Chris Laker: Bully
Presented By: Chris Laker
Bullies don’t toughen you up or teach you life lessons. That’s a lie spread by corporations in order to prop up the prison-industrial complex. Chris should know. He got punched a lot as a kid and learned nothing from it. Parents always gave the worst advice. 'Stand up to your bullies! They're cowards,' they'd say. They were not cowards. They were emotionally disturbed and very strong.
Bully's a show about getting the hate out of your heart. NYC-raised comedian Chris Laker's credits: The Late Late Show with James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
