The man of 1000 voices may no longer be on Saturday Night Live, but Jay Pharoah has no plans of slowing down anytime soon! He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his departure from the late night sketch comedy show, his new Jamie Foxx produced pilot White Famous and of course Kanye West, Kevin Hart, Stephen A. Smith, Denzel Washington and Foxx make an appearance.
Did he expect to be let go at SNL?
“I came up with over 100 characters on SNL. Transitions happen at the show. I had the Showtime thing and they couldn’t work with the timing. That check is better though so…”
On Kim Kardashian being robbed:
“It’s a bad time to be a black dude in Paris with a girlfriend. They taking your stuff. But when I heard she came back, I was like thank God. Or thank Kanye because he thinks he’s God.”
Jay is performing at the Albany Funny Bone October 7th and 8th and at the Atlantic City Comedy Festival on October 9th. He’s also part of the New York Comedy Festival at the Gramercy Theater on November 5th.
