ventures that you’re involved with.

Sheree Luckett: Yes I am the CEO of my own company, Keeping It Funny Entertainment, where I book other professional comedians, as well as for multiple venues nationwide. I’ve always done more than comedy due to the fact that I’ve been employed by Chicago Public Schools as a SECA (Special Education Classroom Assistant) teacher for over 25 years now. I plan to extend my Comedy agency to larger heights in the near future by possibly managing other talents, including myself.

GO BANG! Magazine: What is your dream for your future?

Sheree Luckett: First is to be alive and healthy in life. I would like to branch out into producing and directing independent films, as well possibly opening my own comedy club.

GO BANG! Magazine: What are you working on now, that our readers should be on the lookout for?

Sheree Luckett: I’m writing my first play. I’m also working on a gang of material so I can have a whole new comedy set by the time this pandemic is over and we get back to in-person performances. I’m also trying to keep myself booked as much as possible. Oh, almost forgot, I still book my once a month “Fallout Funny 1st Friday” comedy show in the Chicago with other local and international comedians.

GO BANG! Magazine: The COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

Sheree Luckett: I’m actually dealing with it much better than I’d expect. Keeping busy with the things I mentioned prior and considering I also teach and coach high school students. I’m also working remotely from home most of the day. I’m definitely working out at least three times a week and trying to keep a proper diet, so when all this is over, I won’t look like “The Good Year Blimp” (laughing).

GO BANG! Magazine: When did you know that you were funny?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: I guess I could say ever since I was a kid. I was always joking and playing around. I even got in trouble. When I would get in trouble, I would say or do something silly to try and change the mood. My mom would get mad as hell and yell, “Ain’t a damn thing funny.” LOL I come from a funny family and what’s even worse, a family that likes to laugh. Once you get them started, they crying, spitting out drinks, damn near about to pee on themselves. They just always laughed, so I gave them something to laugh at.

GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: I started in 2009 after being laid off from my job. After being let go, I told myself that I didn’t want to punch a clock anymore. I wanted to do something that was going to allow me to not have to talk in my white woman voice for nine hours a day. Lawd that is annoying. I wanted to talk in my regular voice. I tried “open mic” just to see how I would do. I tried it and fell in instant love, and it has been 11 years later.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: I consider myself to be an observational story teller. I tell life relating stories that are funny. Things you can’t believe you are laughing at!!!

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: My name…lol…that is it. Being Netra. There are so many talented comedians and we are servants of funny.

GO BANG! Magazine: What advice would you give to an aspiring comic trying to break into comedy?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: Stage time develops your journey into being a comedian. I meet people and they have notebooks of material and I tell them that shows they are a writer, you aren’t in the comedian phase until you get on stage.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve had an opportunity to work with some well-known comedians including the late John Witherspoon. What did you learn, if anything, from working with those legendary people?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: I learned by watching John Witherspoon that if you create classic moments, people remember that forever. His opening was the audience reciting his lines from movies he was in. The audience loves him and seeing timeless moments.

GO BANG! Magazine: What are you currently working on at this time, that you can tell our readers to be on the lookout for?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: To be honest, I ain’t working on shit! LOL… This pandemic has me taking a break and regrouping right now. Just follow my IG @netracomedy and stay tuned…But for right now, I am enjoying my time off and going crazy at the same time. LOL

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve done some acting as well. What are some of the gigs you’ve had and are you still pursuing that area of entertainment?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: I played a pilgrim in 2nd grade and didn’t act again until I started comedy at 30. My acting background comes from being in plays. Majority of my roles I have been casted to play, I played a dramatic role. My favorite role and my only comedic role so far was a play written by Comedian Billy Dee Washington called, “Finding 1st Lady.” It’s about a Pastor going on a reality show to find love, and I play one of the contestants. This was a great experience and definitely made me want to pursue acting more.

GO BANG! Magazine: The COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you personally dealing with it personally?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: Man listen, the bible says “Peace be still.” I am doing just that. I am sitting back wearing my mask, washing my hands and using an absurd amount of hand sanitizer. I have hustled and worked so hard in my life and I feel like the Lord has blessed me to have a seat and regroup at this time. Something about being indoors all the time is certainly harder than it seems!!! I am here in Chicago, my fam is in Texas and I miss them just cause I can’t access them. Cause Lord knows, I been social distancing from my family since 1996 when I graduated high school LOL. Now, I video chat for no reason. I’m just laying low, staying prayed up, and waiting for the ok to do old normal things again.

