UPROXX 20: Sam Richardson Wishes He’d Invested In Netflix


In Champaign ILL (which is now available to stream on YouTube Premium), Sam Richardson and Adam Pally play professional friends/hangers-on beside Jay Pharoah’s ultra successful rap/mogul character. Eventually, the bottom falls out with that arrangement and the guys are forced to confront the life they left behind years ago… which, yeah, that doesn’t go so well. At least not at first. But while it may be initially hard to see why someone would pay Richardson’s swag-hoarding character to hang around and drink their fancy liquor, Richardson’s UPROXX 20 answers make it clear why you’d want to party with him in real life. After all, the guy hands out comic books as presents, watches anime, and surrenders himself to the smooth sounds of Mr. Sir Paul McCartney. He’s also not afraid to cop to his childhood affection for a brainy cartoon mouse who could handle her business with the Rescue Rangers. And then there’s that final meal. I’m a little shocked the Detroiters star and co-creator (let us all join hands and hope that that just-canceled show will make a comeback) isn’t going out with a pile of Coney dogs (from Lafayette, of course), but a meat variety play is a sound alternative choice.
