Brooke Christopher, Host of Monday Night Conversation and The Reel Thing, sits down with Katt Williams and Charlie Murphy to find out what would be their perfect holiday, and whether or not Charlie Murphy could be the next president.
The Perfect Holiday
The first Africa American ensemble comedy for the Christmas season, The Perfect Holiday stars Gabrielle Union, Morris Chestnut, Queen Latifah, Terrence Howard, Malik Hammod, Charlie Murphy, Faizon Love, Jeremy Gumbs, Jill Marie Jones, and Rachel True.
An African American take on the classic ad beloved Christmas family film, The Perfect Holiday tells the story of Nancy (Union), a divorced mother of three who is so busy raising her children that she's forgotten to take care of herself as well. With Christmas fast approaching, she decides to take her kids to the mall to meet Santa Claus, not knowing that her youngest daughter Emily (Khail Bryant) has sensed her mother's sadness and is determined to use her time with Santa to make her mom happy again. Just a few days prior, Emily heard her mom say that all she wanted for Christmas was a compliment from a man, so that's exactly what she tell Santa. Ironically, Santa, as it turns out, is office suply salesman and struggling songwriter Benjamin (Chestnut), who ends up giving Nancy just what she wants for Christmas, and much, much more.
Katt Williams (Delicious) is a comedian known as much for his permed hair as for his animated performances and quick wit. At an age when most teenagers are eagerly anticipating getting their drivers licenses, the young comic quickly discovered that he had a gift for making people laugh. Inspired by the likes of great humorist such as Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg, and Dave Chappelle (whom he calls the Malcolm X of comedy), Williams incomparably acerbic standup routines are laying the blueprint for a new generation of comics.
Charles Q. Murphy (J-Jizzy) may be Eddie Murphy's older brother, but he has managed to sustain his own log career in the comedy world as well. He is perhaps best known for his hysterical appearances o the acclaimed Chappelle's Show, working alongside comedian Dave Chappelle. He has also appeared in the television series The Boondocks.
