(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) JACK SPRATT: Live & Direct (Part 3)


Part 3 of The Heat’s exclusive with Jack Spratt picks up with him speaking on ruffling feathers in the entertainment world. #EPIC:

ARLENE/THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Word on the street is that you ruffled feathers with your Lil Reeva character. Anybody who knows you Jack, knows that you pay homage to successful people, all while putting a comical spin on it. What’s up with that?

JACK SPRATT: Anybody who knows Jack Spratt knows that I’m a cool and a fairly intelligent guy, but I’m an envelope pusher. My characters and brand of comedy are very edgy, in-your-face, controversial, and borderline offensive to some people. It’s never personal. I have just always been the type of person who does and says what everybody else is scared to do or say. That adds shock value to what I do and that’s why so many people gravitate towards my brand. Now Lil Reeva The Queen Zebra is a spoof of the bounce artist that I was referring to earlier. Clearly, he isn’t thrilled about my spoof of him, but who cares? This is comedy. Saturday Night Live, Dave Chappelle, and MAD TV do it all the time. Plus, I do it all the time. This isn’t a personal attack on him, just like it wasn’t a personal attack when I spoofed Tiger Woods, Ray Jay, and the entire Posse Waaaa 102.9 FM radio crew. And if he wasn’t relevant or successful on the entertainment scene, I wouldn’t be spoofing him at all. Some people say that I’m jealous, and some say that I’m hating and that’s ok. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. Still, I have never made any personal attacks on the artist and I never will, because that’s petty and phony to me. I’m bigger than that. If I have something personal against somebody, I confront that person or I make a choice not to deal with them at all. And after depicting a Ku Klux Klansman on Halloween as “Jack Dukkke”, the nation’s most infamous terrorist “All about the Binjamins Laden,” and spoofing some of the most notorious killers in my city as “Cut Throat Courtney”, there is no character or depiction that I believe I can ever do that will be more dangerous or feather-ruffling than those three, in my opinion. The funny thing is that Lil Reeva has already become a fan favorite and the skit hasn’t even dropped yet. And no matter what happens, if the fans want Reeva, I’m gonna give em Reeva.  Such is Life….Na Who Upset?
