In 2007 Lavell Crawford was runner-up on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, a fact he states at the beginning of his 2011 Comedy Central special Can a Brother Get Some Love?, not to brag but to lament the lost opportunities for all the trash he could’ve talked had he won. Gleefully describing the way he would’ve told off women who rejected him and teachers who belittled him, Crawford displays a jolly hedonism not unlike the contented grunts Huell, his character on Breaking Bad, makes after giving into the urge to lie down on that irresistibly comfy-looking cash pile. Like W.C. Fields or Tony Montana, Crawford is that rare man of insatiable appetite we're always happy to watch indulging. Crawford returns to San Antonio for two shows to be taped live for his forthcoming Showtime special New Look, Same Funny!
