Talking With Brandon T Johnson & Denise Xavier | BHL’s Stand-Up, Sit-Down

BHL: Stand-up, Sit-down — In this episode, Black Hollywood Live host Nick Perdue interviews comedian Fuquan Johnson.
Jackson was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, the son of Beverly Yvonne (Bozeman) and Wayne Timothy Jackson. His parents are both pastors, and his maternal grandfather was a Pentecostal child preacher. He credits his sense of humor to both his father and his life straddling the fence between suburbia and the inner city.

Brandon held the title of “class clown” and grew his passion for comedy and acting by doing talent shows and performing at youth nights at his father’s church. By age 14, Brandon’s career as a stand-up comic evolved from local school shows and community projects, such as the “Motor City Youth Festival”, to an appearance in Marc Cayce’s film, Nikita Blues (2001).

Brandon took an internship at local Detroit radio station 93.1 FM and soon found himself as a guest host at 105.9 FM. Brandon’s drive took him to Hollywood where, in 2001, he was cast as an extra in major movies such as Ali (2001), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and 8 Mile (2002). He began to get calls to open up and work with comedians, such as Chris Tucker and Wayne Brady.

Talking With Fuquan Johnson | BHL’s Stand-Up, Sit-Down

BHL: Stand-up, Sit-down — In this episode, Black Hollywood Live host Nick Perdue interviews comedian Fuquan Johnson.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Fuquan Johnson focussed in on his career goals while in High School. As a teenager, Fuquan became notorious amongst his peers for cracking jokes in class. In High School, he realized he wanted to do comedy after watching Eddie Murphy’s “RAW”. “The moment I saw Eddie Murphy doing stand up, a light bulb went off in my head and I knew that I was destined to be a Comedian”. Connecting with his middle school friend, Damien Dante’ Wayans (nephew to the infamous Wayans Brothers), Fuquan expressed his desire to pursue comedy as a career. Damien introduced young Fuquan to his uncle, Damon Wayans.

Upon graduating from High School, Fuquan attended HB Studios for Acting located in Greenwhich Village in New York City where actors such as Oscar Winning Actor Sidney Poitier, Debbie Allen, Al Pacino, and Scott Wolf also got their start. Getting his feet wet within the entertainment industry, he completed work as an Extra for notable TNT movies such as “Passing Glory” and “Freedom Song”.

In 2004, Fuquan moved to LA where he was hired as an Extra for several episodes of the television ABC sitcom, “My Wife & Kids”. Not waiting for the next opportunity to fall into his lap, Fuquan earned his first comedic dollar at the Family Room Bar in Compton, Los Angeles. “I made about twenty-five bucks but I was ecstatic”, recalls Fuquan. When asked to describe himself, Fuquan states, “I am witty with a hard edge. I think outside the box. When I’m on stage, I talk about my crazy life experiences”.

From 2009-2011, a huge break came when Fuquan toured all of North America as the opening act for Shawn and Marlon Wayans. “I traveled to every state in America and Canada. It was an experience to be remembered”, states Fuquan. Gracing the stage to notorious venues such as Caroline’s in New York, all of the Improvs, Tommy T’s, Pepper Bellies in California, Standup New York, and many more, Fuquan was able to establish himself in the world of Comedy.

Stating his influences as Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, the Wayans Family, Lenny Bruce, and George Collins, Fuquan aspires to be a Staff Writer and Actor on shows such as Saturday Night LIVE, gain a few short films in the bucket, act in blockbuster hits, and headline in sold out venues. In his spare time, Fuquan loves to write, shoot sketches, and play basketball.

The Carthan family now resides in Los Angeles, California, where they have created a strong foundation of love for their children and limitless opportunities for their careers!  Living in LaLaland for two years has not only challenged Nick’s craft to higher levels of accomplishments, but it has also fueled his stand-up with fusions of his trials and hilarious tribulations in caring for his first baby, and juggling a comedian wife with a career of her own.  Nick’s weekly comedy crawl includes venues such as The World Famous Laugh Factory in Hollywood, The Comedy Store on Sunset, and The Comedy Union.
