The BLACKPACK All Laughs Matter
"It's a year later and the students are still talking about The BLACKPACK's comedy tour. On our predominately white campus this show brought in a mixed crowd and sent a positive message about diversity. Not only was it entertaining, the show had a big learning aspect to it. Conversations were started that normally never happen and those dialogues are still continuing." The Universtiy of Georgia
The Blackpack presents “#All Laughs Matter”
Vince Morris, BT, Billy D. Washington, and Louis Johnson. Four headliners. One stage.
Celebrating our differences one joke at a time.
Why this title? Because at some point in our career…each of us has been accused of not being true to our heritage…our culture…and our profession. Too Black for one venue. Not Black enough for another.
But, funny is funny. Right?
We are here to celebrate our individualism.Our motto: Be Yourself. Because Everybody Else Is Already Taken.
Join us as we chip at the walls of racial and social stereotypes.
Comedians have been featured on: HBO, Comedy Central, CBS, NBC, A&E, Showtime, UPN, MTV, ESPN, VH1, FOX & B.E.T.
SERIOUS. EDUCATED.LAUGHING. LEARNING. OUTRAGEOUS. UNIQUE. TALENTED!
The audience was VERY responsive and VERY impressed with what these guys did. It was a mixed audience, more white than black by a long shot, which surprised me a bit.
These guys are as nice and congenial, as flexible and cooperative as anyone ever. A presenter couldn't ask for a more pleasant "work day." Their material is SO spot-on, just to the perfect "edge" in every way - with never going over or too far. They're very, very smart in reading their audience. They know where they can take them, they know where they can create a crack in prejudices or stereotypes, and they do so with a humor and warmth that just brings everyone closer and closer - not only to them but to each other. In that way, their work is truly "medicinal," in the best sense of the word.

"Funny, current, and real. SELLOUT brings to the stage all that and more. The Black man's perspective with a twist."
