    Robert Townsend and Blessing Offor

    Through his riotous act, “Shakspeare, Pimps, and Hollywood,” Townsend provides a hilarious roller coaster ride through life’s failures, roadblocks, and triumphs. Offor performs his blend of enriching, comforting music with his signature charisma. Their stories “inspire the dreamer in all of us,” and reflect upon the diversity, cross-cultural experience, achievement, and stamina of people of African descent.
