Shoot with comedian Larry Wilmore for Comedy Special on Showtime

Posted by on Oct 19, 2012 | 0 comments

Today I was on set on a beach in FL to shoot the opening scene for Larry Wilmore’s Showtime special called “Race, Religion & Sex in Florida.” The meat of the show will be taped before a live audience Oct. 24 at the Florida Theatre.

The comedic scene we shot today involved me and 4 others portraying Cuban immigrants arriving on a make-shift raft as Larry delivered the intro to the show.

The show will air on Showtime Nov 3rd.
