We ex-foster kids seem to be renaissance artists. If you needed a license to be a comic, this guy has one! Get this… his father was a notorious and very volatile pimp and his mother was a Jehovah’s Witness… a schizophrenic Jehovah’s Witness. Which means, if she knocks on your door, she’ll answer it too! If that doesn’t earn him the right to perform stand up, then nothing will!
As a skilled and accomplished filmmaker and screenwriter, Amaru can adapt to his environment and make any situation into a humorous story. His comedic storytelling can be mesmerizing at times. The screenwriter in him makes him visual but the kid and the quick wit in him makes for a good time at any club. Amaru is the type of comedian who will say things you didn’t even know you wanted to say. The audience can be very diverse, black, white, in between. Amaru is able to connect with everyone in attendance. It’s more like listening to a friend telling you funny and relevant humorous stories about life, than simply listening to a “comedian” do “stand up”. He’s edgy without being crass, obviously loves his kids like crazy, and his smooth baritone delivery makes him easy to listen to.