GO BANG! Magazine: Lastly, on May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill. Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down, begging for his life and repeatedly saying “I can’t breathe.” This incident has caused civil unrest and massive protests across the world. How do you feel about this unfortunate situation and call for police reform due to the horrible treatment of minorities by the police?

Netra ‘MsAlready’ Babin: Situation is totally unfortunate. No comment.

Jerome Fuller, aka Rome Anthony, was born and raised in Chicago, IL, where at an early age he became interested in the performing arts. In both grammar and high school, Rome Anthony took part in all of the school’s creative arts events. Being voted the “Class Clown” of 1982, he was on his quest for comedy. As a student at Columbia College Chicago, Rome Anthony continued his search in the performing arts. In the Chicago area, if there’s an open mic, you are sure to find Rome Anthony.

GO BANG! Magazine: Where did you grow up and spend your childhood?

Rome Anthony: I was born February 25, 1964, the low end of Chicago. My address was 4735 S. Indiana and my hood was known as “tobacco road.” My mom kept me around the music industry, where I witnessed the battle between the Temptations and Four Tops at the Regal Theater. It was the best show ever and it opened me up for creativity. My father was killed in 1968 and we moved to 85th and Oglesby in 1974, then on to 107st 1978, where I spent the rest of my childhood.

GO BANG! Magazine: When did you know that you were funny?

Rome Anthony: I guess you can say I got started and knew I was funny all in the same day.

GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

Rome Anthony: I got started in comedy when I met Bernie Mac. The year was 1989 at a cast party held at the Cotton Club. At the end of his show, Bernie Mac said “if you think your funny come on up.” At this time in my life, I was a serious actor (silly and disruptive in rehearsal) but still an actor. The group I was sitting with started chanting my name “Rome Anthony…Rome Anthony!” Bernie Mac said “who the hell is Rome Anthony?” I stood up and he quickly said “Tony Rome get yo’ ass up here!” That was the day my comedy career started. Bernie Mac mentored me in my early years, and once you get a taste of instant applauds, I slowly moved away from theater and pursued my comedy career.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

Rome Anthony: Being raised by a single mom, I was told all day, every day to be more observant.” So that would describe my comedy style…observation with a twist of animation.

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

Rome Anthony: In the comedy world, jokes are stolen often, but on the other hand a premise belongs to no one. We laugh at the same things. Why…because we, on a larger scale, we experience the same things (premise.)

I say all that to say that my jokes and routine are done in a way where no other comedian would or could copy. 25 years ago, I started doing gay jokes, not like other comedians, where they talk about gays. I brought up the subject while transforming into a gay person.

To this day my audience leaves my show asking the question (is he?) For about 20 years I was the go to comic who could play the gay character with conviction. Since the LGBTQ movement and we now have LGBTQ comedians my phone no longer rings.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve branched out from comedy and have moved more into film/video production. Can you tell the readers about what you’re working on?

Rome Anthony: I’m always writing TV sitcoms and trying to move them forward. My background is television broadcast and acting, and when I write jokes, they come with scenes ready to be recorded.

GO BANG! Magazine: In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

Rome Anthony: So while we are stuck in the house, I have picked several other writers to help me polish my scripts and bring them to life.

GO BANG! Magazine: Where did you grow up and spend your childhood?

Damon Williams: I grew up initially in Woodlawn during the TWO movement during the late 60s early 70s. We moved to what’s now Brainerd area, but it was part of Beverly until Black families moved in. They rezoned our block out of Beverly. We moved there in 1973, one the first Black families on the block. My mother lives there still

GO BANG! Magazine: When did you know that you were funny?

Damon Williams: I guess I thought I was before I ever hit the mic. I’d say I knew I was once people laughed at my first real performance at All Jokes Aside, where I got my start. It was Open Mic Wednesday, hosted by Adele Givens. I went from an OpenM ic guy to the host of that Wednesday night when she blew up and left, which was about one year after my first time ever!
GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

Damon Williams: I got started at All Joked Aside. That was the premium, Black owned comedy establishment in the country. It was an upscale, professional club with A-listers and soon to be legendary comics. It was like going to a Comedy University every weekend. I made great connections being there. Lots of opportunities followed, including my first network cable appearance on Comedy Central’s “Comic Justice” hosted by AJ Jamal. After only six months of open mic and local gigs, Comedy Central came to my home club, All Jokes Aside, to film the show. This show was executive produced by Sinbad and his brother Mark Adkins, with Andre Wiseman. They gave me my first tv shot. I kept rolling from there!

