I have always contended, especially with Black people that they are born actors. They are always wearing disguises, always pretending to be what they are not in order to get over. This is something we are conditioned to do - using our survival instincts. And that’s all I’m doing on stage, using my tools to survive. - André De Shields

The major difficulty [Black comedians face] is in crossing over. White comedians never have to worry about that. If a White doesn’t make a Black laugh, it doesn’t mean anything. If a Black doesn’t make a White laugh, he’ll never get a job. - Franklyn Ajaye
