Arnez J.'s RACIALLY MOTIVATED Now Available

Arnez J. tells it like it is with Racially Motivated. New Wave Dynamics has released the comedian's new special on digital audio and digital video today, February 4, 2014.

Arnez is back in in his element as he performs gut-busting impressions and tells stories of his family life in this one-hour special. His spastic comedy will leave you howling.

Diverging from the hard-edged raunchy and streetwise observational styles of other contemporary African-American comedians, Arnez J offers comic routines reminiscent of an earlier era of comedy. His improvisational comic style is primarily physical, with a strong reliance on impressions and exaggerations of familiar personalities. "J is a whirling dervish on stage--he runs, jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing them," wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. His idols are the classic television comedians of the 1960s: Flip Wilson, Red Skelton, and a performer who might be considered an unlikely inspiration for a modern African-American male artist.

In 1995, Arnez J got a chance to combine his ambitions as an athlete and performer: he was recruited by scouts for the famed Harlem Globetrotters basketball team. In 1996 he joined the team, but three months later a knee injury ended his Globetrotters career. "Apparently I'm meant to make a living as a comedian, which is fine," he observed to Condran. In the late 1990s, Arnez J became a familiar face on the comedy circuit and landed plum television spots on Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam A&E's An Evening at the Improv, and Comedy Central's Make Me Laugh, among other shows. After a half-hour solo special on BET, Arnez J became the host of Comic View in 2002.