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

Damon Williams: My style of humor has no type I could speak of. I’m a multifaceted performer at this point in my career. I combine spontaneity with prepared material, which derive from life and also my imagination and perspective. I love it when I’m inspired to say or do something off the cuff and the crowd erupts in laughter Especially if its ad lib or a reaction to something in real time. That’s when it’s the best, when the audience knows I couldn’t have had that line or story prepared because I’m doing improve, based on what just happened in the room.

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

Damon Williams: I think each seasoned comedian has a unique voice, not only vocally but point of view That true voice sometimes take years to find. I’ve found mine, and it’s genuinely me. So that’s what set us apart, our individual way of expression.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve done some acting as well. Are you still pursuing that area of entertainment?

Damon Williams: Yes. I think I have the bug as far as acting is concerned. I’ve had several nice roles on independent projects. Two with Chicago’s own B Cole, a comedian, actor, screenwriter and director. He’s a visionary with a genius comedic mind. He trusted me with the lead in his film Heaven On Seven with Terri J. Vaughan and a slew of Chicago talent. I hope it gets major exposure. It’s a good story that we did a pretty good job of bringing the characters off the page. More to come! I have Gill Talent on my team now they are sending me out for more roles.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’re a business man as well. You have branched out, doing more than just comedy. Tell or readers about other business ventures that you’re involved with.

Damon Williams: I executive produced a stand up series, “Laugh Tonight with Damon Williams” due out soon, and one new streaming network launching soon. I’d say more, but with the uncertainty of the entertainment industry and the world at large, with this wicked crisis we’re facing. I was also a partner in Riddles Comedy Club, but again these things are in limbo until normalcy returns. Hey, I may be starting a new enterprise…selling weed or something, if this damn virus doesn’t cease soon. I’m now researching ways to change or add a new revenue stream and income that doesn’t rely on mass public gathering. That’s the world ahead for a while, beyond this crisis

GO BANG! Magazine: What are you currently working on at this time, that you can tell our readers to be on the lookout for?

Damon Williams: As previously stated “Laugh Tonight with Damon Williams” first season is done with 24 multicultural and international comedians from a wide array of backgrounds. It’s going to be epic when it hits. Additionally, I have a small part in Mark Harris’ latest film entitled White People Money.

GO BANG! Magazine: In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

Damon Williams: I’m so concerned about not only the current state this “Plandemic” has us in. I called it that because I feel it was somehow introduced by man. There are diabolical forces in charge of the money and the power in this world. I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s not part of some major plan to create fear and control of citizenry, money and resources. I sound like a conspiracy theorist and I might be. I’m taking it seriously, adhering to the guidelines and plotting strategies for these new “what ifs” in life, based on the virus. I’m remaining cautiously optimistic because I believe there will be greater prosperity on the other side of this. People will want to congregate and fellowship, even more, when it’s allowed. What better way than to be laughing at a comedy event!

In 2002, B. Cole wrote and starred in his first feature length film, A Get2gether, now distributed through Millennium Films and can presently be seen on cable, satellite and Dish networks. A Get2gether has been showcased nationwide in several festivals and it won the Best Independent Film Award at the 2005 Chicago Comedy Awards. In the same year, B. Cole was also awarded the Robert Townsend Award for his sketch comedy show “The B. Cole Show.”

In the summer of 2016, B. Cole wrote and directed his latest feature film Heaven on Seven, starring comedian Damon Williams and actress Terri J. Vaughn.

February 2017, B. Cole released an independent web series written and directed by him titled Man Who Starred in Over 10 Million Movies. These comedy shorts can be viewed on his YouTube channel B-Cole Films, Twitter and Instagram @bcole_films.

B. Cole has captured audiences across the country with his original side-splitting, thought-provoking material. He has toured U.S. military bases throughout Japan and here in the states. His internationally acclaimed signature comical piece, “I’m in Love with a Crack Head”, a satirical love poem, inspired B. Cole to develop the concept into a short film that was debuted May 1, 2017 at www.lrplive.tv.

GO BANG! Magazine: Where did you grow up and spend your childhood?

B. Cole: I grew up on the south side of Chicago in the Roseland/Pullman area, where it’s now known as “The Wild Hundreds.”

GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

B. Cole: A year after high school, I decided that I wanted to do comedy. I was confident that I was funny from the jokes and laughs I had with my friends. The first Friday of November in 1991, I went to an open mic of a variety show at The South Shore Cultural Center. I went alone for three weeks, just to get a feel for the crowd, and see how everyone received the comics, outside the musicians, dancers and impersonators. It was the first time I ever attended something cultural like that on that level. Thanks to creator and host Donn Carl Harper for giving me my first shot.

