What'd Lil Wayne Ever Do to You?

TV and movies have a weird way of warping famous people into mythological gods and goddess that somehow also make non-famous people look pudgier and more serf-like as if there's a special camera filter made for both of them. Everyone has a story about meeting a famous celebrity and how the experience completely jaded their few of them for the rest of their life. I once met Captain Kangaroo and the scent of whiskey breath sends a shiver down my spine to this day. Comedian Dean Edwards has a similar story about Lil Wayne and it starts with the fact that he has to call him "Lil'." The star of MTV2's "GuyCode" and the host of TV One's "Vidiots" will be more than glad to talk about that and whatever else he has on his mind when he graces the stage of Hyena's Comedy Nightclub (5321 E. Mockingbird Ln.) at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
