UPROXX 20: Open Mike Eagle Loves ‘Super Thicc’ Lobsters, Hates Instagram




Open Mike Eagle is a hip-hop artist and comedian (and friend of Uproxx) probably best known for his music and his upcoming Comedy Central series, The New Negroes. Additionally, today marks the launch of his new talk show, co-hosted by Dani Fernandez, called Live From WZRD. According to the press materials for the show, Live From WZRD is a VRV show about wizardry that is “shot in the student-run TV studio at East Gatewood Wizarding Community College (a 2-year accredited wizarding school in La Crescenta, CA)” and will feature “on-set segments with celebrity guests and characters from around the school.” You can watch the show here.

Open Mike was nice enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to participate in our vaunted twenty questions questionnaire series.
