Comedian Aries Spears Talks Will Ferrell, Mad TV, and Dave Chapelle
From Mad TV and Jerry MacGuire Aries Spears sits down with The QCB to talk first about A-Rod and his troubles in Major League Baseball.
“I think baseball is still thought of the purest game…I think when you tamper with that formula people tend to get angry with that.”
Aries isn’t a big football fan and says that playing the video game Madden ruined the game for him.
“I got tired of getting beat by 7 year olds that were talking trash to me”
QCB reminisces with Aries about some of his most memorable sketches for the tv series Mad TV
“With the cast we had we had a lot of great chemistry…we were like family”
“With SNL they were always like the big boys on the block”
They knew where they stood with the big boys at Saturday Night Live but when Will Ferrell saw Aries at a car wash and said “we watch you guys when we are getting ready for our show”
Having Will Ferrell and the other cast members from SNL tell him that they loved Mad TV was a big moments for a young Aries Spears.
Go see Aries Spears at the Comedy Zone in Charlotte this weekend. Two shows Friday and Saturday night and a third day has been added on Sunday.