On Black Friday, the night after Thanksgiving, I felt that I was ready. I had my jokes together, nervous, but after my first joke “Hey my name is Brandall Cole and I just finished college, give it up for a young black man finishing college (applause) Well I didn’t graduate I just finished going.” They laughed, and the rest is history.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

B. Cole: I call my comedy style “Boxcutter Comedy” because if you try to be put in one {box}, my comedy style will get me out.

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

B. Cole: I think my corky, cool persona. I have a cool delivery of some sometimes corny, over your head jokes. Some comedians just speak what’s on the surface. I speak a lot about topics that I hear and read on social media everyday, all day in barbershops and salons. I wanna take people away from that, for at least an hour, to a Cole world.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’ve done some acting as well. Are you still pursuing that area of entertainment?

B. Cole: Yes my first professional acting job was an indie film titled A Lover for my Husband in 1992. My last acting job was in a Chicago series called “This is not Chiraq” in 2015. The show lasted for one season that streams now on Inde.tv.

GO BANG! Magazine: You’re a business man as well. You have branched out, doing more than just comedy. Tell or readers about other business ventures that you’re involved with.

B. Cole: I have produced and directed feature and short films, a web series, a sketch comedy television pilot titled “The Cole Boys Comedy Show” with co star Deon Cole. It can be seen on my Youtube channel “BColefilms.”

GO BANG! Magazine: What advice would you give to an aspiring comic trying to break into the comedy world?

B. Cole: Study, respect and master the art of comedy, and most importantly have fun.

GO BANG! Magazine: What are you currently working on at this time, that you can tell our readers to be on the lookout for?

B. Cole: Right now, I’m pitching shows to some major networks, I have a stand up performance on a new series called “Laugh Tonight with Damon Williams,” hosted by my good friend Damon Williams himself. I’m also continuing my residency at The Dojo Comedy House in West Hollywood, 7038 W Sunset Blvd, atop the Sycamore Tavern, every Tuesday. I call it “The Comedy Gym at The Dojo” where professional comedians can come workout their material, getting it ready for bigger shows, hour specials etc., without feeling the pressure of being funny as people expect them to be. It’s hard to be a Dave Chappelle and try a new routine in a sold out stadium or on TV.

The Comedy Gym at The Dojo is set up perfect with a small intimate non-judgmental crowd and absolutely NO phone recording. I’ve been into films for so long, I felt it was time to get back in the gym. @comedygym2020 on ig and Comedygymthedojo on FB.

GO BANG! Magazine: In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

B. Cole: Full of faith and praise. I am feeling it take a toll on me, by not getting on stage to have an outlet for myself to relieve stress and cheer up the world. One day at a time though. This too shall pass.

Despite its humorous context, breaking into the comedy industry is no laughing matter. After experiencing the difficult politics of the funny business for himself, stand-up comedian, Darrick Jones, decided to take matters into his own hands. Inspired by his personal struggles within the field, he created an accessible platform for comedy s newcomers,

Darrick s Personal Battle with Comedy s Politics

Despite the fact that Darrick worked for Chicago s public transit system, he has always been a comedian at heart. Every morning, he would entertain his co-workers with jokes and anecdotes, creating a light and amusing atmosphere that everyone enjoyed. During this time, he was often told that he d missed his calling, but realized that this was not the case. He hadn t missed it. It was still waiting for him. After seventeen years with the Chicago Transit Authority, he took a risk, and quit his job to pursue comedy full time.

Upon entering the business, Darrick discovered that it required much more than the courage to stand on a stage and tell jokes (though this was a challenge in itself). New comedians also had to face the industry s strict hierarchies. According to Darrick, it s a common practice for venues to skip over the names of new comedians, giving coveted performance spots to those who had been in the industry much longer. This made it extremely difficult for Darrick to make a name for himself, and after a frustrating run on the circuit, he decided to call it quits.

A New Place for Comedians

For about two years, Darrick stayed away from the industry. But, in the end, he couldn t leave it behind. The joy he got from making people laugh and the way they relaxed as he turned real, culturally-infused anxieties into hilarious stories, was impossible to ignore. So, he decided to change the way the field operated, and created his own platform for stand-up. Not only that, but he made sure it was targeted towards new comedians, allowing them to enter the business without fighting through all of the politics he d witnessed himself.

Darrick believes that everyone can be extraordinary as long as they keep moving forward. Great things come to anyone willing to persistently pursue their passion, and if he can help provide a space for that passion to be displayed, he will. His Naughty Comedy Showcase and now Kill the Crowd Comedy Showcase is exactly that. It s an arena in which emerging comics can perform, without the fear of being replaced by bigger name comedians.

