Lavell Crawford drops 120 pounds

Lavell Crawford joked about his weight and his battle with “the sugar” over the course of finishing runner-up on Last Comic Standing, panels on Chelsea Lately and his own hour-long stand-up comedy specials, and shined playing Better Call Saul‘s bodyguard/assistant on Breaking Bad.

But since filming a supporting role in the new movie, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Crawford has lost upward of 120 pounds.

Just take a look at his face (above) from a week ago. He’s gotten into even better shape than when he cited the “120 pound” weight-loss in late July.

As he joked last month presenting at The Neighborhood Awards, “I done moved up in life and moved down in pounds.”

“People look at me like, ‘Oh, you look good! You look good! I’m so proud of you! Keep it up.’ Hell, I lost 120 pounds. Damn, what I gotta do to please your ass? What, do I got to get as small as Terrence J, little bitty ass wearing them Gymboree suits?” Crawford continued on with a bit of a stand-up filibuster, but it’s all good. Ain’t that right, Uncle Steve Harvey and Sheryl Underwood? Roll it!

Take a look.
