Wednesday night breaking comedian Jaboukie Young White made his Tonight Show debut and he crushed it. If you don’t know Jaboukie yet, you will love him, for his sweet demeanor, but don’t let his sweet demeanor and non-threatening delivery fool you, Young-White has sharp political material. In his Tonight Show set he talks about ethnic and racial stereotypes, the real reason millennials aren’t buying diamonds, how Trump has affected his every day life, and his Uber habits in other cities. And if you don’t know what it means to be ‘masc’ in the gay community, pay attention.
The Brooklyn based young comedian was listed as one of TBS’s Comics to Watch at the New York Comedy Festival this year and was recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 25 Under 25 in comedy. and he was featured in a pilot at the New York Television Festival. He’s been recognized for his social media joke writing, and his hilarious memes, but he’s also a rising talent on club stages. Jaboukie started his comedy career in Chicago as so many great young comedians do and now he’s performing all over Brooklyn and New York City, and touring around the country.
