Gary Owen is the funniest white man that black people like and Shaquille O’Neal is, well, Shaquille O’Neal. The two have joined up for the latest installment of Shaq’s comedy series “Shaquille O’Neal Presents All-Star Comedy Jam Live from Orlando” which Owen hosts.
On the stage are Capone, Tony Roberts, Pharoah and Li’l Duval, all of who starred on the comedy tour when it went around the country earlier this year. Owen and O’Neal chose their favorite comics for the tour and filmed the DVD version in Orlando, Florida during the past NBA All-Star Weekend. Owen, who appeared in “Think Like a Man,” enjoys a great deal of support from black audiences, something he says is far from contrived.
“All I do is get on stage and talk about my life and it resonates with black people," Owen told gapersblock.com earlier this year. “And I've never told stereotypical "black" jokes. I never wrote a joke about having roaches, or [having] bad credit or [how] black people are [always] late. I've said stuff that I've experienced with my wife's family and the black people I know. And I think it's smarter than what most people would expect to come out of my mouth; it's not the typical "a white guy who's talking about black people." I am a fish out of water, but I'm very comfortable in the water that I'm in.”
