Plastic Cup Boyz
Remember back in the day whenever a rapper got famous, that rapper’s crew of fellow MCs would eventually get their chance to shine, too? Tupac had Thug Life. The Notorious B.I.G. had Junior M.A.F.I.A. 50 Cent has G-Unit.
Kevin Hart may not be a rapper, but he does have a posse of comics he rolls with every time he’s on tour.
You may have seen them at the Civic Center in Peoria last year. This crew includes comedians Na’im Lynn and Will “Spank” Horton and THEY will be rockin’ the Jukebox this week!
You’re going to LOVE the Plastic Cup Boyz!
“What happened was we were on tour, and we always had red plastic cups in our greenroom,” says the New Jersey-born Lynn. “And we would go to after-parties and we started taking the cups with us so we didn’t have to drink out of the glasses at the club. We just started calling ourselves that and the name stuck.”
It’s fitting that Lynn and the Philadelphia-born Horton would be tour-mates.
They’re both known for unleashing raw, raunchy, proudly unfiltered jokes on audiences.
Besides performing their own tours and opening hundreds of shows for Hart, they’ve also produced Comedy Central specials, performed on BET’s “Comic View,” guest-starred on Showtime’s “Shameless” and have many other projects in the works!
