Sadiki Fuller’s album Single Again: clean comedy with just enough edge (Review)

Sadiki Fuller’s latest album, Single Again (Uproar! Entertainment) offers a well-crafted behind-the-scenes view into the comedian’s personal and romantic life that proves that there is most definitely a place for clean humor in today’s comedy scene. The San Francisco native, who used to be the mascot for the Golden State Warriors before quitting to pursue comedy full-time, dishes, among other things, on about his relationships, helping the homeless, seeking out racism at church.
“I’m going to go to church on Sunday and test out your church,” Fuller tells the Seattle audience. “I like racism. I like to find a really pretty white girl, and I take her with me to an all-black church, and we sit in the front and see where the real Christians are.” It’s a simple, economic joke; and succinctly creates editorial surrounding sometimes not-so-accepting religions.
It helps, of course, the Houston-born, San Francisco-bred comedian is an incredibly likeable guy. His honest, hilarious observations about growing up surrounded by women are not only accurate — “When your mom kicks your dad out, she changes. She has to be the mom and the father, so she’s like Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Bitch.” — but also smart and edgy enough to attract comedy fans who need their jokes to bit back just a bit.
From start to finish, Fuller commands his crowd and captures its attention all the while entertaining everyone and (likely) offending no one. Single Again is available now. Download your copy now at iTunes.
