Donnell Rawlings Opens Up On How His Son Is An Inspiration In Life And Work

Donnell Rawlings is one funny guy! If you are like me and really enjoyed The Chappelle Show you definitely know of Donnell’s work. He is one hard-working man! He has a podcast, two comedy specials and he goes out to different cities to perform his stand up routine. I had the great pleasure of talking with Donnell about fatherhood, becoming a dad at an older age and how his son inspires him both in life and in his career. 

We chat about what he misses the most about The Chappelle Show, his creative process and the state of stand up comedy. We finish the interview with Fatherhood Quick Five.
