Wyatt Cenac of Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ shares his ‘New York Memories’ with Time Out NY this week. The Texas born comic, who is also hosts a weekly showcase at Littlefield, talks about spending summers with his grandmother in Crown Heights and loving his visits to the Fulton Mall:
TONY: When I was 19, I lived in Brooklyn with my grandmother for a semester of college while I did an internship. On Sundays, when I wanted to get out of the apartment I’d hop the 2 train and head to the Fulton Mall and just watch guys run three-card monte games. I’d head home and try it, thinking one day maybe I could bring that back to Texas as a way to make a little money. I don’t really see those guys now, as the Fulton Mall is starting to look more and more like any mall, which is part of the sad but inevitable tide of change, but with any luck maybe somebody will start running a three-card monte game outside the fitting rooms of H&M.
