He was a writer for Chris Rock and the 2016 Academy Awards, as well as the upcoming Comedy Central Show Problematic with Moshe Kasher. He was recently selected as a New Face in the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, QC. He has appeared on Comedy Central, IFC and The Oxygen Network (don't judge). And he can currently be seen as that one light-skinned dude on the new series Insecure on HBO. Langston wishes he had even more credits to impress you with; unfortunately, he does not. Maybe you should just accept Langston for who he is. He really is trying his best.
