This past weekend at NBA basketball player Josh Howard’s Celebrity Weekend in Dallas, Texas, AllHipHop.com caught up with Grand Hustle comedian and Twitter celebrity, Lil’ Duval.
Lil’ Duval is currently hard at work on a tour around the country making special appearances at select dates and is working on a new television show with MTV centered around his travels across the country.
“We stay on the road trying to make the world laugh, the whole country, staying on the road doing what I do best,” Lil Duval told AllHipHop.com.
Lil’ Duval plans to expose Hip-Hop fans to places and things they might not have otherwise seen, while giving fans a new perspective on the realities of the world.
“I shot a couple of films and I got the show with MTV that we just finished, hopefully that will be out by August,” Lil Duval told AllHipHop.com. “It’s a travel show and we go to places you don’t normally see ni**as. I get tired of people thinking that the only thing there is to do is go to the club, so I try to show another side to let people know there’s other stuff out there.”
In the brief interview AllHipHop asked Duval a few questions about some of his favorite comedians that may have influenced his stand up routine or his career in general.
Duval acknowledged that Chris Rock helped inspire the development of his stand up routine.
“I guess I learned from all the ones that’s doing good,” Lil Duval told AllHipHop.com. “I mean, I think the one that impressed me most was probably Chris Rock, the way he goes about working his show, and building his show.”
Lil Duval also gave Grand Hustle fans an update on Atlanta based rapper and actor T.I., who is currently still incarcerated until September 29th for violating his parole for possession of marijuana and ecstasy pills.
“I think he ate breakfast this morning,” Lil Duval said. “He’s in jail. He gets out this year, so when he gets out, he gonna do the damn thing. So it is what it is, shit…. what can he do.”
