Honoree: The 85 South Show
The Grind: Comedians
Find Them: @85SouthShow
DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean are hilarious separately. Put them together as a trio and it’s belly aching laughs all day. Most people first witnessed this chemistry while watching Wild n’ Out, the hip-hop improv comedy show that Nick Cannon brought to MTV. Now, the crew has their own digital and touring comedy show, where they interview people of interest and discuss trending topics with their own comedic flair.
Sometimes, seeing more than one-comedian sharing a space at the same time can be painful, with each trying to “out-funny” the other. That doesn’t happen on 85 South. Maybe it’s the southern vibe. Even better, they openly support, push and understand each other— and definitely hold each other accountable if someone goes too far.
Their bond was evidenced during a Breakfast Club interview, when the guys revealed it all, from sexual habits to financial changes and challenges. They call it a brotherhood, and proved it when DC volunteered to take a pay cut to bring Karlous back to a tour. The three are a unit, thorough, loyal, and honest. Something even Nick Cannon valued, when they all refused to the return to Wild n’Out unless Nick was there.
