Thats because Diamond is concentrating on stand-up comedy and loves focusing his material on the the stuff youre not supposed to bring up.
In his words, I like when people feel uncomfortable. My comedy comes through truth and logic.
Diamond recently got to test his approach by performing in some urban comedy clubs for the upcoming Showtime series, White Boyz In The Hood, which features Caucasian comics trying their best material on black audiences.
He says hes heard its a tough crowd, but not if youre truly funny. However, as he puts it, If they smell fear, youre done. You have to say what you believe and stand by it, even if the audience doesnt like it.
Diamond is confident in his performance at the club, in part because the audience gave him a standing ovation.
White Boyz In The Hood debuts next Thursday (Oct. 5).
