Comedian Preacher Lawson

Comedian Preacher Lawson

Preacher Lawson is a stand-up comedian, actor, singer, human, professional black guy. I was born in Portland, Oregon, but raised most of my adolescence in Memphis, TN. I moved 20 times before age 10, but if you asked me what city I'm from I'd say Orlando, FL. Because that's where I grew as a comedian.

Growing up switching schools all of the time you had to learn how to adapt. Everywhere I'd go I would learn about different people and different cultures, but I noticed the one universal language everyone had in common was laughter. Which is how I spoke and warmed up to most people. Even when I wasn't the funniest I was still the loudest.

I started writing jokes when I was 16 for about a year, then decided to perform for the first time at age 17 as between my mother and I. Best decision of my life.

Are you addicted to salt and sugar?

Many of us don't even realize that we are addicted to two harmful substances that can easily be substituted. If you love sugar, try using maple syrup. If you love salt, try using Pink Himalayan Salt. Can you believe these two simple replacement ingredients have health benefits?
