Donnell Rawlings: From Ashy to Classy Airs This Saturday on Comedy Central

19 Oct

LMBAO has a very… err… complicated relationship with comedian Donnell Rawlings (more on that another time) but we’re going to push that aside for now and let you know about his upcoming special on Comedy Central entitled From Ashy to Classy, airing this Saturday at 11 p.m.

Jokes.com caught up with Rawlings this week to get his thoughts on his first time on stage, funny internet stuff and the future of stand-up:

What did it feel like getting on stage for the first time?

I thought because I was an accomplished heckler, I would be an accomplished comic. I wrote what I thought was a half-hour worth of material, which panned out to be, like, 10 seconds because there’s a difference writing and performing for yourself in the mirror than performing for a live crowd. And the minute I went on stage it’s like I drew a blank and I had to resort to some things I did as a heckler. But it taught me a lesson to never heckle a comic.
