1:1 With Comedian Dale Elliott Jr.
Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: I have a few things, such as school, being able to support my family, and the movie Sprinter that I was in. What I really want to accomplish is ahead of me. At this point, I am more focused. I am happy with what I have done thus far, but I look forward to doing more.
Q: Describe yourself in five words.
A: Smart, handsome, charismatic, disciplined, and consistent with a little sprinkle of arrogance.
Q: What would the title of your autobiography be called?
A: Dale Elliot -The man who created his own opportunities.
Q: Who is your favorite comedian? Past or present?
A: I have a top three- Eddy Griffin, Katt Williams, and Kevin Hart
Q: The best thing about being a performer?
A: The best thing about being a performer in acting is that I can be a whole different person and see how people react. If they are feeling bad, how I made them feel throughout the day, I can change their moods.
I also like performing on the stage for stand-up comedy. I can share all my tragic or happy experiences and still get to laugh about and feel good about them while realizing that other people go through the same things as me.
Q: If you cameo on any show, what would it be?
A: The BMF Series
Q: What are your production essentials when creating your social media content and skits?
A: My essentials are a good working iPhone and sometimes a tripod and microphone.
Q: What does a typical day in the life of Dale Elliot look like?
A: A typical day includes waking up early, drinking tea, practicing breathing exercises, and watching sports (Undisputed and First Take). I go to the gym by midday, take my protein shakes, and eat some fruit.
Then, I think about an idea I want to make for a skit. After I make it, I might play some video games. Or, take a ride to Santa Monica on my bike. Then head back to the gym to stretch and do some pull-up exercises. That is my day 80% of the time.
Q: What’s been the wildest skit you have done so far?
A: I did one when I was really young, jumping off a wall and acting like I was Spartacus. I did a lot of running and jumping in that one.
Q: What has been the most challenging part of building your career?
A: The most challenging aspect of building my career is people…Working with people. And when I say that, I mean just figuring out people’s personalities and true intentions and realizing that it is more of what is done than what is said. Maturity plays a significant role as well. The more you grow in your career, the more you realize what you like and don’t like and what you are willing to do and not do. Definitely work with people, understand them, and act accordingly.
Q: Do you have any rituals to beat a creative block?
A: Not necessarily. Sometimes, I leave my house and try to find something else to inspire me.
Q: If you had to curate a playlist of your life, what songs or artists would you find there?
