Bonus Trivia

.

Was deeply inspired the first time he watched "Def Poetry Jam" at the age of 17.

"Ambivalence is death in the theater. I won't say the name, but the worst show I've ever seen in New York, I went to see twice. When a friend of mine said they hadn't seen it, I was like, "Well, I have to take you. You're going to hate this thing so much." That, to me, is more interesting than walking out of the theater like, "God. What a waste of two hours." It's about polarization. You're trying to stir up something in your audience." - from Npr.org, Dec. 21, 2015

"I was a good student; I was a good boy. I got A's, and I did all the papers right. And that's not what you want to see, as an audience member. You do not want to see somebody that's up there trying to do it right, trying to do it perfectly." - from Npr.org, Dec. 21, 2015
