Zay Zay is a five year old kid who told his dad that he wants to be a comedian. To fulfill his son’s dreams, Zay Zay’s dad wrote him some material, put him on Youtube, and even set him up with a Twitter account and Facebook Fan Page. Watch Zay Zay’s first attempt at a routine, “Growing Up Black.”

The material in this bit is definitely inspired by the early 90′s BET Comicview School of Black Humor, but Zay Zay is a five year brown boy… I could not resist his cuteness even if I wanted to.

What do you think of Zay Zay?

  • African Mami

    LAAAAAAAAAAAAWDDDDDD HAMMMMMMMMMMERCY! Is this child’s real name ZAY ZAY?! Or is it a pseudo?!

    Material is not anywhere laughable but kudos to the boy wanting to be something in life!

  • Misty_Moonsilver

    He’s cute! But his name…. geez.

  • Alexandra

    These comments made me laugh XD! It could be a nickname.
    But he is adorable.

  • Tish

    That was cute, especially the part about “fix yo face”…parents do say that. And I find myself saying it to my godson as well…LMAO

  • kidole

    awww cute kid!

  • mamareese

    Aw he’s cute. But his parents are dead wrong for this. This little boy quoted every negative thing possible. Some of it is true but really….this is worse than ish black folks say. Let this baby grow up and have experinces so he can make funny jokes.

  • iQgraphics

    amused with a tinge of disturbed is how this makes me feel

  • Rosey

    So cute!

  • Nicole

    Not cute or funny! But thats just my opinion.

  • amarie

    I didn’t grow up like that, so it didn’t get a laugh out of me. Cute kid though.

  • sli

    It’s good that his dad is supporting him; he may want to stop beating him, though–maybe he’ll have better material.

  • Mina


  • Bee

    Hmm. I wasn’t even amused. Just disturbed.

  • LaDreaming86

    Honestly, I feel that this video and the one’s like it, (Sh*t Black Mama’s/Mother’s say) only bring light to how there are a lot of Black parents who use violence and verbal abuse to parent their children.

    I didn’t laugh once at this video.

  • Liahness

    LOL its beautiful to see such talent at an early age. He has a dream and he’s making it happen and TWU!

  • Myisha of Pink Panties & Leopard Lipstick

    It’s a video… it was cute! Take it for what it was…. entertainment! Some of ya’ll truly take ish to seriously… Live life and laugh! Sheesh!

  • Nikesha

    He’s adorable

    It wasn’t funny to me (except for the fact that I put my kids’ wasted food in the refrigerator for later on, and then tell them to fix their faces when they frown up about it).

  • Essence

    I’M ROLLINNNNNNNNNNNNNN! HE’S THE CUTEST LITTLE THING EVER! And everything he said was too accurate, whether we like it or not. Good job, Zay Zay!

  • Liz

    Thank you to all of those that supported my is our goal as a family to support our next generation in the direction that they dream of..this was his right now and that is what we did.

    Thanks Again
    Zay Zay Grandmother (and no that is not his birth name).

  • RenJennM

    LOL! He is adorable and his jokes were on point. I’ve been through damn near everything he mentioned. Needs to work on his delivery, but the content was great.

  • NotAmused

    I didn’t find ZayZay funny at all. Probably the funniest thing was “hair, face, hair, face.” We have to stop thinking that child abuse is amusing.
