This just threw me…I remember first watching Tyler Craig on BET’s ComicView when I was a kid. He’s always been an underground favorite of mine and a true legend in this comedy game. I wasn’t expecting to read this news just now Rest up #TylerCraig

Tyler Craig was has down one of the funniest comics I had ever seen perform. I’ve watched so many comedians “borrow” his jokes, style, and his mannerisms on stage. And rightfully so, because Tyler was dope! He could do all styles.
He had the funniest jokes, stories, and best snaps/crowd work that dead bodied anyone sitting in the crowd that got his attention or wanted smoke. One night we performed at a club called “559” in the West End in Atlanta.
I lasted two minutes before @mybrucebruce took the mic from me. Tyler came up behind me and did 25 minutes and roasted everyone in the club.
People were literally crying begging him to stop. I will never forget that night. I learned comedy wasn’t always about structure and joke telling. And what Tyler said to me when he got off stage changed my career, and I quote…
“Finesse, and the moral of the story is, with this kind of crowd, comedy is about making a connection first before you start your set. That’s why I talked about everybody Momma for 25 minutes. I know all they Mommas!”
REST IN POWER my brotha! ATLANTA LEGEND. #2020 SUCKS!
