The homie Comedian Pierre is back on the scene with a new web series called Dating Pierre on Youtube. We all know the funny man who was a favorite in some of the best movies exploring black life in the 90’s. I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with him about life, comedy, and making moves inside/outside of Hollywood.
Check out the details below.
Comedian Pierre is a veteran in the comedy game and has done everything from Hollywood TV, to television comedy specials like HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, BET’s Comicview, Showtime at Apollo, Martin Lawrence Presents and the late night tv circuit.
You will remember seeing Comic Pierre in such movies as B.A.P’s where he stared as the lovely Halle Berry’s boyfriend. And we can’t forget seeing him do his thing in How to be a Player. Then he stared opposite of comedic legend Leslie Nelsen as his partner in 2001: A Space Travesty. After a few small roles in The Wash with Eminem and Dr Dre and The Breaks. Then he stepped out on his own, where he wrote, produced, directed and starred in the theatrical released urban classic For Da Love of Money, which has recently been airing on BET and the Bounce network.
After doing his thing in Hollywood; Pierre decided to walk away from it all and just live life and pen a memorable memoir of his encounters with some of our favorite celebrities called “My 100 Homies and Phonies of Hollywood”. Pierre shared the motivation behind the memoir,
Everybody wants to know how it was to work with the big celebrities; so I decided to tell my story.
Now Pierre is working on one of the doppest web series on Youtube called Dating Pierre. This show is so funny and it’s not for the kids or yo mama because Pierre is bringing it. When asked if Dating Pierre is based on his life connecting with the pretty ladies, Pierre had the following to say,
Dating Pierre is just suggest of experiences and slightly hilarious visions of what could happen. It is my favorite and true to who I am as a person. I loved how Martin Lawrence and Chris Tucker had the ability to say whatever they wanted. I was always censored because the projects I worked on belonged to someone else. The few times I got the chance to ad lib they were truly memorable. With Dating Pierre I have the ability to be ME and I love it! You will too!
In addition to comedy shows, Dating Pierre, he has added movie directing to his resume. He has created a horror/comedy trilogy films “SLICE 1, 2 & 3” to be released in 2015. In Pierre’s words SLICE is what would happen if black people were given the opportunity to shine in horror movies; according to him it would be pretty funny.
Pierre’s first love is the comedy club stage, where you can catch him headlining the Improv (Dallas, Houston) , Carolines (NYC), the FunnyBone (Shreveport La, Boise Id, (Vicksburg, Ms) and many more.
He has performed for the troops, also he’s performed in comedy festivals as far away as Japan, South Africa, Germany, Amsterdam, England, etc.
