Duat Mai by. Takeo Hope.

Duat is dope and it’s his birthday today. He’s one of those performers you hate to follow because he’s so good. He has a solid persona, so that off-hand comments get a laugh which forces the succeeding comedian to work that much harder. He’s also from my hometown Pittsburg, CA and is the first person I think about when I tell my childhood friends who they need to see in the City. I think he’s on the cusp of rocketing and I can’t wait to see what he does when his time comes. Happy Birthday Duat.
