Together we suffered, together we learned and together we inspired, made people laugh and created great memories.

"As a young comic, you gave me so many club shows and when I was nervous because I was performing after ladies had twerked vigorously you encouraged me to go on stage and do my thang !!!! That gave me the balls I have today! I’ll miss you bro ! RIP.
