It's A Guy Thing
Mitra Jouhari, Catherine Cohen, and Patti Harrison are three gals who just don't get "guy stuff." They've invited some of the best comedians around town to give them lectures on guy stuff so that they can finally fit in.

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 lightskinned 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.
