A fan of stand-up comedy dating back to when he would laugh at Laffy Taffy wrappers, Tabari’s sense of humor reflects a wide assortment of influences, speaking on everything from every day annoyances to pop culture, sports and his own personal experiences. Tabari's conversational, every man style has led him to open for a wide range of today's stars, including but not limited to Mike Birbiglia, Tom Segura, Tony Rock, the late Charlie Murphy, Tig Notaro, Sarah Colonna, Chris Porter and John Caparulo among others.
Tabari has also been honored to perform at several prestigious events, such as the illustrious San Francisco Sketch Fest, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival/ and the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, IN. In addition to being featured on Rooftop Comedy’s Road Trip on the MavTV Networkand Hulu.com, Tabari also starred alongside his mom in an episode of HGTV’s popular series Property Virgins buying his first home … Hence the reason he would really appreciate you supporting his career.
With his debut album Laughing With a Panther (2013 Rooftop Media), his sophomore album Remarkable (2018 Rooftop Media) and his national TV debut on Laughs under his belt, Tabari is now looking forward to whatever the future holds ... Which he hopes includes more stage time nationwide, more TV, a third album, world domination – you get the idea.
A prominent writer, Tabari is also the creator & proprietor of "McCoy On Movies," his independent blog about all the films he sees. Tabari is also a regular contributor to CincyChic.com, La Mega Nota (where his column on professional wrestling/sports entertainment is the sole English feature because, as Tabari says, his Español is 'muy feo'), Dayton's MostMetro.com as well as Xavier Nation, the official publication of Xavier University. (As a two-time graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Tabari enjoys the fact that Xavier still is willing to pay him.)
But no matter what he says, he does it with one simple goal in mind: Making people laugh – and hoping he doesn’t anger his family or God in the process.
