(AllHipHop News) Romany Malco has played characters that have been brilliant drug-smuggling botanists, sexually obsessed sales associates and belligerent ex-con turned motivational speaker. He recently told stories from his childhood at Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal Hip Hop improve show and his ability to play such a range of mentally unstable characters became salient.
Malco shared with the packed crowd at the UCB Theatre on East 3rd St in New York City’s Lower East Side a story involving his drunk father escaping from paying for damaging someone’s car by smashing into a bunch of other cars with a young Romany Malco in the car with him.
UCB regulars Cipha Sounds, Phil Jackson and Christian Capozzoli spun this hilarious story into one involving extortion, guns and Black people’s use of the word “uncle”.
Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal is every Friday at 9pm and tickets can be purchased here.
