Jermaine Fowler was named to Variety‘s 10 comics to watch list in 2016, and in 2017, we’re all getting the chance with Fowler starring alongside Judd Hirsch in CBS’ Superior Donuts as an energetic artist/donut shop clerk and as a stand-up comic opposite Pete Holmes in HBO’s Crashing, which premieres on Sunday.
Fowler was nice enough to take some time to add his answers to the Uproxx questionnaire series and to reveal that Lupe Fiasco has made him cry, Redman changed his life, and that he’d like to do the same for Nic Cage.
