by Damon Wayans:
Nothing is too outrageous for Damon Wayans. Whether he's talking about family, celebrities, racism, relationships, politics, or sex, he takes no prisoners. And in Bootleg, Damon brings it all on, uncut and uncensored. Filled with laughs, craziness, and lots of truth, Bootleg will leave you hurting for more!
Celebrities: When I found out that Steven Spielberg has two black kids, I was amazed. Where did he get these kids from? Were they props left over from The Color Purple?
Black Leaders: I must have been asleep the day they elected Al Sharpton as the black representative. He is the only leader in history to show up to a rally wearing a tight red velour sweat suit with a roller in the front of his hair.
Religion: Thanks to preachers, a lot of people have given up on religion completely. Today, going to church is like going to Vegas. You'll leave thinking, "Man, I lost $75.00 up in this motha."
