Dynamic comedian and actor J.B. Smoove forever etched a place in our hearts playing Kevin Hart's boy in BET's reality show parody The Real Husbands of Hollywood and as one of Larry David's besties, Leon, on Curb Your Enthusiasm. In this exclusive convo with EBONY, the smooth-talking stand up and former Saturday Night Live writer discusses his approach to perfecting his craft, the extraordinary tale of how he landed his dream job, and the time he was hoodwinked into swimming with sharks. Catch him as the co-host of Juneteenth Unityfest here on Ebony.com at 5pm EST / 2pm PST.
