Video: From Ashy to Classy – Donnell Rawlings

With his firm grasp of the outrageous, Donnell Rawlings (HBO’s The Wire) was born to make people laugh. He grabbed America’s funny bone on Chappelle’s Show with characters like Ashy Larry and the distinctively jheri-curled Beautiful. Now Donnell goes even further, taking on the entire American culture with impersonations of everybody from Michael Jackson to Barack Obama, and bringing his audience to tears with his razor-sharp insights and fearless observations.

This is funny stuff. In case you didn’t know “Ashy to Classy” is a Biggie phrase; “Sky’s the limit”. I left the remainder of the footage after the jump.
