Tabari McCoy recorded his first comedy album in his basement when he was either 10 or 11 years of age. But it was terrible – and like the item central to the plot of Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark – it was filed away, never be heard again.
Luckily for the public, Tabari has gotten much better with age – and as soon as he takes the stage, you’ll have no problem discovering just why that is.
A fan of stand-up comedy dating back to when "Bill Cosby: Himself" was new in theaters, Tabari’s sense of humor reflects a wide assortment of influences, speaking on everything from every day annoyances to pop culture, sports and his own personal experiences. Tabari's conversational, every man style has led him to open for a wide range of today's stars, including but not limited to Mike Birbiglia, Charlie Murphy, Tommy Jonhnagin, Jimmy Dore and Billy Gardell among others. Having conquered - at least for the time being - his fear of flying, Tabari has also been honored to perform at several prestigious events, such as the San Francisco Sketch Fest, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival and the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, IN.
Tabari spends his spare time wondering why every spell check tells him "Tabari" is not spelled correctly when it is ... He always writes a movie blog at http://mccoyonmovies.blogspot.com (shameless plug!). Now set to record his debut album for Rooftop Comedy in 2013, Tabari’s future on stage is looking bigger, brighter and hopefully for the sake of the banks that he owes money, more financially stable.
But no matter what he says, he says it all with one simple goal in mind: Making people laugh – and hoping he doesn’t anger his family or God in the process.
Tabari McCoy cannot take LL Cool J seriously.
