Hard work pays off. It appears that Diddy may have is eyes on adding another podcast to his TV channel, Revolt.

Karlous Miller would end up hinting that something could be in the works by captioning his Instagram post with, “Just to be in the same room with @diddy was a good enough for me. Then that talk we had changed everything, thank you just for the time.”

When Karlous Miller isn’t cracking fans up on Wild N’ Out with MTV2, he’s hosting his 85 South Show Podcast. The show also features DC Young Fly, Chico Bean, and others. Since it’s start, The 85 South Show has developed into a traveling live show; complete with games, music, and improv. For their latest Improv night in Atlanta, we got a chance to see the crew at work. Comedic personalities Light Skin Keisha, Mr. Bankshot, Navv Greene and comedian Fat Man Deezy joined Miller on stage. At one point in the show, the collective of talents got together to give fans a remake version of Family Feud, Dysfunctional Family Feud (Above). Just like the title suggest, this isn’t the Family Feud your grandmother watches. You can watch the full show below.
On a new episode of The 85 South Show presented by Comedy Hype, Chappelle’s Show’s own Donnell Rawlings stopped by the studio to speak with Karlous Miller in the studio while DC Young Fly is on the road. Of course Donnell took time out to explain his history in comedy, the Chappelle’s Show’s legacy, online comedy, and more. At one point of their conversation, Donnell shared his favorite sketch from The Chappelle Show being when Wayne Brady showed his different side.
My favorite sketch is the Wayne Brady sketch… see Paul Mooney did a diss on Wayne Brady, and Wayne saw Dave at a club in New York…. and he was offended by it. Dave felt some type of way about it, and invited Wayne to do that sketch. The funny thing about it was it took Wayne about 35 minutes to say “Is Wayne Brady going to have to choke a b*tch?”

DC Young Fly and Karlous Miller are keeping things going with their push for new radio podcast 85 South Show, presented by Comedy Hype. In the third episode of the series, veteran comedian Rodney Perry (of Bounce TV’s Off The Chain), Ronnie Jordan (Kampus Royalty Tour), and Rob Haze (Last Comic Standing) stopped by. Perry dropped off moments from his comedy up, that included his time in Oakland and competing in the Bay Area Black Comedy Festival. In part of their conversation and jokes, Perry retold a story of when he remembered Katt Williams showing up to the comedy club with own security guard before the fame.
The people that make it, know…. Katt Williams knew. Katt had won this contest… and he was auditioning for this spot to be the opening for the radio station and they didn’t have a dressing room for him. This was a big show. So he went on to take one of the bathrooms, took a sheet of paper and wrote a star on it and putt it up on the bathroom wall…. I remember thinking to myself that he was going to make it. He would do grand stand shit. Katt came in the club with this 6’8 dude, holding an umbrella in his hand. Katt told me the coldest shit I heard from anybody, he said, “N*gga I’m just trying to keep the hater-ade off me..” He was already a star.
