Happy birthday to Lil Rel Howery! Today, the comedian and actor turns 40 and is here to talk about his new HBO special ‘Live in Crenshaw.’ Directed by his friend and fellow comic Jerrod Carmichael, ‘Live in Crenshaw’ is unlike any other stand-up special released this year, both in how it looks and how it came together. As Rel reveals in this episode, he barely had time to prepare and had no idea exactly what he was going to say when he took the stage. We also discuss his early days in the Chicago comedy scene, his humble advice for idol Eddie Murphy and his iconic roles in films like ‘Get Out’ and ‘Bird Box.’Follow @LilRel4 and @mattwilstein on Twitter and @lastlaughpod on Instagram. Highlights from this episode and others at The Daily Beast.
