Comedian
    Stand-up comic
    Appeared on Comedy Central's The Bonfire

    Fired from the cast of Saturday Night Live after clips of his podcast featuring racist and homophobic jokes surfaced (2019)
    He was fired by SNL within twenty-four hours of being hired.
    He was criticized for using the ethnic slur 'chink' in several of his podcasts.
    In one video, he directed the racial slur at Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
    He made several homophobic jokes in reference to Judd Apatow and comedian Chris Gethard.
    His initial response and apology to the backlash came off as insincere.
    His reputation for offensive humor was well known enough for at least one Philadelphia-based comedy club to stop working with him because of it.
    He was recruited by the US Military Academy on a football scholarship, but dropped out before completing basic training.
    He was named Philly’s Funniest Comedian by the Helium Comedy Club in 2016.
    Andrew Yang publicly forgave and defended him after the podcast clips went viral.
    His firing has made him into a martyr for those who criticize 'cancel culture'.
    He was defended by David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Norm MacDonald.
    He reacted to his firing by saying: 'I’m a comedian who was funny enough to get on SNL. That can’t be taken away. Of course, I wanted an opportunity to prove myself at SNL but it would be too much of a distraction.'
