Only comedian Affion Crockett can go from Jay-Z to Chris Rock and then Donald Trump all in one go. The man is crazy talented and got some of his first spots on Tom’s back in the day as Scooter Wells on It’s Your World.
“It was definitely one of the first checks I got in Hollywood. You know what I mean like it was one of the first and only,” laughed Crockett. “Shout out to Brad Sanders, Myra J, Jetta, like it was a good situation man.”
Crockett has put the pencil to the paper busying himself with lots of writing.
“I’ve been writing man. I’ve been writing T.V. I’ve been developing pilots. I have three pilots that are done and they have some traction like I have partners,” said Crockett. “They all involve me. I wouldn’t put myself as like the lead in all of them but it’s definitely my voice, my words and my vision.”
As amazing as Crockett is with his impressions of people like Donald Trump, Jay-Z and others he’s also been working on comedy playing himself. “Mostly I want my voice to be heard in stand up. That’s why I even came back to stand-up four years ago. I want people to know what voice is and what my thoughts are on politics, racism and gay people.” expressed Crockett.
