Jermaine Fowler’s first stand-up special debuts Friday night on Showtime, and Tuesday night he showed up on sister station CBS to perform a sampling from it on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Specifically, Fowler reveals what it’s like to have a twin brother who’s named for their father, and yet, also gets arrested a bit. “It was hard growing up with a criminal that kinda looks like you,” Fowler joked. Not quite as hard, getting into Twitter beefs with family and people who knew him back in the day.
If you want more backstories from Jermaine Fowler’s young life and his new Showtime special, Give ‘Em Hell, Kid, hear him tell them to me on the latest episode of my podcast, The Comic’s Comic Presents Last Things First.
