Jermaine Fowler has never shied away from a challenge. The comedian and actor dropped out of college to become a stand-up and painstakingly worked his way up the ranks of show business until landing his breakthrough performance opposite his comedy idol Eddie Murphy in 2021’s Coming 2 America.
In this episode of The Last Laugh podcast, Fowler talks about his latest leading role in The Drop as a man whose life is thrown into comedic chaos after his wife (PEN15’s Anna Konkle) drops their friend’s baby at a destination wedding. Fowler also discusses the highs and lows of his comedy career so far, from rejecting “imposter syndrome” while acting opposite Murphy to the promising sitcom he co-created with Abbott Elementary’s Quinta Brunson that never saw the light of day to the game-changing stand-up hour he currently has in his sights.
When I ask Fowler to lay out the premise of his new movie, which premiered on Hulu this past Friday, he starts with the short version: “The Drop is about this couple whose relationship gets tested.”
