My Chat with REPO!!!

You won't meet one like the up and coming comedian, Repo. With his edgy humor and witty spin on life's everyday loves, battles and struggles, Webster hasn't found the true definition of comedy. Come listen in as I unveil the mind behind the laughter.

1, What is your government name? Imma have to wait for my student loan folks get off my back before i answer that one.

2, Who came up with Repo? What's the story behind it? The name Repo came from one place but has three different meanings. I let this female (typical start to a story huh) borrow my car and she didn't want to answer the phone when i needed it and it started raining and i was on my bike. So i called up my folks got my spare key went over there and stole my own car. Three days later she called me up askin WHY i took my own car....so i told her from now on call me the Repoman.In the bike community folks started watching me drink and how much my small but almost sexy frame could hold so they said "Watch out he repossess all beverages at the bar"Lastly but most important...many things were takin from me in life due to my laid back nature in the forms or opportunities and even self..and now im taken all that back .....are you ready for the Repo-louition

3, How did you know this was the industry you wanted to pursue? I really didnt know. I started writing poetry round the age of 9..just to release my demons..and im actually quiet in public but the way i look at life and compare situations just so i can understand them and put into perspective, although odd ...entertains folks. One day i got a phone call from one my bois in the #1 Stunnas and he just said "Repo get your ass on stage and call me when you get off and let me know what hap pend"and once i got on stage and felt the challenge and got to say what i wanted to say and folks listened..i fell in love...even more than the love for gin.

4, Were you funny all of your life? Were you a class clown? I never saw my self as funny just different with a funny outlook, class clown....um id say more of the class idiot who accidentally blurted out things or may do stuff to shock and awe my classmates just cuz i finished my work before everybody else.

5, How did family and friends react to your interest in comedy? I know we all have the "nay" sayers, did you have anyone who did not support your dream? It was a shock not because of the fact they didnt know my potential but because i was on stage doing it. I was always in the background and still like that so when they actually saw that i was on stage they mouth dropped. They thought i was just talkin shit again. I didnt have really any "nay" sayers it was more less "bout daymn time either that or get a crazy check. Im still thinkin bout the check though...times is hard.As far as coming out to support..kinda touchy. Its hard for me because the friends and family that be around me tend to make excuses why they never seen me on stage other than videos i sent them or they ran across. i honestly must say the most support and kicks in the ass by not bein on stage came from when i started riding with the #1 Stunnas. So when i finally told them i was on stage the harassing phone calls and threats to shave my chia pet stopped.

6, What fuels your material? Is any of it real life experiences? Imma story teller with a strange twist. It all started by writtin about bike parties and the way i saw it happen and what i added. Most of my jokes are real life through my eyes. I have many stories that i was told folks still read. I gotta email from a gurl one day tellin me that she went back and printed everything i wrote ona web site just so she could have something worth reading under the dryer. Life period fuels my material and my desire to bring darkness to light.

7, Would you say your act is edggy? Is it a family friendly show? SIGH um ....sumtimes over the top..most the time. Im still young so im finding different was to tell the same jokes to a pg crowd and not loose the effect. So i guess it depends where im at8, Do you feel you need life lessons to fuel your material? Yes...you caint talk about something you dont know about. Even if its somebody elses life lesson it teaches you a lesson and when you talk bout it lesson learned on both parts.

9, Let's talk about your latest project. I hear that you are doing big things. Care to tell us about it? Well i taught my sea horse ta fetch but other than that, the idea has been tossed round by me and a very respected entertainment co in OKC bout me hosting a comedy show two times a month the idea is still on the table so im not going to go too much into it but it was an honor when i was asked.Also me and one my boys are working on a script for a commercial that we joked around about 2 years ago and up and coming director heard bout it and said "i think it will be a good look..get back to me" ..so working on that as well.

10, Where can your fans check you out?
