Personal Quote:

I was a special-needs child. It was like, 'Here's a kid with no arm. Here's a blind kid. Here is a biracial kid. Let's take the blind one.' So because I'm high yellow, I'm special needs, which means I would dominate at the Special Olympics. See more »

Trivia:

Both he and partner Jordan Peele were dramatically featured in a series of comic-photo examples of fictional employees demonstrating "The Saintly Way to Succeed" in a cover story and lengthy article with that title in the March 31, 2013 issue of The New York Magazine. See more »