Darrick host Free Showcase/Open Mics thru out the month where you can see comedy in it’s rawest form, from this he brings you the Fantastically Funny Kill The Crowd Comedy Showcase! Showcasing the best of Comedy’s Up and coming Talent!

GO BANG! Magazine: Where did you grow up and spend your childhood?

Darrick J.: I grew up on Chicago’s southeast side. The neighborhood changed from Polish to Black and Latino. This was in the 70’s, and we were the second Black family to move in on the block.

GO BANG! Magazine: How did you get started in comedy?

Darrick J.: How I got started in comedy? That’s a perception question. I would say I’ve always been a comic since grammar school, but for the sake of this article, I got started like comics do, by going to “Open Mics” and trying to get noticed and practicing. I would go to the famous “Jokes and Notes” off 47th and King Dr. in Chicago. That’s where I got my first experiences in the Comedy scene.

GO BANG! Magazine: How would you describe your style of humor?

Darrick J.: I have a very energetic, in your face, clever, while delivering a message and being personable style. My style of stand-up is more of a conversational, storytelling style.

GO BANG! Magazine: What do you think sets you apart from other comedians?

Darrick J.: Never thought of it, but I would say that Im about taking the audience on a ride, a journey. Certain parts of my set are to be listened to until I hit you with the punch line. My sets are interesting, with a funny twist. Each night is different because each crowd is different. I like to start organically, and then go into my sets. Objective for me is for the audience not to know where my sets start, but we are having a long conversation, and they are in on it..

GO BANG! Magazine: The politics of the comedy circuit left a bad taste in your mouth. Please describe your past experiences in the comedy club scene.

Darrick J.: Starting out in comedy there were a lot of cliques. No one would give the new person a chance to fail unless you were recommended by someone who was in the “in crowd” it seemed. I saw people that would come, week after week, and not get a chance to go up. I was one of them. I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t know anything about comedy, just knew it was what I was suppose to do. After that experience, I stopped for two years until I made up my mind to try it again in 2014! It was brutal, with little to no assistance for the new comers. (There was) a lot of what I would call comedic hazing, if you didn’t do well, coming from the other comics. These experiences were a blessing. It gave me the platform to build one, that I saw was much needed, one that I still have and continue to build today.

GO BANG! Magazine: What advice would you give to an aspiring comic trying to break into the comedy world?

Darrick J.: Find out who you are on stage and don’t be afraid of it, trust in it and trust in yourself! Everyone will give you advice; take from that advice what you can use to benefit you, and anything else, put it to the side. No one knows your journey but you. Live in it and embrace it. Everything else will come!

GO BANG! Magazine: You’re a business man as well. You have branched out into business, giving up-and-coming comics a platform to perform. Tell us about your comedy showcases.

Darrick J.: All of my Showcases are based on my basic premise; you can’t be great, unless you help someone else be great. The first show that I created in 2014 was called “The Naughty Comedy Showcase.”  I basically used the same five comics every show, and it was a once a month. By doing that show, it opened up other opportunities.

I was able to get rooms to run a once-a-week “Open Mic.”  That’s where “Laughs In Lakeview” was born and has been running for about four years now. We are at Shakers on Clark, 3160 North Clark Street in Chicago, every Monday 8 pm, FREE! Here we do what is called “joke development.” If you want to get into comedy or you are a seasoned comic that needs to practice your sets, this is the place. This “Open Mic” is my spring board for my once a month showcase called “Kill The Crowd Comedy Showcase,” where I have the best comics from Chicago and the Midwest, come and showcase their comedy for Chicago!  What makes these shows different, is the variety that I showcase. I am the host for all of these events and they all can be found on Eventbrite.

GO BANG! Magazine: What comedians do you admire and/or inspire you?

Darrick J.: When I got into comedy, I didn’t study comedy or was a comedy buff. When I decided in 2014, that’s what I was doing, I started looking at comedy to see how it’s done. The people I most identify with are Patrice Oneal and Dave Chappelle. I say them because it wasn’t just about their comedy, but the journey they took to be who they were.

GO BANG! Magazine: What are you currently working on at this time, that you can tell our readers to be on the lookout for?

Darrick J.: Currently, because of the Coronavirus…NOTHING! JUTS KIDDING!! Be on the look out for” Kill The Crowd Comedy Showcase” coming to Shakers On Clark St., 3160 N. Clark Street in Chicago, as soon as we get off punishment!

GO BANG! Magazine: In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world off guard. How are you dealing with it?

Darrick J.: I’m doing my part by staying in the house and keeping with social distancing. We really must think of others at times like this…
