Roland Powell, aka Lil Duval, seems more like a hip-hop star than a standup comedian. It could be that natural swagger he brings to the stage, where he orchestrates laughs the way rappers get hands in the air. Maybe it’s because his viral-video hits—including his signature routine, “Stalkers Anthem (B***h U Mine),” and “Wat Dat Mouf Do”—seamlessly merge an irreverent wit with formidable rapping skills. Or maybe it’s because he has his own fashion line, available on his website, which no comedian has attempted since Louie Anderson’s high-heel company went bankrupt. Most likely the reason Lil Duval elicits that equal balance is because of Cedric the Entertainer, who added the rising comic to his tour and TV special in 2001, and rapper T.I., who signed Duval to his label that same year and went on to showcase him in half a dozen videos. Years later, after commandeering MTV2 as a regular on Guy Code and Hip Hop Squares and as host of the viral-video show Ain’t That America, Duval continues to tear up stages and Twitter feeds with his raw, unfiltered, and rhythmic brand of standup.
Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts
Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
