“No, I’ve played out of the character. Maybe last year and early this year, I walk on the street and everybody is like OBO OBO, everywhere and I’m like ‘Ah ah’.

“They get excited for new things then all of a sudden they’re gone. So I decided to show my other characters and my other characters earned me movie roles. I’m sure if I was doing the Lowbudget OBO character constantly, I would have been gone by now. I’m a comedian, I’m not a fool”.
