World-traveled and seasoned comic Dwayne Perkins, the whiz kid from the projects, came to my Studio City residence to speak on many things, including the benefits of stringing together international gigs, explaining the perception of the other 5 boroughs by Brooklynites, appreciating the pun-making ability of optometry places and Asian restaurants, interpreting audience reactions to jokes, being “one of us” when it comes to crowds, having nothing to lose as a rich or poor kid when going into entertainment or sports, lamenting not going into the dot-com industry, and opining about how being funny and nice as a guy is kind of like being pretty and nice as a girl. We got into exactly none of my questions as the convo simply flowed like hot chocolate. Btw, you should pick up his book, Hot Chocolate for the Mind. How do you like that segue? About as much as you like them apples? After all, the Whiz Kid (sort of a Will Hunting) spent some time in Boston. So, yeah… um, buy his book. Kind of titled like those Chicken Soup for the Soul books. So, if Dwayne released one of those in Asia, would it be for the… Seoul? Puns! So, had Dwayne launched a startup with Bill Gates, would it have been MS Projects? Puns! Enjoy.
