Anthony Anderson On ‘People’s Party With Talib Kweli’

Anthony Anderson On 'People's Party With Talib Kweli'

In this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh sit down with comedian, actor, writer, and game show host Anthony Anderson. There result is a lively and entertaining start to 2020. The topics are wide-ranging — spanning Anderson’s journey from Compton to Hollywood, his rough start as a standup comic, and his huge breaks (first being cast in the film “Life”, alongside Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and Bernie Mack, then, only a year later, landing “Me, Myself & Irene” with Jim Carrey).

Later in the hour, Anderson shares an amazing story of a meeting with Martin Scorsese that led to his role in the movie “The Departed”, and details a life-changing realization he had in Australia, while working on the film “Kangaroo Jack.”

Finally, the trio discusses in length everything surrounding the creation and evolution of Anderson’s multi-award-winning sitcom Black-ish, dealing with social issues that so many other shows over the years have shied away from. Anthony also tells a few of his own Prince stories, giving us an idea of what it was like having the honor of being invited to one of the mega-star’s legendary parties.
